    Elder Hafen uses words beautifully and his insights are deep. This book is the beginning of a set of four exploring different states of the heart: believing, broken, belonging, covenant; and this one is the smallest of the four. I hope I have a believing heart. I do believe the idea th...

    So this is part of a trilogy, however this first book is not much more than a collection of talks and essays given in the '70's and '80's. It was just what I needed. I was in a place where I needed to feel warm "arms" around me and this was just it. It got me remotivated and confide...

    This book is short, but has some incredible insight pertaining to faith, and how to become more Christlike in our daily pursuits. I recommend it for anyone, but especially those who seek to understand what faith is, and why it is so important in our discipleship of Jesus Christ. I w...

    This is actually the first book in Elder Hafen's series about hearts. It sets the stage for his discussion about three important principles - faith, the Atonement, and relationships. He explains that "(1) faith prepares us to receive the Atonement; (2) the Atonement purifies, mellows, ...

    "The Believing Heart" is a beautiful treatise on developing greater faith. I found so much truth in it, and recognized my own challenges in so many of Hafen's examples. I especially loved in the final chapter when he compared the trajectories of some of our lives to the early saints' j...

    A women's conference suggestion. This is probably one of the best church books I've ever read. It's about building faith, and what that really means. It took me forever to read it because I kept stopping, pondering, wondering and asking. One of the chapters is about free agency. One of...

    Each chapter is an essay of sorts answering a question on faith. They don't necessary connect together, but each is great on its own. I love Hafen's literary voice. He's easy to read and follow while still being very insightful. ...

    This book dealt with faith and its application to the Atonement. I felt like it repeated a lot of ideas from The Broken Heart, but it also brought a new perspective of needing to have faith in the power of the Atonement. ...

    Excellent series of talks or speeches. I ended up tabbing a couple because I know myself well enough to knowI will want to find my way back here. Great reasoning, true spirit, a feeling of love captured in the printed word. I really enjoy Bruce C. Hafen's books and have plans on readin...

    This book was just OK for me. There are some really wonderful insights and I truly treasured the first few chapters. The two chapters in the middle kind of confused me. I absolutely loved The Broken Heart by the same author. I think I was expecting the same kind of experience as th...

    These five essays are reassuring and thought-provoking for the LDS reader and perhaps for others. Highly recommended. Hafen's insights are profound and profoundly human. ...

    I really liked this book. It's a series of essays by Elder Hafen, and the first book in a trilogy. The essays were easy to read, but they still got to the heart of the matter and really made you think. I look forward to reading more of these. ...
