The second of three volumes on the New Testament discusses the final year of the Savior's ministry, his prophecies of the last days and the second coming, the Last Supper, and on through his 40-day ministry among the Apostles, and ascension into heaven. The third volume covers most of the Book of Acts, the New Testament epistles, and the Book of Revelation.
Through drawing upon both traditional Christian and Latter-day Saint documents, Millet seeks to address a very current and pressing issue: Are Latter-day Mormons Christian, or do they, as some contend, worship a different Jesus?
On the hottest day of summer in 1934, Briony Tallis sees her older sister Cecilia strip off and plunge into the fountain in the garden of their country house. Watching her is her childhood friend, Robbie Turner. By the end of that day, the lives of all three will have changed for ever: Robbie and Cecilia will have crossed an unimagined boundary, and Briony will have committed a crime for which she will spend the rest of her life trying to atone.

It could well be that the Savior chose to teach principles relating to His infinite Atonement through the carefully cloaked statements contained in these seemingly simple stories of everyday life. This gospel study is the first of its kind to focus attention wholly on the Atonement as the centerpiece of Christ's parables. Join six celebrated LDS scholars in an in-depth examination of specific parables of the Master that teach us directly about the Atonement. Every page of this inspiring book will illuminate aspects of the Lord's ultimate act of redemption and will help the reader better understand the mercy, justice, depth, and power of His infinite sacrifice for all humankind. Come to understand the parables of redemption through this detailed study of six stories from the New Testament. Authors C. Robert Line, Ronald E. Bartholomew, R. Scott Burton, Robert England Lee, Craig Frogley, and Andrew C. Skinner are all renowned scholars and theologians. Most have worked for the Church Educational System or Institute of Religion and have been published previously. Brother Skinner is currently the executive director of the Neal A. Maxwell Institute for Religious Scholarship.
The Book of Alma.This volume is the second of three on the Book of Mormon. It covers the last chapters of Mosiah and all of the book of Alma. It begins with the story of the conversion of Alma the Younger. We learn of the beginning of the reign of the judges. Then we follow the missionary efforts of Alma and Amulek in the land of Zarahemla, followed by the missions of the sons of Mosiah to the Lamanites in the Land of Nephi. We follow the fate of the Anti-Nephi-Lehies. We read Alma?s letters to his sons, including an in-depth discussion of the Great Plan of Happiness. Then we finish with the stories of Captain Moroni and Helaman?s stripling warriors. In all, it covers 67 years of Nephite history from 130 to 63 BC when the book of Helaman began. The cover features a beautiful painting of ?The Title of Liberty,? by Joseph Brickey.
