Publisher's Summary

Mormons, or members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, form a growing population in both numbers and influence. Yet few people have more than a passing knowledge of the document that defines and drives this important movement: the Book of Mormon.
A former Mormon and an adult convert to Christianity, author Ross Anderson provides a clear summary of the Book of Mormon, including its history, teachings, and unique features. Stories from the author and other ex-Mormons illustrate the use of Mormon scripture in the Latter-day Saints church. Anderson gives special attention to how the Book of Mormon relates to Christian beliefs about God, Jesus, and the Bible.
With discussion questions to facilitate group use and a focus on providing an accurate portrayal of Mormons beliefs, Understanding the Book of Mormon is an indispensable guide for anyone wishing to become more familiar with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and its most formative scripture.

It is always interesting to me!?

It seems that so many "rocking chair" so called scriptural scholars have all the answers when it comes to the weaknesses of the Book of Mormon. Mr. Anderson insights are in no way original nor are they earth shattering as he either intends or hopes for. At least come up with some originality new insight. This book is just a rehash of what others who have been criticizing since the time of the Prophet Joseph Smith. A typical retread of the same ole' stuff...boring and insulting to one's intelligence.

Quick & Informative

most Christians know little to nothing about Mormons. As the title indicates this book was relatively quick and informative. The author provided the information and advice in a very kind and gentle way towards Mormons and their views/beliefs of Christianism. I definitely know more now than I did prior to listening to this book.
