Continuous Atonementby Brad Wilcox
"I'll never do it again," we say - and then we do it. In a world full of challenges, temptations, and even addictions, it is easy to lose hope for ourselves and those we love. During times of discouragement, we must remember that the purpose of the Atonement of Jesus Christ is not just to cleanse and console, but also to transform - and that takes time. Christ is not waiting at the finish line once we have done -all we can do." He is with us every step of the way, and His Atonement will be available as long as the perfecting process takes - continually. This book offers valuable insights about God, Christ, and our relationship with them. Each chapter contains clear examples that will uplift and motivate. Profound doctrine is made accessible and difficult concepts are presented in such simple ways that over and over the reader will say, "I've never thought of it like that before." That kind of change of belief will help bring about a change of behavior. Most members of the Church acknowledge that perfection is a long-term process, but overlook the continuous nature of Christ's Atonement that makes that process possible. Peace is found not by giving up or erasing the need to change, but by turning to the One who makes change possible and realizing that we get lots of chances to start again. So, if at first you don't succeed either, don't find excuses. Find the Savior and the blessings of His continuous Atonement.

The Continuous Atonement written by Brad Wilcox is a truly inspiring book about the Savior's atonement. Being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints all my life, I have learned many doctrines about what the atonement will do for me. However, this book explains the simple and pure doctrines that I grew up learning and Brad Wilcox explains the doctrines in greater details. For example, I have heard many times that in this life if you do your best then Christ will make up the difference. Brad Wilcox has an interesting quote he says, "Christ doesn't just make up the difference. He makes all the difference." This book is truly inspirational and every time that you start to read this book you feel the prompting of the spirit bearing witness to you that the savior loves you and the all your sins can be forgiven through the Savior's Atonement. Each chapter gives you new insights on the Atonement. My favorite chapter is entitled who needs a savior. This chapter goes into great detail of why each and every one of us on the earth needs the help of the saviors Atonement. This chapter also has an incredible powerful example of how the Savior's Atonement can work in our lives. To summarize this experience, a part member family does all they can to get the father to join the church. However, the stubborn man will not join until he learns of the brutal murder of his son. The man is so angered by the death of his son his searches for those responsible for his son's death. After he could not find those that ended his son's life prematurely, he taught about how he would love to see his son again. To make a long story short, through the power of the Atonement this man forgave those that killed his son, and he joined the church and was sealed to his family for time and all eternity. I would recommend this book to anyone that would like to strengthen his or her testimony in the Atonement or even gain a greater appreciation for the Savior's sacrifice. This book will leave you feeling excellent every time you read it.
I am about half way through the book. So far it has been really amazing. It has given me some great insights about the atonement of Christ that have helped me understand it better. A lot of things that were unclear about the atonement have become clearer. I love the spirit that this book brings as I read it. I highly recommend it. It is very simple and easy to understand. That is how the gospel is supposed to be, right?
