  • Examines the fulfillment of the Atonement in Christ's mortal life and sacrifice.

This is a very fine work on Jesus Christ's Atonement! Jesus Christ's Atonement is much greater and larger and far-reaching than I had ever considered.

I loved the insights and added knowledge I gained from reading this book. I have marked this book up and dog-eared almost every page. Every page I found myself pondering a deeper meaning of things I thought I knew well, I am grateful for a book that teaches me there is so much more to the gospel
