it was amazing

I read this for the first time on my mission--and just in time, because even though I had studied the gospels in Seminary, this book lays out so clearly the complete life and ministry of the Savior.

The best part is the footnotes--just knowing the little details makes the life of the Savior that much more real and close, like you were there. So many things about Nazareth and Judea sounded like Paraguay to me that on a long walk through strange places (15 miles a day sometimes) I could look around and say, "This is like a road Jesus walked on."

This book definitely helped me solidify a growing testimony that I could bear to the people of Paraguay. I highly recommend it to missionaries and to anyone who teaches a Sunday School class.

Nate I remember really enjoying this book as well, also on the mission. This one was heavy on the details and just a great collection of data to read.
