I just finished re-reading “The Infinite Atonement” by Tad R. Callister.
Quick Take: This book, and “Jesus the Christ” by James E. Talmage, should be considered scripture when it comes to understanding Jesus Christ and his Atonement.
As a full-time missionary (about a thousand years ago), I read “Jesus the Christ.” It substantially changed the way I see and understand Jesus Christ. “The Infinite Atonement” did this for me again.
This is my 2nd time through this book, and I enjoyed it even more. Elder Callister thoroughly covers many aspects of the Atonement in an understandable and approachable way. It is by no means a “light” read, but it is also not an academic tome. I believe this will appeal to those on both ends of the gospel knowledge scale.
I appreciate that the author went into comprehensive detail. He covers not just the Atonement but also many doctrines that link to this pivotal event. The best approach is to read it in small chunks and then take time to think about the principles.
I can unequivocally say this book has strengthened both my knowledge and testimony of Jesus Christ. I cannot recommend it loudly enough.
