ANTI-MORMON BOOKS - BOOKS CRITICAL OF "MORMONISM"

Steven H Propp
The list author says: "The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS/Mormons) has been a source of controversy ever since its founding in 1830.

Much of the controversy comes from its confrontations with "traditional"/orthodox Christians, who perceive Mormons as a "nonchristian cult." Such persons have written many books critical of the LDS Church, of which these are (perhaps) the best.

To see the LDS responses and defense of their faith, see my list, "Latter-day Saint (LDS/Mormon) Apologetics."
