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.

Why in the world, though, did the publishers make the type so tiny?? I had to buy much stronger readers, to read this book, as my normal glasses didn't magnify the tiny type enough.
At first, I was thinking the Mormon religion wasn't too far off from my own beliefs. The missionaries seem to say what they think I want to hear. Seems that you aren't informed as to ALL that their church requires until AFTER you are baptized into their religion.
Latayne Scott wrote this wonderful, thoughtful and informative book for Mormons who want to learn the truth and non-Mormons who wish to learn about Mormonism. I love that she uses biblical references to point out the similarities and or differences. I made so many highlights in my Kindle so that I can re-reference this book as many times as I need to.
I recently met an ex-Mormon and asked him to read this book, I hope he does as he is now atheist.
Everything you need to know about Mormonism is explained in this book.
The book gets a little soft when it attempts to support already established facts with evangelical testimony, which is not based on facts at all. Perhaps the fundamentalist verbiage is attractive to so-called anti-Mormons, but it may cause other people to view the entire work as a screed against the LDS Church and all its tributaries. Fortunately for me, I was able to look beyond that element and view the validity of the research.
