When Bowman writes, I pay attention, because he is a careful researcher and he does his homework. As a result, his writings are invariably helpful, informative and well-thought-out. This booklet, "What Mormons Believe," is no exception. Bowman correctly views Mormonism, not as a branch of Christianity, but as a cult; however, his tone is not mean-spirited, but informative. This booklet is an overview of Mormonism; and is, therefore, refreshingly short, and can easily be read in one sitting; nevertheless it covers a lot of ground regarding Mormonism, and touches on the place of Mormonism in American business and culture; a short history of Mormonism; the Book of Mormon; Mormon doctrines; and a biblical response to Mormonism; as well as a suggestion at the end on how a Christian can share their faith with a Mormon.
This booklet was originally a chapter in the book, "A Guide to New Religious Movements," (2005), edited by Ronald Enroth. This booklet (2012) is an updated, expanded version of that chapter. It also contains 3 features that I found especially helpful: First, his booklet begins with a short exploration of the Mormon background of Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney, and the place Mormonism occupies in his life.Read more ›
The key issue in this discussion is coming to an understanding of Mormon history and theology. Robert Bowman has produced a very short and very helpful introduction to the basics of Mormon thought. He quickly traces the history of the religion and the key ideas within the church. Then, he offers a succinct Christian response to the claims and beliefs of Mormonism. We are all prone to assuming that we understand an issue and dismissing it just as quickly. However, there is considerable wisdom in coming to understand those with whom we disagree. Other religions are no different.
In our increasingly post-Christian culture it is important for believers to understand their non-Christian neighbors and our secular culture. Handbooks like this one provide a welcome and necessary addition to any Christian's library.
