An introduction to what Mormons believe and how Christians can reach out to them with the gospel.
Part of the Engaging with series.
Many people see Mormons as just another branch of the Christian church, and to be admired, perhaps, for their family life, morality, and upright culture.
But the theology and spirituality of this cult are very far from an orthodox biblical understanding of true saving faith. And yet Christians are often fearful of engaging in conversations about the gospel with Mormons, knowing that there are suspicions and complex issues that lie beneath the surface.
This short book is designed to help both Christians and whole churches to understand more about the beliefs, mindset, and motivations of those who are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter Day Saints (Mormons), and to reach out to them with the good news of the gospel.
Written at a level that everyone can understand, this book emphasizes the importance of forming loving, honest, and open relationships as part of the way we engage with our Mormon friends and neighbors, and with those who may come knocking at our doors.
