Living apostles and prophets have testified that the atonement of Jesus Christ is the most important event in time or all eternity, and the event upon which our Heavenly Father's plan of happiness rests.
The event centers on Gethsemane, the place where the Savior of the universe experiences his greatest suffering. It was the place where all prophetic history came together and eternity hung in the balance — the place where the Savior confronted the bitter cup and drained its dregs to the last drop. In latter-day revelation, the Savior himself bore personal testimony of his redemptive experience in that garden spot on the Mount of Olives and explained its significance for all mankind.
Andrew C. Skinner explores the glorious triumph over sin, hell, spiritual death, and the Devil, showing how the bitterest agony for the One provided the sweetest joy for all of us.
Of the three volumes the author wrote on the Atonement, this one in is the least powerful of the trio, but still a good read.
Simple, beautiful and powerful! What an amazing book about the atonement. Thank you Dr. Skinner!
What a wonderful book. It has given me a new perspective to the Savior's sacrifice for us. I suggest this book for everyone's home library.
I am only a third of the way through the book and already I think I have learned more than I ever imagined. This is simply one of the most well written books on the Atonement I have ever read.If you can, I suggest buying this book for your home library.
