This book is powerful! Using Biblical references Scott Thormaehlen defends Latter-Day Saint beliefs and has a goal to build bridges by seeking common ground between the different religions, and to clear up some of the misunderstandings known today. He broaches such topics as: Apostasy Christianity Polygamy Man's Potential The Afterlife Salvation The Book of Mormon The Restoration We need to "unite rather than divide honest seekers of truth"...so that we may "combat many social evils that threaten all religious institutions." This book is really good and opens your eyes to more of the teachings in the Bible that will give you "confidence to stand strong in the day of your defense." I LOVE the bold colors of the cover :)
