Latayne Scott is a gifted writer with a thorough knowledge of Mormonism. The book is filled not only with excellent information, but keen analysis. Moreover, she demonstrates genuine kindness and empathy toward Latter-day Saints, based on her positive experiences growing up in the LDS Church...The additional material provides excellent insight into current trends and problematic issues facing the Mormon world. Ms. Scott is very tuned in to the current climate, and she addresses all of the key issues and debates. People often ask me to recommended books on Mormonism. This one has risen to the top of my list. --Ross Anderson, author of Understanding the Book of Mormon
After reading Latayne Scott's The Mormon Mirage, I would say she has done the most complete analysis of the history and contemporary scene of the LDS religious movement. I recommend it highly. --Jackie Stearsman, Director, Florida School of Preaching
After reading Latayne Scott's The Mormon Mirage, I would say she has done the most complete analysis of the history and contemporary scene of the LDS religious movement. I recommend it highly.
Her book presents one of the most complete treatments of Mormon theology that I've read in some time. It is thorough, historically accurate, well researched and documented with up to date evidence that substantiates even further the falseness and deceptiveness of Mormonism. Her presentation of the errors of Mormonism is admirably balanced by her honest portrayal of not only the positive values of the Mormon Church, but in sharing her soul-wrenching resolve to leave the religion she had so loved, to embrace only Biblical truths - a heart-tugging decision that I can well identify with.

To be fair, each religious faith has issues that are not necessarily logical in history; theology; physical matter; and actions done in the name of that faith. Whether it be inquisitions; forced conversions; destruction of others for religious motivation; or blind adherence, and the resistence to countradiction.
Recently America had a Mormon bishop run for President of the United States. It is interesting as to how his religion and his practical application of law and process would be affected. Religion has been off limits as a discussion of acceptability of a Presidential candidate except for the immense concern and "papal coins" discussion when John F. Kennedy ran for President and the current President, Barack Obama, who was alleged to be a Muslim, a Black Church separatist etc. We have a lot to learn about world conditions, foreign affairs and American history to be intelligent selectors of our elected representatives.
