Thanks for posting some Nibley! I *really* miss having time to read more of him. I appreciate you sharing special points of interest.

Are you aware of Tad Callister's seminal book on the Atonement called "The Infinite Atonement". It is truly beyond words.

In fact, I have started a FB group called "Infinite Atonement" to discuss the chapters.

Cheers

Actually, yes. I finished it finally this year.

My assessment isn't quite as beyond words. There are a lot of really good points, but he also makes some serious leaps of logic. You can nearly always identify them because he starts the sentence by saying "Certainly...." or "Surely...." when his point is neither certain nor sure. Other than that, it was quite faith promoting.
