This book is basically an "anti-mormon" book. The author was considering becoming a Mormon, then he discovered Christianity. He brought up some facts about Joseph Smith that I found interesting. But I found the author to be pretty repetitive in his arguments concerning the bible and the book of Mormon. A lot of the same scripture passages popped up for about 200 pages. Still not a bad book. It was easy to read and understand. I was just looking for more information.

"This classic work on Mormonism, now with over 135,000 copies in print, has been revised and expanded by the author. Major Mormon practices and beliefs are explained with thoroughly documented references to the original Mormon sources, and an extensive appendix discussing the Mormon doctrine of salvation has been added. Some of the chapters include: The Book of Mormon - Joseph Smith's or Gods?, The Truth About Adam-God, The One True Church, Mormon Salvation, The Mormon Heaven.

'Is it fair? Is it Christian to examine Joseph Smith and question Mormonism?' the author asks in the preface. 'It is both Christian and sensible to examine Joseph Smith because he claims to be a prophet of God, and we are told 'by their fruits ye shall know them.' The Book of Mormon...and the whole Mormon movement hinge entirely on this one basic question, 'Is Joseph Smith truly a prophet of God?'

Since its translation into 6 foreign languages, readers from 27 countries have commented on the effectiveness of this book as an evangelistic outreach to Mormons."
