Books on Mormonism

There are 2 books I highly recommend

Mormons Answered Verse by Verse, by David Reed (who also wrote Jehovah's Witnesses Verse by Verse) and The God Makers, by Ed Decker, a former mormon himself..


Highly recommended. You can actually get them pretty cheap, used, on Amazon.com or half.com




(If anyone has any other books they found helpful, feel free to post here too.)

Re: Books on Mormonism

People write alot of books on a lot of topics that aren't always accurate. I've seen that with books written about pentecostals by baptists and vice versa. The best way to accurately get an idea on what a particular group believes is to read THEIR book. In this case, it would be the book of Mormon. If you want real insight into what they are thinking, start there, or ask a missionary to explain it to you. If you are a well grounded and rooted Christian, then no brainwashing will happen. But if you don't care to know that aspect of their life,or don't think it's necessary in trying to reach them, then ok.

I agree 100% percent with you.

the best way to learn what a group believes is from the group itself.
Not from other biased sources.

Re: Books on Mormonism

amen to that; and, as weird as it might sound, you can reliably ignore them as a source of what they believe, also; or at least ignore what they say. People are known by their fruit.

Ahhh yes, by their fruits, ye shall know them. I get that, but what I meant was when it came to theological questions, the ones who are in that belief system are the ones to ask.

Re: Books on Mormonism

I have a Book of Mormons in my library and refer to it often when seeking to find answers to questions that arise concerning them, their faith and practices.

I'm curious on whether you ever found anything in the book of mormon that outright contradicted anything the bible said. I do know that somewhere in it, it outright says that Jesus is God. I always found that intriguing.

The Holy Bible? Always seemed to work for me when interacting with them.
