The life before by Brent L Top( Book )

2 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As we ponder the meaning of life, we experience yearnings to know the distant past, to obtain understanding of our spiritual roots and divine lineage, to link time with timelessness. Knowledge of the premortal existence becomes crucial in our search.In the most positive sense, The Life Before is a journey backward. At the foundation of his exploration, author and teacher Brent L. Top explains why various cultures and religions believe in a life before this one. He cites biblical evidence of our premortal existence and points to revelations given to Joseph Smith and other latter-day prophets. Together, these resources build upon each other and work to take our understanding beyond the veil and into 'timelessness.'The Life Before first delves into such fascinating topics as our spiritual origins and capacities, premortal organization and harmony, agency, opposition, foreordination, the eternal nature of the priesthood, and the war in heaven⁰́₄all elements that are 'timeless.' The author's focus then shifts to a discussion of 'time'⁰́₄our earthly existence⁰́₄and the reader learns what the 'here and now' has to do with everything that happened 'then.'This well-researched, well-written book⁰́₄possibly the most thorough treatment of this subject⁰́₄presents a rich array of scriptures and other inspired words (more than most of us know about) plus a solid interpretive commentary that resists speculation while still illuminating the thrilling aspects of this fascinating topic. These exciting insights into our first estate will buoy you up spiritually, increase your knowledge and understanding of the life before, and motivate you to live worthy to return to the presence of our Eternal Father
