"This book is about grace," writes Robert L. Millet. "This is a book about works. It is, in fact, a book about how 'grace works.'" Members of many Christian faiths stress the importance of grace — some even denying the necessity of good works. Some Latter-day Saints react by mistakenly arguing that we don't believe in grace. Brother Millet writes about our plight as fallen beings, what it means to be saved by grace, and why we should not fail to appreciate this heavenly gift. As he observes, "We have an obligation to cooperate with God in the salvation of our souls." Grace Works shows how each of us can allow Christ's Atonement to purify and strengthen us as we strive to overcome our individual sins and mortal limitations.

This book gave me hope!
by Jeremy - reviewed on October 26, 2007
I loved this book because it was easy to read, I felt like I was just listening to a great teacher the whole time. The best part is the perspective that this gave me on the atonement, it has helped me to see that messing up on small things is normal and that with the Savior's help someday I'll be able to get over those weaknesses, even if that day isn't today.
