Since its inception, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (the Mormons) has attempted to legitimize itself by linking itself to Christianity. But is there really any connection between Mormonism and Christianity? Ed Decker and Dave Hunt say no. They argue, in fact, that Mormonism has much more to do with pagan, self-deification beliefs than with the truths revealed in Christianity.

The God Makers was first published in 1984, and this revised edition appeared in 1997. Since its first edition, it has attracted a lot of attention, from both inside and outside Mormonism. And while many leaders in the Mormon church are vehemently upset about the claims made in the book, none have yet been able to disprove any of the book's claims.

What kind of claims do Decker and Hunt make? The most important is the revelation that Mormonism is founded on the belief that humans can become gods. God, according to official Mormon doctrine, was once a human who went on to become a god. And even though this heretical concept was discussed and disputed by Christians in their early history, Mormonism still claims its connection to Christianity. Official Mormon teaching states that the founder of Mormonism, Joseph Smith, received a revelation from angels saying that the Christian church was now apostate, after the true Christian message was distorted in the first century of the church. Smith's revelations are thought to be a restoration of true Christian beliefs, so Mormonism confidently claims to be the true Christian church.

These two claims, that we can become gods and that a new revelation to the church was necessary, are easy to dispute biblically. Yet because Smith and his followers have couched their pagan philosophy in Christian terms, they continue to maintain their legitimacy. And the Mormons have put on a very respectable face, showing themselves as supporters of family and moral decency. But Decker and Hunt remind us that behind the public image arepotentially dangerous and destructive doctrines. And they expose some of the inconsistencies in Mormon thought and doctrine. Thus, their book continues to have a phenomenal impact, particular with those dissatisfied with the Mormon church.

Many people think that Mormonism is just another branch of Christianity. Interestingly enough, however, that is something that official Mormon doctrine has never taught. Joseph Smith, founder of Mormonism, actually thought all Christianity was apostate, and that the Mormons were the only true church. And other official Mormon doctrine (such as it is), seems to say the same thing. This is why Ethan Harris chose to compare official Mormon teaching with the Bible, hoping to show how different from Christianity Mormonism really is. In The Gospel According to Joseph Smith, he places Mormon doctrine side-by-side with Christian doctrine to offer a reliable, informative comparison like no other.

Harris offers a compelling introduction to the history of Mormonism, and then looks at the primary works of Mormonism, including the writings of Smith and the writings of the Mormon Prophets. He shows what the official Mormon doctrine of God is, and explains the doctrine of baptism for the dead, and the origin of sin. He also looks at Mormon doctrines of creation. Throughout this book, Harris compares the Book of Mormon to the Bible on various doctrines. He also offers an ethical argument against Mormonism, along with the testimonies of those who have left Mormonism for Christianity.

Harris is civil toward Mormonism, and shows great respect for Mormon thinkers. His decision to use only primary sources stems from this respect, and results in a fair and accurate assessment of Mormon doctrine. Whether you are a Mormon with questions about your faith, or you are a Christian with friends of loved ones in Mormonism, you will likely appreciate this book. The differences between Christianity and Mormonism are clearly shown, and documented from primary sources for each religion. Neither a diatribe, nor polemic in nature, The Gospel According to Joseph Smith showcases Harris' passion to reveal truth, as he allows the sources for each religion to speak for themselves. This book is destined to become one of the best resources for effective ministry to Mormons.

Mormons and Evangelicals don't often get along very well. They often set about trying to convert one another, considering the faith the other holds as defective in some critical way. Unfortunately, much of what they say about one another simply isn't true. False stereotypes on both sides prevent genuine communication. Having discovered this sad state of affairs, Craig Blomberg, a committed Evangelical scholar, and Stephen Robinson, a committed Mormon scholar, set out to listen to one another and to ferret out the agreements and disagreements between them. In the conversation that develops, you will read what each believes about key theological issues- (1) the nature and bounds of Scripture, (2) the nature of God and Deification, (3) the person of Christ and the Trinity, and (4) the essentials of salvation-and see how they interact with one another. What they agree on may surprise you. In the end, however, you can judge for yourself just how wide the divide between them is. 228 pages, softcover from Intervarsity Press.
