Mormonism is no doubt one of the most successful religions on earth. As Joesph Smith boasted that he led the early mormons even better than Paul, Moses and Jesus (HC 6:408-412). I believe this to be quite true. Yet, even if you ask the mormon missionaries, members or bishops they don't know about the Adam-God theory, Different accounts of the First Vision, Endowment similarities with the Free Masonary or the completely pagan Book of Abraham, etc. These things you will not learn at BYU, missionary sessions, Sunday school, or seminary. Most LDS don't even know about these stuff. The best way to judge for yourself is to read mormon and anti-mormon books then judge for yourself if The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is as good as the name sounds or is just another religion.

They charge, "Nevertheless, because Mormonism teaches that its gods are localized and physical, it is not unexpected that they can have sexual intercourse. Mormonism teaches that the gods are sexually active." (Pg. 21) He adds, "In Mormonism, Jesus is also seen as the brother of Satan. Since Satan was also a preexistent spirit creation of the male and female earth gods, Christ must, therefore, be his relation." (Pg.

Format: Paperback
This book is titled "The Facts About Mormons" but all the facts don't seem to be a high priority for this author. This book is full of half truths and spin. If all you want is fodder to attack someones religious beliefs then this is the book for you. It won't challange you or cause you to think, but then open mindedness is probably not an important trait of yours.

If, however, you are truly trying to understand Mormonism and all that it entails, their are a number of books that are far superior to this one. I would recomend "No Man Knows My History" by Fawn Brodie or any book by D. Michale Quinn. Both authors are ex-Mormons but at least they try to take a more honost aproach to the subject.

Interesting history on mormons. From begining to the current chnges in 1978. Not sure about the documents that reinforce the belief. But a good start for any reader.

Format: Paperback
Though not a member of the LDS Church, I am fascinated by Mormonism and have spent time studying it. It's definitely difficult for outsiders to understand the Mormon experience but this book sheds no light and does a disservice to it. This is an unfair and biased representation of the Mormon religion. In 48 pages, one can hardly delve into a religion and culture very deeply or accurately. On top of that, it's obvious the author has an agenda of his own and it doesn't have anything to do with presenting the truth. For a very interesting and fair look at the Mormon Church and culture, I highly recommend Mormon America by Richard N. Osting & Joan K. Ostling. Don't waste your money on this tripe.

This book appears to be a factual non-biased account of the Mormon faith. However, it doesn't take long (by pg. 15) to realize the book is incredibly biased against the faith, to the point of refusing to recognize that the Mormon faith is indeed a Christian denomination. Read with caution: don't take it as a factual account without bias as there is plenty of negative bias about the faith in here for everyone!

Format: Paperback
A simple book to keep a person updated on the history of the Mormon church. Mr. Ankerberg is another writer who puts the facts out for anyone to learn the hidden side of cults. This book serves as a current guide for people trying to not be swayed with the plagarized works of Joseph Smith. It's a great book to keep handy in case a young Mormon missionary is trying to persuade people who don't know the truth of the Mormon church and they certainly won't tell you. ie. blood atonement and secret handshakes, and slitting of the throat gestures in the obediant temples. I would recommend the book to anyone simply trying to avoid being told what the Mormons believe at this current time. It serves as a historical reference of how many changes the "prophets", always life-long Mormons, have covered up and changed.
