Living in the Millennium by Robert L. Millet {Written by Tiffany}

The Savior taught through the Prophet Joseph Smith that the time will come when "he that liveth in righteousness shall be changed in the twinkling of an eye, and the earth shall pass away so as by fire" (Doctrine and Covenants 43:32). 

What do we know about that day when Jesus Christ will come in glory to cleanse the earth? And what will life be like after He comes to reign? 

In Living in the Millennium, the companion volume to Living in the Eleventh Hour, author Robert L. Millet opens the doors wide to show us what life will be like during and after the Millennium. Relying on the words of ancient and modern prophets, he shares what has been revealed about Christ's preliminary appearances, His return in majesty and power, and His millennial reign—a thousand years of goodness and peace. 

Filled with insights, this timely book helps us to understand more fully such eternal doctrines as the resurrection of the just and the unjust, the Judgment, and the many mansions of glory.
Living in the Millennium inspires us to live today as if the Savior were coming tomorrow.

In my opinion:
I reviewed Living in the Millennium by Robert L. Millet. This was a wonderful sequel to Living in the Eleventh Hour.  In the first book, it discussed many of the signs of the times and events leading up to the Second Coming. In this book, the author educated readers of Christ’s comings to selected groups, the millennium, and resurrection/day of judgment.  My favorite part about this book was that it gave me hope! Hope that despite my imperfections, there is a way to attaining Eternal Life. Hope that gaining salvation and attaining perfection are merely processes in this life and beyond death. One of my favorite quotes in this book was by Bruce R. McConkie, “We do not work out our salvation in a moment; it doesn’t come to us in an instant, suddenly. Gaining salvation is a process.”  We don’t have to feel like we need to be perfect right now. We can take small steps towards being like Christ. The author also did a great job in explaining the Millennium and what will be happening at that time. It excites me to think of the time when the Savior will be in our midst, and things will be very different on this earth with the absence of Satan’s influence. I recommend this book to those who would like to read about what life will be like during and after the Millennium. And to those who want to more fully understand the peace that will come to those who are righteous and trying their best to endure to the end.  This book was very interesting and enjoyable to read.
