Alonzo Gaskill builds on work done in the same vein by authors such as Robert Millett and Stephen Robinson, highlighting the love God has for us that overcomes all. There is too much of value in Bro. Gaskill's thoughts to convey entirely here, but let me summarize a few thoughts that really stood out for m. Gaskill writes, "God knows we're going to fall short. His expectation of us is not perfection but an attitude of willingness to endure, sorrow for sin, and a determination to move ourselves bit by bit toward Him in our nature, thoughts, and actions. This is what Hugh Nibley referred to as the "Doctrine of the Two Ways.

Reviews about Odds Are, You're Going to Be Exalted: Evidence That the Plan of Salvation Works (7):
Nuadador
A compelling and easy read - VERY well documented and uses lots of scriptures as well as modern-day prophet and apostle quotes - making this a great example of 'applied' scripture and gospel study. Relates well with practical advice from the Arbinger InstituteThe Anatomy of Peace (BK Life (Hardcover)), Covey Spiritual Roots of Human Relations, and even CS Lewis' non-fiction works Mere Christianity (C.S. Lewis Signature Classics).
Reading and pondering helped me to understand better the Atonement, unconditional love, patience, charity, and other Christlike attributes, as well as hope in a loving, caring, and successful Heavenly Father. Worth rereading and definitely quotable for talks, parenting, and personal inspiration.

This book gives hope. Obviously, LDS (Mormon) members will understand the concepts mostly; however, I believe a lot of individuals in the world can benefit from this book. Many, including myself, don't full understand Gods Plan of Salvation for all humankind but many believe that they will not "make it" back to God after this life of probation. This book helps to give understanding to some of the scriptures and teaching of Christ regarding the Plan of Salvation. It's a short read and easy to understand. The concepts are not too deep, in my opinion, but you should have a general understanding of the Plan of Salvation before diving into it.

Not sure the coverage of this topic was quite worth a full book, smaller size, larger print, it felt stretched. An article in a journal would have been more fitting. There were a few things that made me smile, like all his personal examples showed Alonzo in a bright light and the contrasting people in utter darkness (fellow high priests, in a ward he was visiting of course, a missionary companion, a fellow Christian) his examples turned me off, as you don't make a point by putting others down to raise yourself up.

He quotes McConkie too much, yes, I've read everything Bruce wrote, some twice, but he had a lot of dogmatic opinions. I literally laughed out loud when he quoted Bruce's son Joseph from "personal correspondence" to make a point - I was like seriously, just because Joseph said it, it must be true - not the best way to support a point you're trying to make.

The redeeming factor of the book, was the few quotes that most members of the church don't come across or know about, so from that perspective, I like the quotes, which have been around a long time!!

I was impressed by the thoughtfulness and kindness of the author in dealing with a topic that can easily go down many wrong roads.
