The Mormon Mirage provides clarity
The author gives a factual, unfiltered account of the life of Joseph Smith, the founder of the Mormon Church, as well as the "cleaned-up and unrealistic picture" of him that is presented to and accepted by the LDS people.
Latayne shares how the teachings of the Book of Mormon contradict not only the teachings of the Bible but also of itself! Throughout her book she cites Bible passages that Mormons take out of context to support the Book of Mormon and other Mormon documents. Latayne also points out the total lack of archaeological support for the Book of Mormon and lists several former LDS supporters who conclude that the Book of Mormon is a fictional product of the mind of Joseph Smith.
After reading this amazing book I gained an increased understanding of the fallacies of the Mormon Church. Latayne's arguments are clearly laid out and her abundant sources of factual information are well documented. I highly recommend The Mormon Mirage to anyone who has even the slightest curiosity about Mormonism, is involved in Mormonism, or who has acquaintances, friends, or family members participating in it.
