With Easter approaching, it's a great time to focus our studies on Christ and His Atonement. Here are 10 powerful books that will help you come closer to Christ every day of the year.
by Tad R. Callister
With The Infinite Atonement, Brother Tad R. Callister offers us what may be the most comprehensive, yet understandable, treatment of the Atonement in our day. He thoughtfully probes the infinite scope of this "great and last sacrifice," describing its power and breadth and explaining how it redeems us all.
by David A. Bednar
How does the Lord affirm the worth of every individual? He ministers to His children one by one. In his compelling book, One by One, Elder David A. Bednar shows this pattern in action and teaches how we can draw closer to Jesus Christ by serving as He serves.
by Robert L. Millet
In The Atoning One, acclaimed author and experienced educator Robert L. Millet describes the mystery and majesty of who Jesus Christ is, His singular saving role in the plan of salvation, how the Father and the Holy Ghost are inextricably linked with Christ in the redemption of humankind, and how members of the Church can come to comprehend and rely upon divine grace.
by Fiona Givens and Terryl Givens
In a world increasingly prone to doubt, a foundation in Christ is the only sure basis of a durable discipleship. Christ does not rescue us from a condition of original sin or depravity. Rather, He is primarily a Healer of the wounds incident to a long-planned sojourn, one intended to immerse us in the trials, pains, and soul-stretching of this mortal schoolroom. He is, in fact, The Christ Who Heals.
by Brad Wilcox
In addition to using Paul's teachings in the Bible, Brother Wilcox draws from the scriptures of the Restoration, the teachings of modern prophets, and sacred hymns to explain complex doctrines in simple and memorable ways. He teaches how through the Holy Ghost—the messenger of grace—God can strengthen and save but also transform us.
by Charles L. Swift
This new volume is a compilation of inspiring presentations given at BYU's annual Easter Conference (2018 and 2019), a popular tradition at the university. Well-known speakers discuss such essential concepts as teaching about life in Christ, the role of the Savior in our lives, His life and mission, the power of Christ's Atonement, and how to help those with doubts. This volume includes talks given by Elder Bruce C. Hafen, Susan W. Tanner, Richard Lyman Bushman, Thomas A. Wayment, Barbara Morgan Gardner, and Anthony R. Sweat.
by Stephen R. Christiansen
Come to more fully understand the Savior’s final week, His ultimate sacrifice, and His role in your life as you discover the eternal implications of what occurred from Palm Sunday to Easter Sunday. Far more than a simple chronological account, this volume inspires thoughtful study, emotional connection, and personal revelation. With chapters designed to be read during each day of Holy Week, it gives readers the unique opportunity to delve into Christ’s final acts and contemplate compelling daily questions.
by Brad Wilcox
This book offers valuable insights about God, Christ, and our relationship with them. Most members of the Church acknowledge that perfection is a long-term process, but overlook the continuous nature of Christ's Atonement that makes that process possible. Peace is found not by giving up or erasing the need to change, but by turning to the One who makes change possible and realizing that we get lots of chances to start again.
by Emily Belle Freeman
Beloved writer and speaker Emily Freeman seeks to help each of us find the peace that comes through the Savior. Combining her two best-selling books, Emily Freeman first invites us on a 21-day journey toward a closer relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ, then outlines a 12-month path of discipleship divided into individual areas of focus, each containing invitations for personal growth, inspired counsel from prophets and apostles, and the scriptures to help us focus our efforts.
by Sheri Dew
In Amazed by Grace, Sheri Dew discusses each of those important questions, exploring a topic that she describes as being central to the Atonement of Jesus Christ. As we come to more fully understand the majestic doctrine of grace, our faith will increase. We will see how the Savior keeps His promise to make weak things strong. And we will believe the truth that "His Atonement makes available all of the power, peace, light, and strength that we need to deal with life's challenges."
