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!
The Blueprint of Christ's Church by Tad R. Callister, Blog Tour
A strong testimony requires a solid foundation. This is especially true in our day, when we have so much access to information from so many sources, both reliable and spurious. With the numerous voices competing for our attention, how can we avoid being "carried about with every wind of doctrine" (Eph. 4:14)?
In The Blueprint's of Christ's Church, Tad R. Callister provides a thoughtful, systematic explanation of foundational gospel principles, tying them to Jesus Christ and demonstrating how the "blueprint" of the original Church of Jesus Christ matches the structure of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Seasoned Church members and new converts alike will benefit from this "refresher course." The carefully reasoned, scripture-based summaries of a variety of basic principles offer a great resource for parents, missionaries, and Church leaders and teachers.
The premise of this book is to put to the test that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the same church that Jesus Christ established when He lived on the earth. The author takes each aspect of Christ's church and through scripture explains how it is the same in the LDS church today. This is an extensive read (almost 400 pages) and is not one to be skimmed over or rushed through. However it is organized nicely into sections with questions and then answers/explanations. It would also make a great reference book as well for someone looking for answers to specific questions. Anyone whether a new or long-time member can enjoy this book.
