The Fast Facts on... series combines thorough social and cultural analysis of cults with a comparison of cultic theology to Christianity, and offers one of the best resources for those who interact with cults and cult members on a regular basis. And if Ankerberg and Weldon are correct in their analysis of Mormonism, the number of people who interact with Mormonism or Mormons will likely be very high, very soon. They use an insightful question and answer format to offer all Christians accurate, factual information about one of the fastest growing new religious movements (known to many as cults).

Ankerberg and Weldon (Fast Facts on Defending Your Faith) look at the history and growth of Mormonism, and they take a serious look at the Book of Mormon, one of the primary sources of doctrine in Mormonism. Then they look at contradictions and false prophecies which appear in Mormon literature and doctrine. Then they compare and contrast Mormon theology with Christian theology, and they critique the Mormon claims to be a Christian organization. They also take a look at the state of modern Mormon scholarship and apologetics, and offer a concise doctrinal summary of Mormon beliefs and articles of faith.
