Blog Tour - The Blueprint of Christ's Church

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.

My review: I am amazed by how much I actually am enjoying reading this book! This book is non-fiction, but the way that Brother Callister writes, it doesn't seem that way. I love the way that he talks about when he and his family were building a house at the beginning, personal stories make books more personal to the people that are reading them. He is talking about the similarity to building a house with a blueprint and the way that the Bible really is the blueprint for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day saints. The way he writes makes the subject easy to understand as well. I love that there are color illustrations in this book, they're all blue, but when you are reading a subject like this every little bit helps. This book is an awesome reference for those of us in the LDS Church and an amazing way for those who are not members to understand just what we believe and why. 

I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

About the author: Tad R. Callister was serving in the Presidency of the Seventy and as a member of the Second Quorum of the Seventy when he was called as Sunday School general president in April 2014. Brother Callister received a BS in accounting from Brigham Young University, a JD from the University of California-Los Angeles, and an MS in tax law from New York University Law School. He spent most of his professional career practicing tax law. He is the author of the best-selling books The Infinite Atonement and The Inevitable Apostasy. He and his wife, Kathryn Louise Saporiti, are the parents of six children.
