Here are some quotations from the book:
"This (definition of monotheism), however, redefines monotheism and does not account for the fact that Mormonism teaches the existence of gods who are not the Father, Son, or Holy Ghost." (Pg. 9)
"This veil lecture, dictated by Brigham Young in 1877, clearly implied that Adam was God the Father by explaining that prior to coming to this earth, Adam and Eve had been resurrected and exalted on a former world." (Pg. 43)
"This argument (that Brigham Young had never really taught the Adam-God theory as popularly presented) was effective, but it obviously would not suffice for church members who had heard Young publicly preach the Adam-God doctrine..." (Pg. 45)
"One reason why little theology was developed about a heavenly mother is that the scriptural basis for the doctrine was slim." (Pg. 107)
"The difficulty of harmonizing Joseph Smith's teaching that spirits have no beginning with the contemporary Mormon belief that spirits some into existence through a spirit birth has been resolved in two different ways." (Pg. 122)
I don't know if this author does this or not. If the publisher were not so afraid to let us see inside, I may have known the answer and purchased the book. Of course, I may have given the book a bad review. Maybe that's why the publisher keeps it inaccesible.
