In today's Internet world, an increasing number of Latter-day Saints are encountering anti-Mormon material. In the absence of ready answers, LDS-critical claims can be unsettling or create doubt. Some arguments have caused a few members — even active members with strong testimonies — to lose their faith. Shaken Faith Syndrome explores how we can be both critical thinkers and devout believers. Misconceptions that can make us vulnerable to shaken faith are dispelled, and some of the most frequent anti-LDS claims are refuted. Shaken Faith Syndrome invites us to strengthen our testimonies and intellectual foundations as we develop a more mature appreciation for prophets and revelation as well as a greater understanding of the inherent limitations of science, history, and even the scriptures.

I liked this book because it offers solid answers to some of the more challenging questions that come up in studying the gospel and working our way through life. It presents the facts and helped me better understand several subjects that I had put on the back burner because of my desire to focus on being faithful, not doubting. An interesting read for anyone who has questions that they cannot seem to get answers for or for someone to help a friend with the same.

Wonderful book. Every LDS home should have it in their home library. Easy to understand and gives answers to questions we all probably have on our journey through life. Very helpful to understand the gospel more fully and answers questions -or doubts we may carry in our hearts.
