Format: Paperback
This wonderful book covers many quesitons asked by new LDS members, their families and critics of the Church. It points out the common fallacies and half-truths often used to try and confuse members. This book should be on the shelf of every LDS Church member, as well as those of people who are curious about the truth behind all those desperate accusations. Well-researched and written. Can't praise it highly enough

This is a great book to easily find answers to questions about the LDS faith. It is a good read, easy to understand and gives informative and thoughtful responses to Gospel related subjects. A very useful reference work.

Format: Paperback
Although the author is my dad and perhaps this might seem to bias my judgement, I have used his book numerous times both in teaching lessons and for personal research. I do this not because my dad wrote the book but because the answers are solid and well-worded. Oftentimes his book is the best reference to questions which on the surface seem impossible to answer (supposed mysteries with which we must use faith). I have learned that an answer exists to every question and so has my father. He expresses that point well by answering those difficult questions which many of us have.

2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Steven H. Propp TOP 100 REVIEWER on July 13, 2011
Format: Paperback
The author wrote in the Introduction to this 1995 book, "Although the answers to many missionary questions are to some extent found in the Church books published today, those answers often are not easily located and, frequently can only be found through time-consuming research. Since extensive time and gospel libraries are not available to many members and missionaries, it is my hope that I can pull together answers to many questions in one resource aid... It is hoped that this book will answer many of the common difficult questions about the restored gospel."

Here are some additional quotations from the book:

"Truth cannot be self-contradictory, so any group of churches which disagrees on points of doctrine cannot logically claim to have unflawed doctrine. Pure truth can only be found in Christ's church..." (Pg. 19)
"Indeed, Jesus prophesied correctly, for the gates of hell did not prevail against those built upon Christ and his revelation to the prophets. Rather, the church fell into general apostasy when members began to rely on the philosophies of men, setting aside prophecy and Christ himself. The many firm believers in Christ, those who were 'called out,' died firm and untainted by the apostasy." (Pg. 28-29)
"Were Abraham, Jacob, Moses, Nathan, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Jonah, and Jesus false prophets? If we use Deuteronomy 18:20-22 as an absolute rule and believe the Bible to be inerrant, we might be led to this conclusion." (Pg. 42)
"The assumption (of anti-Mormons) is that because God is an unchanging being, his requirements and commandments never change. Yet, many examples of change may be found throughout the Bible and especially the New Testament." (Pg.

Format: Paperback
After growing up in the U.S. traditional Christian world, and converting to Mormonism at the age of 35, the past eight years have been a struggle for me to move beyond the often judgmental and preconceived notions that I grew up with for so many years. After thousands of hours of study I find that I much prefer deciding for myself where my heart lies, and it is works such as this book that bring new insight, thinking, contemplation and eventual knowledge into my own understanding as to what I feel the scriptures really mean to me. This book will give new insights into interpretations of scriptures from whatever background you come from. By knowing what the critics are saying and their common attacks and also becoming more knowlegeable with traditional Christian thinking, a follower of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints will gain knowledge of their fellow brethren that will possibly help them come closer in communication and understanding. Through reading this book traditional Christians may begin to see why the many tactics used toward their fellow Latter-Day Saint brethren don't really have much impact in conversion but will always really be directed toward their own congregations trying to get them not to look or think for themselves, and that by gaining a knowledge of why the effect is nill may bring knew insight into developing relationships with their fellow brethren that are meaningful and very productive. Either way, both sides have knowledge to gain by understanding the truth about the issues. Go ahead, click the "BUY BUTTON" -- don't judge a book by its cover or its glue!
