I only rate it a little low because it was a little difficult for me to get through.
Elder Maxwell's knowledge and understanding far surpass mine so I had a hard time understanding everything he wrote without really studying it.
I recommend this for 12 and up (if they can understand it).
It is doubtful I will ever rate one of Maxwell's works less than 5 stars.
I can't even describe what it is about the way unique he writes that I'm drawn to.
I learn so much each and every time I read something he authored.
This one had quick snipets of doctrine, rather than lengthy sermons, which I liked, because it was more quickly digested, but disliked, because I wanted more explantation at the conclusion of each chapter.
This was the second to last book Elder Maxwell wrote before his death.
The book is superb and a great read from front to back, but also a great reference as each chapter is his thoughts on sacred and important topics to every sincere disciple.


Elder Neal A.
Maxwell has that unique ability to take any topic and enrich it with scripture and words that are poetic in their delivery.
The layout of this book felt almost like one of those daily devotional quote bookswhich meant I flew through it pretty quickly.
It is a compilation of short (37 paragraph) messages on a variety of gospel topics.
And of course I enjoyed it, because it's Elder Maxwell.
A collection of short thoughts by the author.
I have been reading this for awhile since I can just grab it when I have a few minutes to spare and it works perfectly that way.

Love the thoughts contained.

Let me feel a quick pick me up when needed on so many topics.
Enjoy the short chapters of wisdom.
Something to read through slowly.
I love Elder Maxwell and his eloquence.
He left me hanging on a few of his ideas.
Maybe that was his point though.
I love reading the words of Elder Neal A.
Maxwell.
His words often paint a picture and help me to think about something in a way I haven't before.
This book is full of short quotes on various topics, mostly relating to discipleship and being humble enough to change.


Here are a few of my favorite quotes from the book:

"To Colleen Fern Hinckley Maxwell for her constant illumination, which has inspired me for well over half a century now.
In our sunset years, she glows even more brightly.
"

"For whom the Lord loveth he correcteh; even as a father the son in whom he delighteth (Proverbs 3:12).
"

Introduction
"The brief lines focus on doctrines and scripturally based principles especially relevant to the course corrections needed by those of us committed to making the journey of discipleship.
Because the Lord loves us enough to correct us, we in turn are instructed to 'neither be weary of his correction' (Proverbs 3:11; 15:10).
"

"We all need more gospel hope.
Greater hope inevitably flows from increased personal righteousness, all of which results from our course corrections and from diminishing our sins of omission.
"

"The Holy Ghost can teach us, completely and constantly, about 'things as they really are, and of things as they really will be' (Jacob 4:13).
"

Stretching to Reach the High Branches
"Many of us have already picked and been greatly nourished by the lowhanging fruit from the gospel tree.
Yet, on the higher branches, much fruit still remains, unreached for and unplucked.
.
.
.
God, who 'delights to honor' those who will so stretch urges us onward (D&C 76:5).
.
.
.
He knows all about stretching (2 Nephi 19:12, 17, 21).
"

Choice and Fulfillment
"What we have become will have determined our capacity for joy.
.
.
.
There could be no lasting or real joy, anyway, if some were forced into eternal circumstances they had neither desired nor were now able to enjoy.
.
.
.
Our present understanding is clearly limited about what constituted a fulness of joy.
Likewise, our appreciation of the fundamental necessity of agency in God's plan is similarly inadequate.
.
.
.
our individual determinations precede God's final determinations.
"

"God, a loving Father, is mercifully willing to give all that we are willing to receive.
President J.
Reuben Clark put it so well: 'I believe that in his justice and mercy he will give us the maximum reward for our acts, give us all that he can give, and in the reverse, I believe that he will impose upon us the minimum penalty which it is possible for him to impose.
'"

Having Character or Being a Character
"Getting attention is not as important as getting wisdom; the asserting of self is not as important as serving others.
"

The Last Days
"The last days will be discouraging with dizzying inversions of good being called evil, and evil good.
This form of vertigo produces worldly individuals who either have trouble drawing the line or holding the line against evil.
"

Our Days
"Whenever our time is, we can still make our days 'days never to be forgotten'.
"

Salt and Savor
"The true disciple knows that he is to persist and endure not only for his own sake but also for the sake of others.
"

Blessings Large and Small
"God's hand is surely in the pebblelike details as well as in the large panorama, and His ways of measuring are so much better than our ways.
"

