Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I love this book. The author does a great job of explaining the Latter-day Saint perspective on a very difficult doctrine: the grace of Jesus Christ. Many people in and out of the LDS Church misunderstand the doctrine regarding how we believe we attain exaltation. I have heard so many times that we "work" our way into Christ's kingdom and that is why we work so hard in our callings and give so much to our church. These are our efforts to get to heaven. This inadequate and inaccurate description lessens the role of Jesus Christ in our lives and forgets that we have all come short and therefore we all must rely wholly on the merits and mercy of the Savior, Jesus Christ. This book explains why members of the LDS faith so willingly give of their time and their means and helps us understand how to access the greatest power and the only true source of peace in this world: the grace of Jesus Christ.

Robert L. Millet is Richard L. Evans Professor of Religious Understanding at Brigham Young University. Although this book isn't an official Latter-day Saint publication, it's published by Deseret Book and approaches the subject from a Mormon perspective. However, the author has read widely and includes many references to non-LDS theologians, including C.S. Lewis and Karl Barth. "After all we can do" in the kicker to the title references 2 Nephi 25:23, but doesn't quite describe the LDS or any scriptural view of God's gracious work of redemption without a tad of explanation, including 2 Nephi 10:24 "after ye are reconciled unto God, that it is only in and through the grace of God that ye are saved." "All we humans can do" is "be reconciled unto God"--but even that reconciliation also is a gift of grace.

Disclaimer: including front matter, Grace Works is only 150 pages and is printed in a gracious size of graciously leaded type, so don't expect it to be completely comprehensive.

The book focuses around and keeps returning to the author's statement on page 2: "Because the Atonement is central, fundamental, and foundational, it provides meaning and purpose for every other doctrine and every covenant and ordinance. It is the lens through who we view every principle, precept, and practice in the Church." From explaining that Fall and Atonement are kind of like a "package deal," throughout the book Brother Millet provides clear explanations and relevant examples. On page 17 he lines out seven ways scripture uses the word "grace": God's favor or acceptance; God's blessing; an outpouring of God's Holy Spirit or of spiritual gifts; a calling to preach the gospel; blessings associated with a person's lineage; strength to overcome and endure; that which conveys salvation and wholeness...

grace is a subject that so many people talk about and discuss, yet in so many of their attempts to elucidate this wonderful principle, i find myself leaning forward and saying as they conclude their explanations, and? ... go on! they go so far and then stop. it is like drinking water in a dream that never quenches your thirst. robert millet, on the other hand, has a firm grasp of this edifying and uplifting principle that each of us should strive to seek after and embrace in our lives.

This is an excellent book that reminds readers of fundamental truths that we often overlook. While it is written with an LDS audience in mind, much of its truths are universal to a protestant Christian audience as well (although there may be some vocabulary usage that is distinct, and references to and/or quotes by LDS leaders). Great book.
