EXPECTATIONS FOR ENDOWED LIVING


by Roy A. Cheville

Reorganized Latter Day Saints have long looked to "the endowment," sometimes with unrealistic expectations of a sudden empowerment by God without preparation on their part. Expectations for Endowed Living quickly dispels this myth. "God grants endowing power to persons, to people who are working together with Him in this cause," says Dr. Cheville.

This book is divided into five "expectations" following a "foundational" foreword, "How Expectations Function in Our Living." The reader is led to examine his motivations, his knowledge of the endowing experience in the Scriptures, and his willingness to acquire the quality of love in relationships that is a necessary requisite for empowerment.
