Product Description

In his youth, Truman Madsen watched his grandparents take their large family to the temple almost every week. Decades later, a friend said, "Your spiritual life began with the temple and everything since has flowed from that." The messages in this book attest to his love of temples.

The author of many bestselling books and CDs (including Joseph Smith the Prophet), Brother Madsen teaches how we can gain access to the light and truth offered in the temple. He discusses the relationship of the temple to the Atonement, Joseph Smith's contribution to our understanding of temples, and how the scriptures and the temple illuminate each other. This is a powerful book on a crucial topic by one of the greatest teachers and scholars of our time.

I like many of Truman Madsen's other works, but this one... I didn't really learn much about the temple from it. It just didn't click with me like some of his other talks, videos, and books. No "Aha!" moments or anything. I would suggest some of his other works instead of this one.

I wanted to like this book. I was hoping it would provide insights. Alas, I found the number of gratuitous personal references distracting, the folksy tone irritating and the lack of any structure or orderly presentation difficult to follow. Disappointing.
