Overview

What do we do when someone of another faith asks us about Latter-day Saint beliefs and practices?  Do we sometimes wonder what to say or how best to say it?

 

If so, this timely book by Robert L. Millet, former dean of Religious education at Brigham Young University, offers welcome assistance.

 

First, he explores principles that can guide us in responding appropriately, whether the questioner is sincerely seeking truth or has less honorable motive.

 

Then Brother Millet suggests answers to more than forty challenging questions, including the following:

  • Are Latter-day Saints really Christian?
  • Do Latter-day Saints believe in grace?
  • Why do Latter-day Saints build temples?
  • How can Latter-day Saints justify believing in additional scripture?
  • What is the Latter-day Saint doctrine of marriage?
  • How could a group claiming to be Christian deny blacks the priesthood for so long?
  • What is the growing appeal of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints?

 

Getting at the Truth will help us build bridges of understanding as we reach out to individuals of other faiths, whether family members, friends, neighbors, or associates in our communities.
