A Gathering of Eagles: Conversions from the Four Quarters of the Earth
Matthew chapter twenty-four contains one of the most vivid but least understood of the Lord's New Testament Parables. After warning His disciples of great calamities which would precede his Second Coming, the Savior promised: " . . . wheresoever the carcass is, there will the eagles be gathered together." In A Gathering of Eagles the authors show how this remarkable parable is being fulfilled in the great missionary work of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Illustrated by the miraculous conversion stories of fifty-seven men and women, the authors show that the "Eagles" are the noble and elect who are gathered to the Church in these Latter Days. Like eagles they are high minded, farsighted, and unentangled with the world. They are free and independent thinkers. They are restlessly searching for the carcass, or the body of the Church. These eagles circle and soar in the skies of the world searching the ground for the life giving morsels of the Gospel. And like eagles of the air, the gathering of the Lord's elect will occur in a miraculous, inexplicable and even mysterious manner. These true and well-documented stories from A Gathering of Eagles will both instruct and inspire.
