If this appeals to you, here are a few other reasons why you might want to add “Putting on Christ” to your reading list.
A roadmap for your journey to spiritual rebirth
“Putting on Christ” is more than just a feel-good religious book – it is designed to help you change your life by bringing you to truly know the Savior. Several reviewers have confirmed that the book not only teaches you about Christ; it helps you to really get to know him personally. Bishop points to this new reality and perfect knowledge by sharing the stories of nine people who have been born of God in our last or modern times. Chapter 8 alone highlights the experiences of seven of them.
According to Bishop, these stories of getting to know God through spiritual rebirth are being “born of the Spirit,” “on a par with many who have come into the presence of God through a near-death experience.” In both scenarios, the reality of God will be achieved with perfect knowledge and security, and the hearts of the people will be changed forever. Reading these stories – along with the relevant doctrine of Christ, which will highlight the steps to achieve such an indescribable reality – will help the reader understand how that experience can feel and be for themselves through obedience to this very doctrine.
What readers say about the book
Consensus among readers is that a diligent study of this book can lead to a profound change of heart and a perfect experiential knowledge of the reality and divinity of the living Christ and his (conditional) promise to us personally and individually of eternal life. . The Book of Mormon prophet Nephi refers to this level of knowledge as a “perfect brightness.”
“This doctrinal, scriptural-based focus on Christ material is not the kind of book you read quickly,” writes one Amazon reviewer. “It takes study, reflection, and digestion of these truths. It takes effort on our part to recognize where we are on this journey. Often the author shares something that touches my heart so strongly that I almost cry from having it so directly. Answer. This book is a huge blessing! “
Another reviewer wrote: “I have found a book that speaks (to) what I have longed to find. It is soul-stirring and heartbreaking. I have found an understanding of where I am on the road and I have woken up to my terrible situation Now is the time to stretch out my loins and act with patience and diligence and seek the only one who can save my miserable soul. “
