"This is what we must engrain in our very souls: The Book of Mormon is the tool that will retain converts better than any other thing. If we root the people to our sociality, or friendliness, or love, we root them to us instead of to Christ." Ed J. Pinegar, "Especially for Missionaries," Vol. 1

"When you teach with power, you teach the mind and the will of God. You fulfill D&C 68:4. You speak by the Spirit, and the Spirit speaks the word of Christ, which is the mind and the will of God. Do you remember what was happening about the time of Alma 17:2-3? Alma had gone one way and the sons of Mosiah had gone another way, and they met up again as the sons of Mosiah were traveling toward the land of Zarahemla. Alma must have said something like, 'Oh Ammon, Omner, Himni, and Aaron, it's so good to see you,' and no doubt they exchanged embraces and hugs. Then Alma said that what added to his joy was that his friends had 'waxed strong in the knowledge of the truth' and 'they were men of sound understanding.' Why? Because 'they had searched the scriptures diligently, that they might know the word of God.' But this was not all. They'd also 'given themselves to much prayer and fasting,' so that when they spoke, they spoke by revelation and by prophecy, 'with the power and authority of God.'" - Ed J. Pinegar, "Especially for Missionaries, 4 vols." [American Fork, Ut.: Covenant Communications, 1997], Vol. 3
