One of the most significant teachings within The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is that mortals are capable of becoming holy and, in time, like our beloved Savior. Whole in Christ, from renowned author and gospel scholar Robert L. Millet, encourages readers to encounter Jesus Christ daily, to hear Him, and to remain close to Him, always.
None of us can live flawless lives, but we can progress on our pathway to perfection, or wholeness. Becoming a Christian is a work in progress. We will make our way up the holy mount of wholeness line upon line, precept upon precept, here a little and there a little. And the more we reflect on and trust in our Divine Redeemer, the more often He will lighten our heavy burdens and comfort our troubled hearts.
This is a book about becoming better—much better—than we are. Though we may stumble at times, we can center our lives on the Son of God, stay on the gospel path, increase our service and love for one another, and find comfort and sanctification that comes from the pure love of Christ. This book illustrates how we can begin to emulate the Savior in mortality and how, through the power of His Holy Spirit, the Lord can help us develop a Christian character, thereby preparing us to dwell happily with Him forever.
