    One thought on “Latter-day Liberty: A Gospel Approach to Government and Politics”

    1. Connor presents a convincing argument for how an honest and consistent approach to Mormonism would play out in politics. According to Connor, Mormonism most comfortably and authentically fits with the freedom philosophy than with any other ideology out there. Although I was convinced of that notion before reading this book, I find it hard for somebody to be a fully-committed Mormon and adhere to any ideology other than that of classical liberalism. There are certainly doubters out there, and tho [...]

    2. This is an excellent book. Though the LDS church does not get involved in the political process, it certainly teaches principles that can be applied to politics. This book takes the opportunity to examine politics from a Latter Day Saint perspective. It is a non partisan approach to government. In fact, this book criticizes both political parties and points out that neither of them have been perfect champions of liberty.This book draws on information from the Bible, the Book of Mormon, and quote [...]

    3. Latter Day Liberty is a timely book that redraws the line between liberty and tyranny in a political climate where that line has been obscured. While the two major political parties do nothing more than perpetuate each other’s policies and put on a front of fighting for freedom, this book brings clarity to the concept of genuine liberty. Primarily directed to members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, it examines Church history and doctrine from the standpoint of liberty and g [...]

    4. Disclaimer: I know Connor a bit. Not best buds or anything, but I've met him a few times and we communicate sometimes via email. Knowing a bit about Connor and what he's written on his blog, I had expectations of something good, but not quite on this level. Plus I wasn't a big fan of the cover, so my expectations were tempered by that. But I was quite impressed with the book. Maybe it's because I just finished and the glow will wear off after a few days, but man, this is great stuff. I've read a [...]

    5. Latter-day Liberty provides a much needed clarity and perspective on the proper role between man, God, and government. Topic by topic Boyack suggests scripturally based remedies to many of the social, economic, and political ailments facing society. The overall message is consistent with a standard laid out by Joseph Smith that: "All men are, or ought to be free, possessing unalienable rights, and the high and noble qualifications of the laws of nature and of self-preservation, to think, and act [...]

    6. For me the real value of this book is as a collection of great quotes on libertarianism from a wide range of thinkers; quoting everyone from Ayn Rand and Murray Rothbard to Ezra Taft Benson and David O. McKay. My highlighter was busy as I read this. Intially, I was hoping this would be an Mormon-focused rendition of "Defending the Undefendable" because I do find that I'm constantly trying to reconcile my libertarian approach to social-issue politics with the morality of my religion. But the auth [...]

    7. Latter-day Liberty attempts to take the teachings of the scriptures and the counsel of modern-day prophets of The Church of Jesus Christ of Later-day saints, and use them as a foundation for understanding what government should and should not do. The first part of the book looks more at the philosophy, and the second part more at the implementation of that philosophy as illustrated by several high-profile policies, including war, immigration and the war on drugs.The book is very well written, su [...]

    8. Politics isn't my cup of tea, but I picked up this book on recommendation from my father-in-law and figured it wouldn't hurt to broaden my knowledge a bit. The book was well researched and written. The author brought up some good and thought-provoking ideas. I was a little disappointed with some of his points, especially in the war section. However, I did learn a fair bit about liberty and it gave me several things to think about with regard to politics and the place of government. It changed th [...]

    9. Brilliant book! Highly recommended! Connor really has his head screwed on ! If you want to know the truth of how far our government has drifted from the original intent of what our founding fathers wanted for this country, read this book! Every Liberty minded person should read this book. This book has come at a time when our Liberty as never been more curtailed, citizens of our country need to wake up open their eyes and do something about it, this book will help with the eye opening! Good Job [...]

    10. Excellent! A must-read for anyone who wants to understand and maintain our liberties. The first half of the book explains the background and foundation; then the second half applies everything to modern-day examples. Admittedly, the first half is a little more tedious to read, but it is necessary in order to understand the modern-day applications in the second half. But it is well worth the effort! Great book!

    11. This is a really important book--every Latter-Day Saint in this difficult election year should examine attitudes about liberty and governance--and this book is a tremendous help and an important voice for liberty. Well researched, well written, well reasoned, quotes from Church leaders and good solid thinking about the problems we have today and what government can and should do (or not do) about them. A modern-day Title of Liberty to hold up to the world.

    12. Connor Boyack did an excellent job arguing for libertarianism by supporting many principles espoused by LDS leaders. I enjoyed listening to it and being reminded of the many inspiring and wise things that have come out of the mouths of LDS leaders since the beginning of the church. Whether you are LDS or not, I feel the principles described are universally applicable and are worth a read.

    13. Really liked this the author is well read and understands liberty like few in our nation. I dont agree with all of this book ( national defense comes to mind ) but I respect his opinions and can see the train of logic he uses to support them.

    14. I recommend this book highly for any LDS member confused about politics. Doesn't matter if you're left or right leaning, after reading this book you will be more aligned with the principles of the LDS faith. It's simple and rather an introduction which is good if you're new to the topic of freedom.

    15. A phenomenal book! This book greatly changed my political perspective and should be a must read for all LDS members!

    16. This book was excellent! I was a little skeptical going into it. But I found it informative and enlightening. I highly recommend it to members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

    17. Although I didn't agree with everything the author states, it's an informative and thought provoking book.

    18. I learned so much from this book. Has great and logical insight on liberty and how we should act as free people. The government is robbing us of our rights and he explains how they are doing it.
