"An attempt to master this doctrine requires an immersion of all our senses, all our feelings, and all our intellect," Brother Callister writes.

It must be felt, not just 'figured; internalized, not just analyzed....The Atonementof Jesus Christ is the most supernal, mind-expanding, passionate doctrine this world or universe will ever know." With clarity, testimony, and understanding, The Infinite Atonement teaches us rich and wonderful truths about this "doctrine of doctrines."

“I'll never do it again,” we say — and then we do it. In a world full of challenges, temptations, and even addictions, it is easy to lose hope for ourselves and those we love.

Christ is not waiting at the finish line once we have done —all we can do.” So, if at first you don't succeed either, don't find excuses. Find the Savior and the blessings of His continuous Atonement.

This insightful book offers a careful, intelligent look at doubt—at some of its common sources, the challenges it presents, and the opportunities it may open up in a person’s quest for faith.
