Lorenzo Snow's portrait hangs over the main stairwell in the Salt Lake
Temple. It is an astonishingly fine work. In the artists brush strokes there
is evidence of sorrow mixed with a quiet thoughtfulness. Some say that he, like
Lincoln, suffered from depression. And that he, like Lincoln, was a wise and
kind man of gentle, Christlike actions who was also practical. In his life he
exhibited remarkable endurance, loyalty and an sense humility, love, fairness
and justice. I hope to enjoy this new book, and hope to better understand the
story of man in the portrait.
