The Holy Ghost gives knowledge, wisdom, understanding, and enlightenment, but how do we know when we have been taught by the Spirit? If we desire to be taught—and to teach—by the Spirit, what is our responsibility?
Teaching and learning can take place in a variety of settings. It might occur in a Church meeting or as we participate in a gospel lesson or in a family home evening. Often it is a personal experience that occurs outside formal instructional settings in the private, brief teaching moments of life. In this insightful companion volume to Hearing the Voice of the Lord, bestselling author Gerald N. Lund helps readers understand how the Spirit can increase our abilities as both teachers and learners.
Not quite a review yet because I’m not done reading this book. This is not a one sitting read for me. Unlike his fiction titles this book is deep and meaty and filled with doctrine. It is not a book that I can devour but rather one that I take small helpings of then take the time needed to digest. It is 18 chapters long but for me just a one chapter per sitting read so it is going to take me a while to get through it. It is in my book bag that I take with when I volunteer as a receptionist at the temple and I read one chapter each time I go. So I plan to continue reading it but it might be summer before I finish.
