About the book: We are a covenant-making people, but do we fully appreciate the power of the promises contained in just the twelve short verses of the oath and covenant of the priesthood?
In Men of Covenant, companion to Men of Valor and Men of Influence, author Robert L. Millet invites us to explore such questions as these:
What are the terms and conditions of the oath and covenant of the priesthood?
What would my life be like if I were more focused on my covenants?
How could my more covenant-focused life affect my family and others for whom I have responsibility?
As we consider the promises Melchizedek Priesthood holders make to God and His irrevocable promise to faithful priesthood holders, we discover the glorious blessings He makes available to us all, both men and women.
My review: This book is a truly great resource for anyone trying to understand the priesthood and the covenants involved. I liked the way that Robert L Millett put this book together. He's written each chapter to tell us both what we promise to Heavenly Father and what He promises to us. I loved that at the end of each chapter there is a list of points to ponder. Each of them is a question to get the reader thinking about the things discussed in the chapter, and to allow them the chance to get their own testimony about the things covered in the chapter through the Holy Ghost. This book is important for all of us, both men and women to read and ponder.
I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
