Sacramental Reflections by Truman G. Madsen, LDS Blog Tour
These devotional reflections from the heart of Truman Madsen can help bring you face to face with yourself as you prepare to meet Christ at the sacrament table each week. Each page explores a separate idea pertaining to the sacrament and gives insights into the events surrounding the Last Supper, the Atonement, and the Crucifixion.
There is a feast awaiting the honest guest who accepts the Lord's invitation to bring to the altar a "broken heart and a contrite spirit." Alma promises it will "begin to be delicious" (Alma 32:28) and that "ye shall feast upon this fruit even until ye are filled" (Alma 32:42). Brother Madsen helps us to access these blessings.
Find new meaning in the sacrament and new resolve as you reflect upon and participate in this sacred ordinance.
This book is really awesome because you don't have to read it in order and you don't have to read it all at once. It is broken up into sections like The Atonement, The Prayers. and Fasting. Within each section are different topics within that subject that can stand on their own, yet all tie together within that section. This book is unique in its format and I am a huge fan of it. I felt like I learned something from each and every page that I read. The research, the studying and the experiences of the author all make for a wonderful book on the sacrament. This is truly a great guide to understanding, internalizing and appreciating the beauty of the sacrament.
You can pick up your own copy via Deseret Book.
