This is intended to be a comprehensive collection of all of Neal Ash Maxwell’s published works, as well as related documents from various authors. The bibliography to The Collected Works of Neal A. Maxwell was invaluable in its preparation, as was the bibliography to A Disciple’s Life (which I have yet to completely incorporate). However, these have proven to be incomplete, and thus I have embarked on creating a (more) complete list of Brother Maxwell’s works. Many of you have contributed, with especial thanks to Daniel Mower and Matt Bean.
I won’t try to tell the story of Elder Maxwell here–others have done that far better. I recommend the entry at Grampa Bill’s G.A. Pages and Bruce C. Hafen’s biography of Elder Maxwell, A Disciple’s Life. The Neal A. Maxwell Institute for Religious Scholarship has also made a brief biography available.
Although I have included links to the more accessible works, many more obscure pieces (such as introductions, scholarly articles from his early career at the University of Utah, etc.) I have as yet been unable to track down a copy of. If you know of any works I have omitted from this compendium or if you find any mistakes here, please leave a comment with further details.

Statement from the First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. 22 July 2004.
We greatly sorrow over the passing of our beloved associate and friend, Elder Neal Ash Maxwell of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles. His life has been most extraordinary. He has excelled in the very many endeavors in which he has been engaged and particularly in his devoted service since his call to the Apostleship in 1981.
His incisive mind, his tremendous teaching abilities and his remarkable leadership have greatly assisted in moving forward the work of the Church in all the world.
Our hearts reach out to his beloved companion, Colleen, and other family members. We pray the Lord will comfort and sustain them at this difficult time.
