Book Description Deseret Book Company 0, Salt Lake City, UT. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 1590386094 Brand New! ; In Christ and the New Covenant, Elder Jeffrey R. Holland, a member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, features the role of Jesus Christ as "the principal and commanding figure" in the Book of Mormon, from the first chapter to the last. Brother Holland's comprehensive study documents why this ancient Nephite record is truly "another testament of Jesus Christ." The author takes his title from another book of modern scripture in which the Lord called upon "the whole church ?to? remember the new covenant, even the Book of Mormon" (D&C 84: 55, 57). In his warm and thoughtful style, Elder Holland writes, "The Book of Mormon is the sacred expression of Christ's full and final covenant with mankind. It is a new covenant, a new testament from the New World to the entire world. More than any other book it has taught me to love the Lord Jesus Christ and to consider the full wonder and grandeur, the eternally resonating power of the atoning sacrifice he made for us." ; 6" x 9".
