Book Review: Understanding your Endowment

Understanding Your Endowment blog tour 
About the book:
For many members of the church, the temple endowment remains something of a mystery. Yet when understood, the temple can function in our lives as a modern day Liahona, giving us our bearings in our mortal journey back to our Father. “Understanding Your Endowment” is packed with insights and keys, which can help you unlock the temple’s purpose and meaning in your life. It will help you understand the blessings the Lord offers His children through His temples and will enrich your personal temple worship.
“Understanding Your Endowment” examines topics such as covenant ceremonies, the initiatory ordinances, the endowment, and temple sealings in a manner that is plain and easy to understand while still respecting their sacred and confidential nature. Whether you are preparing to enter the temple for the first time or already attend regularly, your temple worship will be enhanced by reading this book.

About the author:
Cory B. Jensen graduated with honors from Brigham Young University with a Masters of Business Administration degree. He currently serves as an ordinance worker in the Mount Timpanogos Temple. He and his wife, Traci, are the parents of four children. Cory grew up in the shadow of the Logan temple and developed a love for the temple early in life.  He wants most of all to be a faithful disciple of Christ and a loving husband, father, grandfather, son and brother.  He often falls short but keeps trying.  He hopes that the message of this book will enrich your temple experience and bless your life.  He also really hopes you will judge it based upon its message and not by the cover or who wrote it.  It’s the message that matters.

From Reidhead Randomness:

Understanding your Endowment, written for believing Latter Day Saints, helps increase your knowledge and understanding of the endowment.  A detailed description of covenants of old, what they mean, and all the symbolism is a very informative start to get you hooked on the book.  Each chapter is filled with a wealth of information to deepen your understanding and give you new insights!  It is an especially great book for people going to the temple for the first time, as well as temple veterans.

I received a copy of this book to review, however all opinions expressed are my own.
