Original Grace

An Experiment in Restoration Thinking


“Hallelujah! Adam Miller turns original sin, law, and justice on their heads and provides us with a new grasp on grace and divine love. He weaves together stories of his father with theological explanations of a true, living Savior and of the beautiful partnership I so desperately need with Him. This book speaks to me in a very personal way, and I am finally able to place myself, with new eyes and a new heart, to a grand understanding of God’s love for me. I see the plan of salvation and the role of Christ on a higher level.”

Jenny Reeder, author of First: The Life and Faith of Emma Smith

“Adam Miller has been rearranging my theological furniture for years, but I think Original Grace ranks as critical reading for Latter-day Saints everywhere. Once or twice in a generation, an author reinvigorates our theological imagination

J. Spencer Fluhman, executive director, Neal A. Maxwell Institute, Brigham Young University
