I had a hard time getting started in this book and couldn't figure out why. I have loved listening to Elder Featherstone talk, why wouldn't his book be similar? Then I was able to see the completely disjointed chapters, the chapter titles that were completely unrelated to their subject matter and the jumping around from paragraph to paragraph. This wasn't even a set of several talks put as chapters to make into a book, it was just kind of a mess.

You can feel the enthusiasm of the author, but it
Good book, uplifting thoughts and feelings.

While this book is presented as a novel showing an insight into the "character and compassion of Jesus Christ as well as examples of the holiness found in the Lord's modern-day prophets and apostles", it read more as a compilation of various sermons Elder Featherstone has made throughout his life. But this wasn't acknowleged outright, like Henry B. Eyring did in his book, "To Draw Closer to God", which is fantastic and one of my all-time favorites.

How do you critique a church book? Hmmmmmm.... I liked it, but let me add a few words. I LOVE Vaughn J. Featherstone; I've heard him speak several times and I always enjoy him. I also admire his life and how much has done. For some reason though this book was a bit difficult for me. I thought he had EXCELLENT stories, scritpures, and quotes. I was interested in the vast majority of the book. However, it wasn't organized very well (at least to me) so I was confused when he switched topics abruptl ...more
This is a great book about Christ told by Elder Featherstone. It was neat reading different things about Christ that I never knew or never really thought about before. This book also gives some good insight to his life as well. Jesus Christ truly is the savior of the world.
Good book. The first chapter was hard to get into, but once I got accustomed to his writing/speech style, it was a much smoother read. I enjoyed it.
I liked this book. It was easy to read, but added a different twist to some of the basic gospel principles we hear every day.
Good book to bring us closer to our Savior through extended knowledge of Him.
Lean to be more Christ-like with this well referenced book.
