Do Mormons believe in the Bible?
Are Mormons biblical Christians?
Does Mormonism have any biblical foundation?
These are serious questions, and they deserve serious answers”¦The Bible is common ground for all Christians. Therefore, we sought to discover whether the Bible, standing alone, could sustain Mormon theology and practice. We found that it does.
Last year, Eric Shuster wrote Catholic Roots, Mormon Harvest about his conversion from Catholicism to Mormonism. Now, he and coauthor Charles Sale bring us The Biblical Roots of Mormonism, a discovery of Mormon doctrines as they are revealed in the Bible. Each chapter delves into a specific belief, such as the Godhead, premortal life, and revelation. Quoting hundreds of Old and New Testament passages, the authors show how the Bible alone can sustain Mormon theology and practice. This incredibly well-researched guide provides fresh insights about the Bible as each page reveals a new connection to the Mormon beliefs. Perfect for believers, investigators, and skeptics alike, this book will inspire and astonish as it lays out the biblical foundation of Mormonism.
Latter-day Saints reading this book will gain fresh insights into the Bible and how to learn and teach from it. Their testimonies will be invigorated as they discover the depth and breadth of their biblical roots. Non-Mormon readers will be inspired and skeptics will be astonished as each page reveals some new branch of the biblical roots of Mormonism. Finally, and perhaps most important, the ties between Latter-day Saints, other Christians, and non-believers will be strengthened.
Praise for The Biblical Roots of Mormonism:
“Latter-day Saint readers [will gain] a deeper understanding of the Bible and how it supports their beliefs. Non-Mormon readers will discover how and why Latter-day Saints revere the Bible as the word of God.”
-John Webster, LDS Resources
