Open and non-apologetic,
This review is from: This Is My Doctrine: The Development of Mormon Theology (Hardcover)
Although Harrell is a Mormon he provides a very open and non-apologetic survey of the basic doctrines of Mormonism. After the introduction, each chapter takes a basic doctrine of Mormonism and traces the history of that doctrine through the Old and New Testaments (drawing on a wide range of scholarship), nineteenth century theology in the USA and through various phases of the development of doctrine within the LDS church. Contradictions within the development of doctrine in Mormonism are neither avoided nor explained - they are just set out to be judged by the reader. This bool is well worth reading by anyone wishing to see how doctrine has evolved on the LDS church and how that doctrine relates to other Christian perspectives.
