A book a day...keeps insanity away! I am an avid book reader. When I am not reading, I love to play the piano, sing, or shop until I drop! Reading has been a huge part of my life since I was young and my Mom introduced me to the public library! Since then I have not stopped reading! I hope you enjoy my reviews!
We are a covenant-making people, but do we fully appreciate the power of the promises contained in just the twelve short verses of the oath and covenant of the priesthood?
In Men of Covenant, companion to Men of Valor and Men of Influence, author Robert L. Millet invites us to explore such questions as these:
What are the terms and conditions of the oath and covenant of the priesthood?
What would my life be like if I were more focused on my covenants?
How could my more covenant-focused life affect my family and others for whom I have responsibility?
As we consider the promises Melchizedek Priesthood holders make to God and His irrevocable promise to faithful priesthood holders, we discover the glorious blessings He makes available to us all, both men and women.
Robert L. Millet has become a favorite LDS writer of mine. I love that he uses scripture and quotes from the prophets to explain the principles he is discussing. In every book I have read by him, especially this one, he makes it easier to understand gospel principles by breaking them down and referencing scripture. While Men of Covenant is more geared toward men, I felt like I was able to glean a lot of information from the book. I truly loved the beginning of the book when he explained all about covenants. At the end of each chapter he poses "Points to Ponder" so the reader can think back about what they have read and be able to internalize the information. This is a great book that you will learn from and leave you with a lot to ponder. Happy Reading!!!
