This book offers up compelling evidence of the many fallacies of Mormonism, using the church's own documents and historical records. Although I am sure any Mormon reading this will be offended and Mormon apologists will attempt to dispute what is written, the bottom line is that even some Mormon scholars cited in this book agree that there have been attempts to rewrite history by Joseph Smith and Brigham Young with regard to the "revelation" of celestial marriage and polygamy as well as other practices that would be damning if the truth were widely known. How anyone could be duped by this cult is nothing short of incredible. So many of the doctrines of this faith are in direct contradiction to the Bible. This is a religion deeply influenced by the occult and virtually all temple practices are occultic in nature. Freemasonry influenced Joseph Smith and this can be seen by descriptions of similar practices between Mormonism and Masonic rites such as secret handshakes, signs, temple garment embellishments, etc. Although the Mormon church presents itself as a church of Jesus Christ, it is anything but. The church teaches that Jesus and Lucifer are spirit brothers, that some sins are not covered by the sacrificial blood of Christ thus the doctrine of blood atonement that is still practiced by fundamentalist sects today. It is truly frightening to peel away the layers of deception and see the real doctrines and beliefs of Mormonism. The authors have provided damning evidence that exposes the real truth behind one of the fastest growing religions of today. I highly recommend this!

It took a very long time for me to read this book. And I mean years. I spent all my youth turning a blind eye to anything anyone said about the Mormon church that made me uncomfortable. It is very true when they say "ignorance is bliss." Also anyone who is raised in any religion is brain-washed to believe what they are taught. But I found myself always not knowing what I was talking about. Would you believe that though I was raised a Mormon I never knew that Joseph Smith was a polygamist and his wife Emma was unaware of some of his marriages and that he married women who already had husbands? (So much for the teaching that Brigham Young only taught polygamy because there was a shortage of husbands.) I also didn't know that Brigham Young strongly taught that Adam was God, and that God lived on a planet called Kolab, and that God came down in the form of a man and had physical relations with Mary to conceive Jesus. I didn't know a thing about blacks being denied the priesthood until 1978, and I could go on and on and on and on. I only started to research these things (against the strong advice of my bishop) because I wanted to be able to "debate" about the truthfulness of my religion to non-members.

Discovery the truth of my religion was a horrible experience for me. I can not express enough how hard it is for a Mormon to leave the religion. Mormonism isn't just a religion. It's your identity and your whole life. It is very important to be understanding to Mormons because leaving Mormonism is no different than leaving your whole life and everyone that loves you. It's a horrible awakening to see the truths of the Mormon church.

Also anyone who goes through the secret rituals of the temple can tell you it's a very shocking experience, whether you believe in it or not.

Being a Mormon for 27 years; I can tell you it is not easy for a Mormon to find out the fallacies of their religion. The Mormon people need to realize it is not the writings of people like Ed Drecker, but their so called prophets that continally contradict the bible and their own teachings.
I do not agree with many of these reviews that claim the book is full of lies--quite the contrary. However, I would not recommend anyone suggest this book to a "True Believing Mormon." True believers tend to be very narrow minded (take it from me I was one; and so are many in my hometown of Rexburg, Idaho, which is an extremely large population of Mormons). This is why I recommend a more loving approach to these true believers. "Mormonism, Mama, and Me" is a book that exposes the corruption in the foundation of the church in a much more loving approach for the "true believer." I was only able to read The God Makers after I had completely left the church--which was a long process and not something that happened over night.
This book is abbrasive; but after many years of research, I belive the truth can withstand scrutiny (it took me many years to come to this realization). Read this book for yourself if you so desire; I did enjoy it. But as I stated earlier do not use this book to witness to true believing Mormons; it is too abbrasive for people who have devoted their lives to not just a religion, but a lifestyle. I pray everyday for Mormons to open their minds and hearts so they may too see the lies in the foundation of the organization they belong to.
God Bless.

I am a Christian woman who has a good grasp of what Mormons believe. I have made it my business to know, because I have worked for two people who are Mormon for over a dozen years, and I care about them very much. This is the third book I have read on Mormonism, and I didn't think I could be any further shocked by the occultic practices of this religion. I was wrong. After reading a couple of other books that described the bizarre Temple rituals Mormons go through, hoping to progress to some sort of "Godhood", I wondered, where on earth does this come from? Why would anyone go through this nonsense? The God Makers will explain it to you. Masonry is where it came from. Joseph Smith, the charlatan who came up with Mormonism, was a mason. He merely stole their ideas and practices and incorporated them into this false religion. Throw in some plagerized bible verses, mis-state other scripture, make up the rest, and there you have it. What I cannot fathom is how many millions of people have fallen for this lie.

This book pulls no punches. I'm sure Mormons will call it rubbish. These poor people. Taught to believe whatever they are told, they are plainly warned never to take the time to look into the mountains of evidence against its claims.

I am making it a priority in my life to pray for the deliverance of all Mormons from the false and misleading doctrine taught to them. For anyone who reads this book and is heartbroken over those caught in the web of Mormonism, I invite you to join me.
