4.0 out of 5 stars Battery acid on shallow orthodox Mormon testimonies, 8 April 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Studies of the Book of Mormon: The Development of Mormon Priesthood (Paperback)
The great defender of the Mormon faith in the first decades of this century, church theologian B.H. Roberts takes a serious look at evidence for the other side. Never intended to be read by the public, and quite possibly written as a sort of devils playbook, nevertheless Roberts presents explanations of the origin of the sacred Mormon scripture, the Book of Mormon, that generate thought, doubt, and debate decades later. Read this and you will never sleep comfortably through Sunday school discussions that alledge that no reasonable arguments have been raised against the Book of Mormon again, ever. Madsen is simply the messenger of Roberts' ideas and does an excellent job. Roberts clear, decisive, and powerful arguments stand by themselves. This book will force most who read it to retreat into complete mysticism with head deeply planted in the sand, or a complete reassessment of their religious faith. Not for the faint hearted or the seeker of comforting fables, nonetheless it is a work that every thinking Mormon will have to come to terms with sooner or later. I pray for church leaders with the courage to help us in this quest.
