I rely on the temple for insights into the true meaning of the scriptures. In The Bright and Morning Star, my good friend and fellow scripture student Breck England has done that for Revelation, clearing the path through John’s intricate visions, helping us to find and follow Christ. This book is a revelation!
–Taylor Halverson, director, Scripture Central
This book sets aside the fixation on when “I come quickly’ and redirects our focus on Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, and our Father’s eternal plan. I loved this book; I found it both engaging and revelatory and a new look at scripture of great importance today.
–Heidi Swinton, author of American Prophet: The Story of Joseph Smith
The Bright and Morning Star opens our eyes to the blessings of peace we can enjoy because of the temple despite the prophesied troubles of the world around us.
–Ardeth Kapp, former general president of the Young Women
Whether or not one agrees with every detail of Breck England’s interpretation, he has pointed us in the right direction by encouraging us to take the temple ordinances as a lamp to guide us as we explore Revelation’s rich treasures of truth. God invites us to come to the temple repeatedly not only because it is a place of peace and supernal service, but also because He wants us to make it a house of learning. The more we understand about the temple, the more we will understand Revelation, and vice versa. When opened to our minds and hearts with this key to understanding—to which England correctly points us—the book of Revelation, like Elijah’s miraculous cruse of oil, will prove an inexhaustible source of nourishment, providing hope and light during the dark days of mortality as we prepare for the advent of perfect light ahead.
