When Jesus said, "For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks," He expressed a simple truth that man generally expresses with words what he believes to be true. So what have Mormons generally believed to be true when it comes to their faith? The answer to this question is not always easy to answer. By topically arranging thousands of statements made by Mormon leaders, educators, apologists, and lay members, In Their Own Words hopes to assist those who desire to better understand this fascinating religion.
"In Their Own Words is an invaluable resource for anyone who desires to know more about Mormon teachings. Organized under topics from Aaronic Priesthood to Zion, quotes from standard works, church leaders, and other sources are accurately given."

"Bill McKeever has compiled a compendium of the teachings of the LDS Church quoting both church authorities and lay members. This extraordinary collection is a good place to start a friendly discussion on Mormonism. Just about any topic should strike up a conversation."
