Product Description

The Mormon Church, both its modern variations and its historical roots, are examined in this comprehensive tome. Information relevant to the 2008 United States Presidential elections is included, along with deeper material on the people, events and documents behind this large and influential cult. Providing an in-depth analysis of the history, rituals and structure, the Ostlings point out the ahistoricity of the Book of Mormon, the secrecy surrounding the church, the shadiness of its early history and some of its similarities to Islam (another polygamous off-shoot of Christianity led by a self-proclaimed prophet). Detailed research, documentation of facts and a discerning eye uncover this vast deception being conducted in the name of Jesus Christ while many Americans remain ignorant of it.
