Description

From back cover:

Mitt Romney's run for President of the United States created enormous interest in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS). In spite of massive media focus during the so-called Mormon Moment, coverage was often shallow and misleading, with few reporters digging in deep enough to deal with evidence that the Mormon Church is in a deep crisis. Significant membership decline is occurring as evidence mounts about lies, fraud, criminality and deception through the entire history of Mormonism.

In Mormon Crisis Jim Beverley deals with major issues about Joseph Smith, the first LDS prophet. He provides a sustained critique of Mormon Scripture, examines flaws in the LDS understanding of Church leadership, and probes unique doctrines and practices, including the secret temple ceremonies. The book offers a serious indictment of the LDS belief system but also presents a way out of the current crisis facing one of America's most famous and controversial religions.
