Mormonism is a beautiful but authoritative religion much liken to that of Roman Catholicism. But all you really have is just another beautiful and ethical religion that offers nothing in the life to come; only maybe in this life.
The Christian faith is one of a relationship and if one does not have that relationship, there is really no hope of eternity with the Lord.
Romans 8:8, 9b Those who are in the flesh cannot please God. ...Anyone who does not have the Spirit of Christ does not belong to Him.
Unfortunately the Christ is simply another god among many, many, many, other gods in Mormonism; much liken to that of Hinduism.
Authors McKeever and Johnson meticulously examine 6 fundamental areas of Mormon doctrine, providing readers with a comprehensive overview of each. Allowing the teachings of Mormon leaders and manuals to frame and explain Mormon beliefs, each section of the book includes a wide range of quotes from respectable Mormon sources as well as Christian responses to some of these Mormon assertions. Additional pertinent (and good!) information is found at the end of each section in the footnotes, where the authors not only reference their sources but also provide readers with contrary viewpoints and/or additional details and context.
Two things I really like that have been added to this edition are: 1) A section titled “Mormonese” at the front of each chapter that defines, in a sentence or two, unique Mormon words and concepts readers will encounter in that chapter; and 2) An appendix that addresses 15 common logical fallacies in order to help readers “utilize sound reasoning skills” as they (hopefully) have opportunity to make use of the Discussion Questions the authors have included at the end of each chapter.
Some people may disagree with the conclusions of McKeever and Johnson, but the information they provide in this book is well researched, well documented, and well organized, making Mormonism 101 well worth adding to your resource library.
OLD EDITION REVIEW: In Mormonism 101 McKeever and Johnson handle thorny doctrinal concepts with authority and no apologies. They have obviously done thorough research. The quotes, in addition to the 6 page bibliography, show the authors have used LDS source documents nearly exclusively. The information found in the book is up-to-date, some quoted statements of LDS authorities dated in the year 2000. Accurately representing teachings of LDS prophets, Apostles and Seventies (as well as others) McKeever and Johnson have put it all together in a very readable form. If there is any fault to be found with the book it may be in the title which, in my opinion, would be more accurate as Mormonism 101-401. The book is much more than an introduction to Mormonism. I believe this book will be a valuable resource for anyone interested in sorting through the divergant views of Mormonism as portrayed by the LDS Church and its critics.
