His Holy Name
Dallin H. Oaks
Paperback $14.95

The holy name of Jesus Christ is invoked daily in prayers, blessings, ordinances, and testimonies of members of the Church throughout the world. Apostles serve as special witnesses of the name of Christ in all the world. But what does it mean to be a witness not just of Christ, but also of His name? In His Holy Name, Elder Dallin H. Oaks explores the significance of the name of Jesus Christ. This book, the product of a decade of prayerful studying and pondering, provides a fascinating, powerful look at the holy nature of the Savior s name and its meaning in our worship and beliefs. Elder Oaks recounts the words of John: But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name. This beloved modern- day Apostle explains that, in this context, his name means His works and His plan of salvation, with all of its glorious provisions for the children of God.
