When the Germans first occupied Denmark, Piet Hein felt he had to join the Danish resistance movement. Hein’s greatest weapon was his pen. His grooks were a spirit-building, coded form of passive resistance. His grooks are multi-faceted and characterized by irony, paradox, brevity, precise use of language, rhythm, and rhyme. They were often satiric in nature.
Author and award-winning poet, Bill Wylson, believes “the Latter-day Saints are in a type of resistance movement of our own. We are fighting the forces of evil and resisting the temptations of Satan and the world. It would be tragic indeed if we lost our faith in a moment of crisis and threw away the blessings of eternity promised to the faithful. Faith in Jesus Christ will always be rewarded.”
In this volume, the author has attempted to cite the words and teachings of President Russell M. Nelson, prophet and president of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and to express his ideas in the form of latter-day grooks.
