Really Inside Mormonism: Confessions of a Mere Latter-day Christian
Robert D. Starling
After 30 years of responding to negative statements and articles, Robert has gathered together many sources, beliefs and thoughts to publish a 450 page book. I find it interesting pursuing many paths on Mormonism from a "Latter-day Christian." Some tops:
- The the Godmakers
- Ed Decker
- Modern Prophets
- One true Church, many more...
- Book of Mormon
- Tight translations
- Loose translation
- Who supplied the words?
- Brass plates
- Isaiah passages
- Council of 50
- Relief Society
- More Effective Apologetics
