This Bookshelf Single is a written transcript of the original audio talk.The last hours of Christ's life contain some of His most profound teachings. During this period, He bestowed upon men and women the precious gifts of His mercy. Popular speaker and teacher Michael Wilcox discusses the events of those final days, culminating in Gethsemane and on the cross. Bearing witness to how readily the Lord forgives us and turns our sins from crimson to white, Brother Wilcox reminds us of lessons from the parable of the prodigal son and how they relate to the Atonement. He describes key symbols of the Atonement — the scars of the Savior's sacrifice — and explains how they suggest intimacy, submission, and adoration. This message contains powerful insights about the depth and breadth of the Savior's compassion, where we can all find hope, forgiveness, and healing.

S. Michael Wilcox has a way of putting things into perspective for me. I think of things in a new light everytime I hear one of his cd's. I loved this talk on cd and will listen to it time and time again.

Brother Wilcox has a way of making the scriptures come to life and of helping you see things in a new light. This is a wonderful talk - we listen to again and again in the car and learn/hear something new each time. He has helped me as someone who struggles to be consistent with personal study to love the scriptures. Can't wait for whatever comes next.
