War with the Remnant: The Hidden Narrative of Terrorism and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints
Author: Matthew Hughes
How did The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints become the number one target of anti-US terrorism in Latin America in the late 1980s and early 1990s? Could this happen again?
This enlightening publication investigates the spiritual origins of terrorism, ideologies and tactics involved in attacks targeting The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and the role of terrorism in the last days. Analysis and insights are based on evidence from a variety of sources, including declassified intelligence reports, foreign radio broadcasts and newspaper articles, church historical documents, and personal interviews with survivors and witnesses.
War with the Remnant, by discerning author Matthew Hughes, examines gospel truths in the previously unexplored arena of terrorism and fortifies faith in the face of fear. It is the first book to document contemporary terrorist attacks targeting The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and provide secular and spiritual insights regarding the Church’s past, present, and possible future encounters with terrorism.
This powerful book is an eye-opener that should be read and studied by anyone who values the freedom of choice.
