Product Description

Many suppose agency to be the God-given right to choose between good and evil. Were this the case, it could be argued that God gave us the right to do evil. This simply is not so. By way of analogy, our nation was formed to insure to its citizens the freedom of choice, but no one supposed that this granted anyone the right to disobey its laws. Similarly, agency does not grant us the rights to disobey the laws of God. What it gives us is power to change the world for good. This insightful book helps us understand the principle of agency and its implications for our lives here and in eternity.

One of the most enlightening books I have ever read. Straight forward, easy to read, and hard to put down.
