Product Description

Does your teenager know how much Heavenly Father loves him or her? In this one-of-a-kind book, teenagers (and adults) will understand that 1) Heavenly Father knows we're not perfect. 2) That is why He has provided a way for all of us to return to Him in heaven: the Atonement of Christ. As you read you'll attend a class with eight fictional seminary students as they discuss with their teacher the plan of salvation and the importance of making and keeping covenants. Through the engaging dialogue and lively class discussion, the students learn that while God's children are not perfect, we can all still go to heaven.

"I believe this is one of the most powerful and effective tools for teaching the doctrine of the Atonement to teenagers." Author Anthony Sweat is able to get into the hearts and minds of our youth with an ingenious device - a fictional seminary class. Parents with teenagers could use this book as a resource for a series of family home evening lessons. I loved the basketball analogy which could be easily re-created for the classroom. The editor told me he wants each of his grandchildren to read this book. Personally, I have seen the lights go on inside the minds of a number of youth in our ward after reading the book. It's as if for the first time they've understood what the Atonement really does for each of them.
