i have read a lot of books on this subject and i think this is definitely the best introduction to the subject i have come across. highly recommended.
I am stunned by how useful this book is. I would recommend it to any one who is thinking about being a member or who has already become one.
The book is full of sterling facts presented in a manner that is quite exciting. Details of some of the themes are thought provoking, challenging, controversial and the book never misses a beat. There are details here that I was in the dark about. This book has brought them to the surface and gems they are too!
I could not put the book down for very long. It was on and off the shelf and will be because the book I think should have been made an essential buy by the church!! I will reread it again and again.
I learnt more here than I did in one year of investigators classes (sunday school at a meeting house). BUY IT you will not regret it. Would make a remarkable gift.
