The Savior's Symbols

Book Details:
Release Date: February 2013
Publisher: Cedar Fort, Inc.
Genre: Spiritual
Book Description:
Often we are taught familiar stories from the life of the Master without fully exploring the profoundly beneficial insights of his symbolic imagery. It was Heavenly Father who directed his Son to teach us his chosen symbols with an invitation to ponder their significance.

The Saviors Symbols examines how and when the Lord introduced his chosen symbols. It frames each teaching opportunity, the various people and motivations involved, and suggests to whom his symbolic message was directed. Although each circumstance and symbol varies, Christ’s focus is ever the same; claiming his Father’s children and blessing all through his service and sacrifice.
The Savior’s Symbols invites you to ponder anew the life, ministry, and sacred mission of Jesus Christ.

My Review:
Seven Affirmations from the Life of the Master~~What a beautiful book to read right before the coming of Easter!
I loved in the preface how the author wrote:
"This work invites you to think expansively and to feel differently about Christ.
His symbols inspire feelings and insights as you study his words.
While you ponder the circumstances and messages of each symbol, you will,
if you choose, come to know Him better."
Each chapter is a different symbol: Wine, Water, Bread, Stone, Oil, The Shepherd and the Lamb, Alpha and Omega;

Scriptural stories, and hymn text are sprinkled throughout to illustrate each symbolism.

I also loved this thought that "our lives can also become symbols of the Savior as we desire, seek, receive, act, and radiate the Light and Love of Christ daily in our lives."

Give yourself a gift this Easter to study from the pages of this beautiful book :)

Included in the book are beautiful paintings by Jeffrey Hein, Michael Malm, and Nathan Pinnock
