it was amazing
bookshelves: religion
Read from August 14, 2011 to January 14, 2012 — I own a copy

I felt very humbled as I felt some small increase in my understanding of the meaning of the atonement. Although it really wasn't, it seemed like wall-to-wall scripture citations, and I feel peace when reading it.

In the middle of the book there was something about eternity comparing it to peeling away curtains I found that very interesting and want to find that statement again. The atonement applies not just to sins but also to our weaknesses and our mistakes.

I especially liked Chapter 15:Infinite in Love. I also quite liked Chapter 26.

Chapter 27: Appreciation for the Atonement

From the Foreword:
“Truth, glorious truth, proclaims there is such a Mediator. …Through Him mercy can be fully extended to each of us without offending the eternal law of justice.” “This truth is the very root of Christian doctrine. You may know much about the gospel as it branches out from there, but if you only know the branches and those branches do not touch that root, if they have been cut free from that truth, there will be no life nor substance nor redemption in them.” (Conference Report, April 1977, Page 80).
