The Jesus We Need to Know (Talk on CD)
This Bookshelf Single is a written transcript of the original audio talk.
When the Savior taught the Nephites, He asked, "What manner of men ought ye to be?" His answer was, "Even as I am." What was Jesus like? We know He is our Redeemer, and much has been written about what He taught, but do we know what He was really like - what qualities, characteristics, and attributes Jesus has that we can try to incorporate into our lives? Beloved teacher and student of the scriptures Michael Wilcox looks carefully at stories from the scriptures to show what we can learn about Jesus' personality and character. As we come to know what the Savior is like, our desire and our ability to draw near to Him increase. With the fresh perspectives and warmth he is known for, Brother Wilcox helps us see a personality full of sensitivity, wisdom, and sustaining love, and introduces us to the Jesus we need to know.

Brother Wilcox has a gift to explaining the scriptures that make them personal to me. This CD really helped me better understand the personality and compassion of the Savior. This is one I'll listen to over and over again.
