The Continuous Atonement for teens by Brad Wilcox, LDS Blog Tour

Book Summary:

Brad Wilcox's The Continuous Atonement is a landmark work that helps to clarify what the Atonement is—and what it isn't. It corrects misperceptions and offers hope to those who struggle again and again.
This teen adaptation will help teenagers better understand and apply the Atonement in their lives and help them teach the nuances of the Atonement to others, whether on a mission, at home, or with friends. As they better understand and apply the Atonement, its transforming power will have a lasting effect in their lives.
Each chapter opens with a teen-appropriate question and includes subheadings to clarify content, new stories relevant to teens, and a Prepare to Teach section to help readers internalize and share what they're learning. This shorter edition will be printed in paperback, perfect for teens to carry with them through their busy days.

My Review:

I love the way that Brad Wilcox writes books! He speaks plainly so it is easy to understand the message that he is conveying. This book is set up wonderfully! Each chapter begins with a question and then he explains the concept with quotes, stories of real people and scriptures. He really engages the reader and makes them feel like he is just talking to them in person. At the end of each chapter there are suggestions on how to share what you have learned. I think my favorite part of this book is the hope and light you feel from reading it. While reading it, I would feel the need to share parts out loud to my family because they were so great and spot on with the way Wilcox relayed the message. I love this book and think anyone, teen or otherwise, will find it helpful!

You can pick up your own copy via Deseret Book.

Happy Reading!!!
