Product Description

Along with Nephi, "we talk of Christ, we rejoice in Christ, we preach of Christ," (2 Nephi 25:26) but in all our talking and learning, have we learned how to live in Christ? What does a life in Christ look like—or feel like?

In this thought-provoking exploration of the writings of the Apostle Paul and Book of Mormon prophets, Adam Miller examines what life in Christ looks like. How can we let ourselves and our own desires die so we can be born again to a new life, a full life in Christ, here and now in this mortal life?

Embark with the author on this journey—at once scriptural, philosophical, and literary—and discover one way to share a life with Christ as if he were present today.

After 82 years of gathering the pieces, this author gave me the picture to the puzzle of how it all goes together.

I got this as a gift for my husband. It is his favorite book! He reads, then re-reads it, gives away copies to family and friends whenever possible. And talks about its principles with everyone he can!

Wow. Amazing! Loved it.

This is life changing. I never looked at life this way. I will read it again.

Logical Philosophy
By , Submitted on 2018-09-06

I love the unique perspective of this author. It reminded me of a logic class I took in college. In this case, the logic was applied to our relationship to Christ. i recommend this book to those who want to challenge their intellectual understanding of what it really means to die and resurrect.

I have listened to this book at least 5 times. Each time I gain understanding of something I barely grasped the time before. I feel so blessed to have this beautiful perspective of Christ-centered living.

Small but Mighty
By , Submitted on 2018-08-19

I listened to this book first, but then I bought it - there are too many wise words to take in auditorially, and even though it is a small book, it's a huge subject. If I study it enough, maybe I can wrap my brain around its concepts. I have a tendency toward discouragement and perfectionism (not in a good way) and I think if only I can adopt Brother Miller's profound ideas into my own thinking I can do this earth life thing better. Be braver. I'm so grateful he wrote it.

I just read this entire book today and it is one of the most life changing books that I’ve ever read! I couldn’t stop reading it! I feel a new vision of what my purpose in life really is now! I’m so excited to live a life in Christ! This is one of my top 5 favorite books of all-time out of the thousands of books that I’ve read in my life!

I love listening to Adam S. Miller read his book. When I go to bed, I but this book on the sleep timer and it relaxes me and I can sleep peacefully. I like to listen to it repeadedly and I hope I get the message of being born again deep in my soul and am making the transition into "An Early Resurrection". There is so much to think about and it always puts a smile in my heart. Thank you Deseret Book.

Profound insights
By , Submitted on 2018-07-07

This is a very insightful book on how to live in Christ and to do it for the right reasons. I plan to revisit this book multiple times. It helped me to stop thinking of peace and happiness as a future state, but something I can partake of to a greater degree now.

Much better than his other books
By , Submitted on 2018-06-20

I was not a fan of other books by this author, but the idea of the book and thumbing through the book sparked my interest once again. This book is a very quick read, though you could go back and study each chapter carefully and get much more from it. Some parts are a bit dry or repetitive, but overall I think the message given is excellent. I get the feeling this author is the kind that is better to listen to in his classroom than by reading his books. I would recommend this book to everyone, teens and up. It is a good read but not necessarily a book you have to have for the library.

A renewal of my perspective

This book was paradigm shifting. I enjoyed straightforward, easy to digest language used to convey rich philosophical insight. It helped me to appreciate life more and to take my faith in my daily living forward in a more meaningful Christ centered way

Made me think differently about life's journey
By , Submitted on 2018-06-14

I listened to the audio version of this book. It's not too long and thought it would be interesting. It was more than just interesting -- it made me think about my life and my relationship with the Savior differently. The author is quite philosophical but not over my head. It was more in a "wow, I never thought of it that way". The chapter on weakness I listened to three times in a row. This is a book I highly recommend and will most likely gift to others.
