Richard Mouw, a Christian who has done perhaps the most to reach out to the Mormon community in recent years, provides the Foreword and Afterword and was instrumental in crafting the issues and questions addressed in the book. His heart for the lost is evident in his writing, and his wish to bridge the gap in communication between "us" and "them" is expressed in a most Christian way.
"Through this book Bob Millet has given the Christian world a gift of clarity. He lays out a thoroughly Mormon understanding of Jesus-centered salvation and draws the points of connection to classical Christian teaching. Yet he does not at all hide or diminish the fundamental differences in our understandings." - David Neff, editor of Christianity Today

JenJohnsonAge: 35-44Gender: female1 Stars Out Of 5MisleadingSeptember 2, 2013JenJohnsonAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 3Value: 1Meets Expectations: 1Milliet is a Mormon apologist. As such his goal is to make Christians accept Mormonism as just another Christian denomination. To do this, he misleads, omits key doctrines, and outright lies about LDS teaching and belief. The claim of common ground is often used by the LDS in order to dismiss those who speak out - and speak the truth - about Mormonism. Once you really study Mormonism, you know there is no common ground. As a former Mormon myself, now a Christian, I found Millet to be true to form and completely deceptive is his portrayal of LDS beliefs.
Darren5 Stars Out Of 5July 12, 2010DarrenFinally, we have a fantastic resource in a book written about the Mormons by a renowned theologian of the LDS Church. As you read this book, you will find that when it all boils down to it -do Mormons believe and have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and trust in his atoning power. Yes! There are other things that are different, but bottom-line, Mormons believe in and trust in Jesus Christ. Interestingly, the more lack of tolerance that we have toward one another, are we really accomplishing the will of God. Who knows, there might be many wonderful things that Mormons can learn from other Christian faiths, but there are many things in which others can learn from those of the Mormon faith. We are so quick to judge; there is only one judge - Jesus Christ. Who's to say through our own kindness and understanding of one another, that perhaps we might have even a greater sense of unity against the wiles of the devil who is the real enemy. Perhaps the day will come when we can all love one another without any ugly feelings towards one another. I love all of my Christian brothers and sisters whether Southern Baptist, Methodist, Catholic, Non denomination, and yes, Mormon. From St. Luke 9:49-50: "Master," said John, "we saw a man driving out demons in your name and we tried to stop him, because he is not one of us." "Do not stop him," Jesus said, "for whoever is not against you is for you."BlessingsDarren Coleman
Julia Cutler1 Stars Out Of 5March 23, 2010Julia CutlerWhat makes anyone think that if we gave the book no stars we didn't read it? As a former Mormon I was frightened by all the fallacies in the book. Robert Millet has MUCH to hide, and the Mormon Church is very good about hiding things they are afraid or ashamed of. (ie, their well guarded "vaults" in the Utah mountains, where is kept all the shameful effluvia of their past!) The LDS church has better "spin doctors" than the US President does. Don't be fooled, especially if you are a Christian who knows little or nothing about the Mormons. This book is beyond dangerous to the uninformed. Millet isn't just "defending his faith", he's using lies to draw the unknowing into Mormonism's quagmire. For the record, of course LDS members will read and buy the book! It's pro Mormon! Since most of them don't think for themselves anyway, ("when the prophet speaks the thinking's been done...???) of course, like sheep, they would buy the book!
Rick5 Stars Out Of 5December 17, 2009RickIts laughable how zero star people use a review as a soapbox to ding CB.com for selling this book or the LDS Church in general. Its obvious they hadn't read it. Its rejected because its about the LDS Church and written by a member with no ax to grind.A person may choose not to believe LDS doctrine but they can still read accurate information about it. Ive read books on dozens of religions. Im interested in learning what they believe. Im not looking to convert, I want to know and understand their teachings to improve my knowledge. I try to read books on the subjects written by actual believers, to better find out what they do believe and not just what someone else says they believe. (The someone else is likely to get the doctrine explanation wrong anyhow.) The main point is to reject this book outright because it was written by a Mormon instead of someone like a Baptist preacher is pretty silly. Its like going to a Ford car dealer and asking why you should buy a Chevrolet! Youre not too likely to get accurate facts.One reviewer said the book was full of lie after lie about the LDS doctrines. The real question here is,What would Robert Millet have to gain by lying about LDS Church teachings? This book is openly sold to LDS Church members. If it was full of lies, it certainly wouldnt be purchased by any faithful LDS. Ive seen it in both LDS and non-LDS bookstores for years.Now that Ive been on my soapbox as well, Ill comment on the book. It is pretty good. It doesnt cover every aspect of the LDS Church, but it does touch on many subjects that are commonly and grossly miss-understood by Non-Mormons. This book at least gives them some LDS doctrinal starting point. It demonstrates how poorly much of the world understands the LDS Churchs teachings and how radically bad and miss-informing many anti-Mormon books are. The purpose of this book is not for conversion, but to inform and provide a better understanding or intellectual curiosity.
Julia Cutler1 Stars Out Of 5June 18, 2009Julia CutlerI am a former "temple Mormon" I was one for over forty years, before I left it's false teachings and found Jesus Christ. I actually bought this book from CBD, and after receiving it was appalled at how pro-Mormon the book is. There were no straight facts about Mormonism in that book, just the gloss they expect all Christians to accept about them. It was one lie after another. Just for the record, I returned the book to CBD and requested a refund. oh, FYI..if you want to know the truth without the gloss and lies Mormons make about Mormonism, read Ed Decker's The GodMakers". That's truth about how dark and evil the Mormon cult really is.
