In his earthly ministry, Jesus preformed many miracles. In particular, he healed numerous diseased and disabled bodies. But perhaps his greatest miracle was the healing of people's souls â the forgiveness of sin. Jesus still offers that miracle today, and on the same terms as formerly: sincere repentance. This book is a penetrating explanation of repentance and forgiveness that is illuminated with a bright hope for those who are searching for peace and security. It is a landmark work that has spoken with authority and insight for thirty-five years, bringing to bear President Kimball's rich experience and the inspiration of his calling. Elder Richard G. Scott, in his October 2000 conference address suggests reading the last two chapters first.

The first half of the book is amazing. Better than five stars. I'd heard people say that the beginning is really depressing, but I didn't feel that way about it. For me, the beginning was the best. It is a little harsh at times and he doesn't mince words about what is sin and the need for the Atonement, but it really struck a chord with me and I definitely learned a lot. Incredible book.
However, the second half dragged a bit for me. It's still got a lot of good doctrine in it, but there are a lot of times that I didn't understand the organization to the material he presented and it felt like he repeated himself an awful lot. It's not so much that it was slow or bad, just a little long. And there are a few times that he would state something as if it were fact, but I don't know that I agreed with his opinion. That might sound harsh, but I feel like though this is a book about forgiveness, President Kimball himself had some pretty unforgiving opinions.
This is definitely one I would suggest to others. It is a must read, if you are looking to understand the Atonement better. The beginning especially had a lot of insight into the Atonement and sin that was exceptionally powerful and helped me understand it better, but I wished that the book had been a little shorter, because there were parts that just dragged. The first half to three-quarters of the book is covered in highlights as I spent a ton of time taking notes, but that petered out significantly as the book moved closer to the end.
