Mormonism 101: Examining the Religion of the Latter-day Saints

What makes Mormonism different from traditional Christianity?  Do the differences matter?  And if so, how can a traditional Christian believer most effectively explain those differences to their LDS friends? An enlightening journey through basic Mormon theology, Bill McKeever and Eric Johnson’s volume, Mormonism 101: Examining the Religion of the Latter-day Saints, is an honest and well-researched volume designed to help answer these questions!

McKeever and Johnson take their readers on an informative and enlightening journey through LDS history as seen through Mormon eyes.  Utilizing accepted Scripture and the teachings of the LDS church’s apostles and prophets they add scope to the Christian’s understanding of what their Mormon friends mean when they talk about concepts like “grace”, “salvation”, and “eternal life”.  Carefully comparing and contrasting LDS and traditional Christian views on subjects as varied as the nature of God and humanity, scripture, salvation, temple ordinances, and revelation, they provide believers with a basis for dialogue.  Then, through a series of “Witnessing Tips” placed after each chapter, McKeever and Johnson help their readers better understand how to apply the information they’ve learned in real-life situations: sharing the differences while demonstrating both love and respect.

A great primer for those interested in better understanding the LDS faith and effectively sharing their own, Mormonism 101: Examining the Religion of the Latter-day Saints is available in paperback for $19.80 or on Kindle for $12.10.
