Read in December, 2009
Finished this one finally. It was well worth it. Very worth it! I love the way Elder Holland has focused on different aspects and pulled together the references all centered on what we can learn of Christ. Recommend to all. And will be useful to refer to and maybe even re-read in the future.
One of my favorite quotes (ideas) he brought out is that we know very little about Jesus' life before his mission but only that He "grew, and waxed strong in spirit, filled with wisdom, and the grace of God was upon him." Those areas should be our focus in life also -- health, intelligence/wisdom and spiritual strength.
I couldn't find my Jesus the Christ book but knew I wanted to re-center on Christ and found this one again. Looks very good. (Tayler, this is your book I gave to you on your 18th birthday -- you'll have to let me know if you want me to send it to you when I'm done.)
