THE BLUEPRINT OF CHRIST'S CHURCH by Tad R. Callister


ABOUT THE BOOK

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.

REVIEW

In The Blueprint of Christ's Church, the reader is presented with an incredibly readable account of Christ's church, the apostasy, and the restoration of the gospel and Christ's church known today as The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.  I've never read a clearer presentation of the foundational principles of the church and the main doctrines associated with it.  The organization and design of the book are fabulous and help the reader find the parts they are most interested in reading (although I recommend you read the whole thing).  There is a note from the author at the end of the book addressed specifically to readers who are not members of the LDS Church.  A truly wonderful book that I heartily loved reading.  The writing is so easy to follow and the quotes and scriptures used add to the reader's understanding of the points the author is trying to make.
