Over 2000 years ago, Lehi had a dream, a dream that would relate so well to our time that we could then use it to apply to the world in which we live. This book by John Bytheway, one of the best author's and speakers for teens, tells us that story. It's written in a way that will speak specifically to teens about life and the world around them. It will teach them to always want to clutch tightly to the Iron Rod that Lehi saw, and to be able to avoid listening to the mocking voices of those hanging out in the great and spacious building, pointing the finger of scorn.
I've read Lehi's dream from the 8th chapter of 1st Nephi in the Book of Mormon countless times. But I've never thought about the story the way that this book helped me to think of it before. I love the way that John Bytheway is able to teach the things that he has learned from the scriptures in a way that is quick, easy and fun to read. It's easy to see why he's one of the most popular speakers and teachers of the youth. It's almost impossible not to learn something from him. I loved this book, I'm looking forward to reading more of his books teaching about scripture stories!
I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
