Harvard S. Heath, ed., Confidence amid Change: The Presidential Diaries of David O. McKay, 1951-1970 (Salt Lake City: Signature Books, 2019), 300-304.

“Church President David O. McKay was uncomfortable with McConkie’s book and its authoritative title and so he commissioned a committee to investigate. Two senior Apostles, Mark E. Petersen and Marion G. Romney, documented what they considered to be 1,067 errors and recommended it not be republished.”
