Product Description

"Do you really believe you can earn your way to heaven?" Brad Wilcox answers, "Absolutely not! We are not paying our way into heaven. We are preparing for it."

Through simple yet powerful analogies and moving personal experiences, Brother Wilcox reminds us that the miracle of the Atonement is that not only can we be cleansed and consoled, but we can be transformed. Christ chose to become like us so that, through His grace, we can choose to become like Him. It's a lofty goal and a long and difficult process. When we get discouraged, it is easy to feel like giving up. But we can find renewed motivation when we feel God's love and power. Keep trying. Keep practicing. It will be worth it—not because we are earning a treasure in heaven, but because we are learning to treasure heavenly things.

In a refreshing and simple way, Bro. Wilcox draws the connection between the Atonement, how we live our life, and the eternal results. Great for new converts as well as life-long members. Have bought several copies to give away.
