Description

From back cover:

More than a belief system, Mormonism is a cultural identity that shapes the worldview, values, and lifestyles of those involved in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. In this book, Ross Anderson seeks to help Christians engage in faith-sharing relationships with Mormon neighbors and friends by giving insights into Mormon life and culture.

In addition to discussion questions for individuals and small groups, black and white photographs and charts, and an appendix that includes "Are Mormons Christians?" and "Should I Vote for a Mormon?"—Anderson explains how Latter-day Saints see themselves and others around them, giving insight into why people join the LDS Church and why many eventually leave.

Understanding Your Mormon Neighbor concludes with encouragement to build interfaith friendships with both confidence and sensitivity and suggestions for how to share the grace of God wisely in the context of those relationships.
