"WITH HEALING IN HIS WINGS," edited by Camille Fronk Olson and Thomas A. Wayment, BYU Religious Studies Center and Deseret Book, $17.99, 153 pages (nf)

Many have sought answers to questions regarding the life and ministry of Jesus Christ, the Atonement, Crucifixion and Resurrection, especially around the Easter season. "With Healing in His Wings" is a compliation of essays where the contributors extend this invitiation: "allow Christ to heal and lift (you) up."

These six essays were present at the annual Brigham Young University Easter conferences in 2012 and 2013 and include the following: "Resurrection: A Matter of Surpassing Wonder," by Elder Gary J. Coleman; "Easter, the Lord’s Day," by Elder John M. Madsen; "Christ’s Crucifixion: Reclamation of the Cross," by Gaye Strathearn; "The Savior’s Ministry to the Spirit World," by Andrew C. Skinner; "A Perfect Balance of Justice and Mercy," by Brent L. Top; and "May Christ Lift Thee Up," by Brad Wilcox.

Edited by Camille Fronk Olson and Thomas A. Wayment, each article presents insights and testimony as to what the Savior desires to provide and bless each of God’s children with, whether in mortality or beyond. The essayists provided testimony, scriptural knowledge from both the Bible and the Book of Mormon, and personal experience and example to demonstrate the love of the Savior and how he is continually fulfilling (and has already fulfilled) his mission and purpose, especially the mission of healing.

Whether seeking comfort of the Savior during times of trial, oppression and great need, the truths and principles included in these essays "With Healing in His Wings" can help provide peace, assurances and knowledge for those seeking after truth.
