Product Description

From the time Joseph Smith walked out of the grove of trees having experienced a vision and having spoken with God and Jesus Christ, his words have opened the door to persecution. As disciples of Christ, we ought to be serious students of the gospel who are able to provide a defense of our faith. In this book, LDS scholars discuss criticisms of the Church on a variety of issues, including the question of whether Mormons are Christian, the various accounts of Joseph Smith’s First Vision, and LDS beliefs about becoming like God, continuing revelation, and plural marriage. The book also includes chapters about DNA research and the Book of Mormon, along with the role of evidence and the need for honesty in religious discussion. This volume does not address every point of opposition, but it does provide thoughtful and reliable answers to several hard questions.

    Excellent and needed response to and clarity of LDS views on a number of topics
    By , Submitted on 2015-02-25

    This is a very much needed book. I think it could be easily argued that 'the church' has been very slow, if not negligent, in not addressing current issues critical of our beliefs.
    Our academics play an important role here and this book is an excellent attempt at addressing and clarifying our beliefs.There are some excellent essays here; Robert Millet's page 19 is a valued and clearly written work as is John Welsh's essay page 259 is equally excellent. There are many others in this compilation equally outstanding. There is certainly more books in this genre to be written. As a Senior Missionary returned from Europe it is important that this information needs somehow to be translated in other languages, it is needed!
