When we face some of life's tough choices, how can we know which way to go?
How can we find comfort in the many heartaches of life?
What can we do to build our testimonies, to grow closer to the Lord, to strengthen our families?
If only we each had a personal Liahona, showing us the way to go through the wilderness of our lives.
In this practical and inspiring book, Elder Gene R. Cook of the First Quorum of the Seventy shows us that we do have such a Liahona—the scriptures. They will guide us in many ways, helping us through life's struggles and dilemmas. They will lift us when we are in need of reassurance and comfort. They will help us improve and strengthen our relationship with the Lord, as well as with our families. And, if we will read the scriptures as a family, they will help smooth over rough places in our family life and increase the feeling of unity and love in our home.
But Elder Cook does not stop at telling us the great blessings we will receive from searching the scriptures. He also helps us see how to find our way past the obstacles that get in the way of our reading regularly, both privately and as families. He gives many helpful suggestions about how to most effectively use these valuable tools the Lord has given us. He suggests ways we can understand the meaning of the scriptures for our own lives.
Adapted and expanded from the audio cassette tapes on the same subject, Searching the Scriptures includes inspiring stories of people whose lives were blessed and changed as they began to consistently read the scriptures. And it shares many testimonies of families who have struggled to read together—and who tell of the blessings they received as they finally succeeded.
This is one of the best books ever. It has helped to understand the importance of the scriptures, why god gave them to us, and everything people went through to bring this book back to us in these latter days. It's also teaches you how to study them, and to gain as much knowledge as possible from them. Hi highly recommend this book to anyone. I know it has changed the way i view the scriptures forever.
I had become in active in the church for some time and had a hard time really grasping the scriptures when I decided to get my life back on track. I felt very behind my peers as far as my knowledge of the scriptures and was very overwhelmed with the task of learning all I wanted to know. This book was so helpful in giving me a solid foundation on how to successfully search the scriptures from the basics to the in-depth. A definent must read for those at any level.
A great scripture companion.
