This book by an ex-mormon gives a short, sweet, and gentle discussion of the "Book of Mormon" and how Mormon's feel about it. Anderson contrasts the "Book of Mormon" to the Bible and to other Mormon standard works. He points out that while the "Book of Mormon" is felt to be inspirational and instructive, it does not contain important Mormon doctrines. For these, you have to turn to the books entitled "Doctrine and Covenants" and "Pearl of Great Price". Anderson cautions that any criticism of the "Book of Mormon" will cause a Mormon to be defensive and they will likely use the "p" word (persecution). Merely to disagree and point out problems definitely does not meet the dictionary definition of persecution, but Anderson urges gentleness and sensitivity. The reader will find useful charts of the content of individual books and a timeline of events in the "Book of Mormon". There is also a chart of where to find important Mormon doctrines in "Doctrine and Covenants".
