Format: Paperback
There are few books out there that give a neutral view and story of the Mormon church, but Abanes has managed to write a book that walks a steady line down the center. This is less a book about what Mormonism is and more of a study on whether or not Mormons are Christians (if you are looking for a clean, solid report on the Mormon Church, I would recommend you look at Abanes "One Nation Under Gods" or Richard Ostlings "Mormon America"). To reach his conclusion, Abanes looks at a short history of the Mormon Church and then tackles the core Mormon beliefs chapter by chapter.

Winding his way through the Aaronic Preisthood, Mormon belief about Godhood, the Pre-life and, of course, polygamy, Abanes lays out a well thought out argument and wraps it all up with a thick bow of endnotes, sources and a Q&A.

My main complaint with this book is that it contains a great deal of information that is repeated in One Nation Under Gods, so I felt like I was getting less value out of this book, having already purchased One Nation Under Gods. In addition to that, as a reader who was curious about the Mormon church in general, I found myself skipping over the chapters that attempted to address whether or not Mormons are Christians, because it is simply not important to me. That left me with only a chapter or two of information.

Overall, if you are looking for a book that will enlighten you on what Mormons believe and how they fit into the scheme of Christianity from a neutral standpoint, you couldn't find a better book. If you simply want to know about the Mormon Church itself, try one of the books I mentioned above instead.

I am the author of "Inside Today's Mormonism," which is the same volume as "Becoming Gods" (see amazon titles). "Becoming Gods" was published first, but later re-titled and re-covered as "Inside Today's Mormonism." For more reviews that apply to "Inside Today's Mormonism," please see the reviews of "Becoming Gods."

Thank you,

R. Abanes

The book is well written and very informative, covering the beliefs and practices of Mormons.
I enjoy reading about different denominations. I added this book to my collection.

Format: Paperback
Everyone has probably heard the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, seen the clean cut missionaries, or seen the commercials for the Church of Latter Day Saints. But, also are heard stories of polygamy and other darker things, and most Christians who have done any research will point out that Mormons are not members of another denomination, but of a whole different religion. Though there are similarities between the two, they are only superficial and as this book points out, the two religions are farther apart than they are close. In a non-condemning fashion, doctrinal errors are exposed and the history of their faith is revealed. It may be startling. However, whatever illusions this book shatters, the education it will provide is worthwhile.
