Evangelistic heat and no substance
Oh when will we get past the childish notion that your religion is better than my religion? The arguments are crude and outdated. The entire book can be summed up in the notion that it is hot air -something that the evangelists will love to push against and make themselves feel good. But theres nothing in it. If we use the same methods in this book for identifying "Christianity" then no one is safe. There is always someone who thinks he knows best - and the evangelist is the worst one to shout it from the roof tops and a similar "talent" was responsible for the killing of Joseph. Others continue where they left off! Hence the book! No real element of criticism and interest just the usual mormon bashing. A dissapointment. Pity it. Do not waste your money.
Check on Brodie "no one knows my history". There is real meat. Real criticism and an intellect. It really gets you thinking about everything. All religion not just LDS. Its not for the squeamish but it is the best buy on amazon!...
Christ is in some very funny places. Staring back at us in the very people we tend to hate. His meassage is strong as ever yes even in Mormonism.
Read the Book of Mormon.
Well, don't all of you praise Mormons at once! Just look at your reviews, you so make me laugh. No, I have not read the book, but all of you just want to criticise each other! Take a chill pill! Kerri, read the Bible carefully (specifically the New Testament) and study Mormonism for yourself. Then see how closely they match. Ron, just how closely have you yourself studied Mormonism? Have you ever met a Mormon yourself? No? I didn't think so! Mormons do believe in The Father, The Son and The Holy Ghost, just that they are separate beings rather than all One. No offence, but I think all of you should take a leaf from Dave Peppin and find out firsthand what us Mormons are really like, not find out from a book by people who most likely wouldn't know a Mormon if they fell across one in the street. I challenge you ALL to get a copy of the Book of Mormon and read it yourselves, but you have to actually ASK the Lord if it is true, not just assume it's not. You will get an answer. After all, as the Lord himself said, "By their fruits ye shall know them". (Sermon on the Mount, Matthew 7:20)
I was not allowed to select less than 1 crown.
The contributors to this book are quite probable clever people. Saying this, I am forced to wonder why they would feel a need to bad mouth one of the world's fastest growing religions, especially when they do not know what they are talking about. If anyone want's to know the truth about "The Church of Jesus Christ of LatterDay Saints" or as they and some others put it Mormons why not talk to the people who actually know and understand the subject matter. Ask the church, the members, even visit the web site. Do this and then make up your own minds.
