In his decades as a teacher and an Apostle of the Lord Jesus Christ, Elder Jeffrey R. Holland has often shared remarkable insights gleaned from his study of the New Testament. His newest book, Our Day Star Rising, compiles these insights: those about the history and context of the New Testament as well as teachings from the New Testament, wherein he uses its verses to cast new light on various doctrinal themes.
To start our new year off with a Christ-centered focus and to enhance our personal understanding of the New Testament for this year’s Come, Follow Me studies, the LDS Living Book Club will be reading and studying Our Day Star Rising by Elder Jeffrey R. Holland together.
Our lives will have difficult periods, which may go on for days, months, or even years. But in all of it, somehow, not only when He comes again but also during the anticipation of His coming, we can rest assured that His light will guide us unfailingly through. This book reminds us of the promise that, if we wait for it and watch for it and want it badly enough, our Day Star will most certainly arise in our hearts.