Talking and Doing
"Sometimes we get so busy discussing the doctrines that talking about them almost becomes a substitute for applying them.
One cannot improve, therefore, upon the instructive words of King Benjamin: 'Now, if you believe all these things see that ye do them' (Mosiah 4:10).
"

Becoming Spiritually Settled
"Superficial affiliation is not conducive to course correction.
"

"He who was most wounded knows how to heal us.
"

God Loves Each of Us
"The most clear and personal way for us to learn (and to be reminded) that God really does know and love us is through the Holy Ghost.
.
.
.
Even though unreciprocated, God's love has not gone unextended.
His redeeming 'arm is stretched out' and His 'hand is stretched out still' (D&C 136:22; 2 Nephi 20:4).
"

"Cast 'all your care upon [God], for he careth for you' (1 Peter 5:7).
.
.
.
In countless, individualized ways, God's loving kindness and longsuffering are clearly manifest to us.
Even so, amid His profound love for us, He will not force us to come home to Him.
"

Broken Bows
"Broken bows litter the landscapes of our lives, representing yesterday's frustrations.
These were real enough at the moment.
Dotting the same landscape, however, are many more reminders of blessings than of discarded broken bows.
May we have the eyes to see that which an outside auditor would surely see as he counts our blessings.
"

Modern Joshuas
"The Joshuas of the twentyfirst century will be righteous fathers and mothers the world over.
These are the unsung but nevertheless real heroes and heroines of our time.
"

The First and Second Commandments
"Can we really and fully keep the second commandment until the first is acknowledged and significantly kept?"

The Great Question
"In so many ways, we come back to the fundamental question, namely, do we believe in God, and, if so, what kind of God? In the New Testament, the operative inquiry was, 'What think ye of Christ?' (Matthew 22:42)".
.
.
.
We are all left free to choose.
Nevertheless, the 'great question' remains; ignored or unanswered, it still refuses to go away, even if we turn away from it and from Him (Mosiah 3:5).
"

Overcoming by Faith
"Among other things, a real disciple is willing, if necessary, to be part of a righteous behavioral minority, enduring the tauntings and cultural disapproval of those who walk in the wide and broad way.
"

The Blessings of Meekness
"When, for instance, we are overlooked or bypassed, we can easily feel slighted.
Meekness emancipates us from such a reaction, because it neither regards others as rivals nor as objects of envy.
.
.
.
Rather, they draw strength from a much more fundamental assurance: they know that God loves them.
.
.
.
The meek are simply more free, more peacful, and more cheerful.
"

Staggering Not
"The promise given Abraham about his impending posterity went against the obvious, but he did not stagger.
If we ask ourselves what we are missing by being able to see 'afar off,' it includes soaring things that can stagger the imagination if we do not possess adequate faith.
.
.
.
We can perish, too, if tunnel vision is all we have.
"

Enduring and Stretching
"Stretching our spiritual capacity takes time, but such enlargement is the essence of discipleship, and it is tied to our eternal happiness.
"

Smiles and Shades
"Even our simplest smiles are like parted shutters, emitting the soullight of which there is no surplus in the world.
Nevertheless, too many live as if boarded up, preferring to look out upon others rather than illuminating the scene themselves.
Such tinted glass in its variations is a strange twist on seeing 'through a glass, darkly' (1 Corinthians 13:12).
The distancing is scarcely consistent with the open, sunlit second great commandment.
Privacy is rightfully cherished, of course, for providing needed renewal and respite, but not to cover sins.
Yet there are selfish forms of privacy meant to insulate one from one's neighbors, constituting an assertion of individuality at the expense of keeping the second commandment.
"

Agency and Joy
"In the next world, we will finally receive what we have persistently desired and chosen during mortality.
.
.
.
In effect, we will receive the degree of joy we have demonstrably chosen and which we have developed the capacity to receive.
.
.
.
Only divine truth obeyed makes us eternally free.
"

The Available Atonement
"More of the Atonement is still available for us to apply individually.
If we are meek enough, we will be churned by conscience and the Spirit as to past and present shortcomings, including our sins of omission as well as of commission.
Divine discontent will cause us to draw even further upon the Atonement, bring us thereafter supernal peace of conscience and healing.
"

God's Character and Purposes
"'Carest thou not that we perish?' (Mark 4:38) This and similar expressions demonstrate a failure to understand God's omniscient and perfect caring.
Such questioning and wondering about the character of God reminds us of what the Prophet Joseph Smith wisely said: 'If men do not comprehend the character of God, they do not comprehend themselves.
'" I enjoyed reading this book and had a lot of epiphanies.
