Editorial Reviews

Review

"Shipps, the foremost scholar of Mormonism, describes her 40-year sojourn among the Latter-day Saints in this brilliant collection that is part intellectual autobiography and part religious history...In chronicling the 'diaspora ' that has made Mormonism a global religion, and in dissecting her own experiences as a non-Mormon commentator on these transformations, Shipps offers compelling and perceptive examples of change over time." Publisher 's Weekly

I am a Christian person who has put some study into the Mormon religion to answer the very question Ms. Shipps dodges: Are Mormons Christian? The answer is no. Do they believe in one G-d? No. Do they believe Jesus gives the one way to eternal life? No. (They have a works-based system, believing you can "progress" to "Godhood".) They also believe in a Heavenly Mother, and that there are many planets out there with multiple gods. Your average nice Molly Mormon doesn't know this stinky bit of theology because their cult is so busy filling up their days with social events. Ms. Shipps obviously made some friends amongst the Mormons and wished not to offend them. Yes, they are lovely people but so are the Hindus and Buddhists, this doesn't make them Christian. I was excited to read her book because she obviously has some deep thoughts and some good points about how their stating they are "Israel" and everyone else a "gentile" has changed over time to softerlinguistics to confuse biblically illiterate people into thinking the cult of Mormonism is "Christian" For Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. 2 Corinthians 11:14 The angel Moroni is a self proclaimed angel of light. A much better resource is the book By His Own Hands on Papyrus, that show the original Joseph Smith papyri to be excerpts from the Egyptian book of the dead, as he "translated" them before people knew how to decipher hieroglyphics.
