I am a former Mormon. This blog includes posts I've made to various discussion boards on the subject of Mormonism. It is not intended to promote the Mormon faith. Those who participate in the faith and prefer not to have their faith challenged are discouraged from reading. All readers are welcome to comment regardless of viewpoint. Note for clarity: my comments are always in black typeface.
LDS, how many members of the church has read a marvelous work and a wonder? —witnessofJesus
it was one of the 2 books sent to me by my uncles when he first taught me about the church. the other was the book of mormon.
do new converts still read this book. is it a classic. should it still be used?
I read it when I was an LDS missionary, seems like I enjoyed it. I just remember the conversation about how it's got to be either the Mormons or the Catholics, and that the Protestants haven't got a leg to stand on. I must have internalized that message, because after leaving Mormonism I never even considered joining another Christian faith.
