If this interests you, here are a few more reasons why you might want to add “Putting Christ” to your reading list.
A roadmap for your journey to spiritual rebirth
Putting Christ is more than just a religious feel-good book – it’s designed to help you change your life by bringing you to truly know the Saviour. Several reviewers reaffirmed that the book doesn’t just teach you about Christ; it helps you really get to know him personally. Bishop highlights this new reality and perfect knowing by sharing the stories of nine people who are born of God in our modern day. Chapter 8 alone highlights the experiences of seven of them.
According to Bishop, these stories of knowing God through spiritual rebirth, of being “born of the spirit”, are “on par with many who entered God’s presence through near-death experience.” In either scenario, the reality of God will have been obtained with perfect knowledge and certainty, and people’s hearts will thus have been changed forever. Reading these accounts—together with the relevant doctrine of Christ that will highlight the steps to obtaining such an indescribable reality—will help the reader understand what this experience might feel and be to themselves by obeying this very doctrine.
What readers say about the book
The consensus among readers is that diligent study of this book can lead to profound change of heart and 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 prophet Nephi in “The Book of Mormon” calls this level of knowledge “perfect clarity.”
“This doctrine-filled, scripture-backed, Christ-focused content is not the kind of book you read quickly,” writes an 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 me so deeply that I almost cry for answers direct. This book is a huge blessing!”
Another reviewer wrote, “I found a book that talks [to] what I was looking for for a long time. It’s moving and heartbreaking. I found understanding where I am on the path and woke up in my terrible situation. Now is the time to gird up my loins by acting with patience and diligence in seeking the only one who can save my miserable soul.”
