Description

From back cover:

Paul Douglas was born in Ireland and emigrated to Canada when he was five years of age shortly after his parents joined the LDS Church. His family settled in Edmonton, Alberta, which at that time, consisted of one Branch. The Branch President was N. Eldon Tanner who later became an Apostle himself. Paul has been married to one wife for forty-eight years and they have five children and nine grandchildren. A high priest, he has held Stake and Ward callings, his favorite teaching the Gospel Doctrine class.

Professionally, Paul founded a multinational management training company in 1975 which has offices in the United States and Canada. He holds several degrees in business administration including a B.Com, and Ph.D. as well as a MBA from the University of Alberta where he taught in the Faculty of Business. Paul is a citizen of Canada, the United States, Ireland and the United Kingdom.


The Mormon Church is an immensely wealthy, powerful and secretive organization, seeking the time and treasure of sincere, honest people who are often no match for the Church's well-oiled PR machine.

Many members today hunger for honest answers to the many troubling issues that they are becoming increasingly aware of, but the LDS Church itself provides them with only starvation rations.

In this book, Dr. Douglas discusses the greatest challenges to the Mormon Church's truth claims as well as provides the most cogent defenses presented by her 'Apostles' and her apologists.
