Item description for Answering Mormons' Questions by Bill McKeever...
Overview Clear, biblical answers to thirty-eight cleverly designed questions Mormons ask Christians.
Mormonism is one of the most American of religious movements and one of the most rapidly growing of all non-Christian cults around the world. Though today the Mormon church numbers in the millions, few Latter-day Saints realize just how unbiblical and inconsistent their doctrine is.
From his in-depth research of Mormonism, Bill McKeever takes the puzzling and often perplexing questions that Mormons are taught to ask Christians and answers them from the Bible in a simplified, straightforward manner. It provides quick and easy access for lay-Christians to answer the actual Mormon visiting their homes or through other contact.
Question ranging form the inspiration of the Book of Mormon to whether Mormonism's fast growth is proof of its truthfulness are examined in the clear light of God's Word, the Bible.

The Honest Truth Jul 6, 2007
All of the attacks against this book are from mormons, even the ones who lie and say they are not. Mormonism requires confrontation as the author's style suggests, other wise they say "lets just agree to disagree". I have in my library the mormon quad plus "achieving a celestial Marriage" and "gospel principals" and this book is a welcome addition. "One Nation Under Gods" is the best on the sordid history of the morman church and another good read. My heart goes out to the many good people who are seeking God but end up in a church built by men, the lds morman faith, and who will spend eternity locked outside the gates of Heaven.

Mormon's questions unanswered Nov 2, 2006
I thought from the title this would be a thoughtful consideration of mormonism, but instead found it to be a rabid anti-mormon harangue, full of distortions and outright untruths. This is a very bad book and could seriously mislead anyone desiring serious information about mormon history and beliefs. I hope such people will go elsewhere for information. This author has a hatred which is difficult to understand.
Weak and out-dated Oct 13, 2006
McKeever is perhaps one of the worst critics who operates against the LDS Church, often seen in his incessant use of scriptural eisegesis and fallacoius argumentations against the Mormon faith.
It would take many pages to detail all the mistakes in this book. However, one of them deals with the issue of Acts 2:38 and the question of baptismal regeneration.
As with many of his co-religionists, McKeever argues that the this verse is not actually conducive to baptismal regneration. Indeed, others who embrace Evangelical Protestantism, such as Ron Rhodes and Norman Geisler, argue that the word "for" really means something to the effect that one is baptised as a result of their pre-existing salvation. However, this notwtihstanding, the preposition in Greek, eis, when followed by an accusative, as it does in this verse, means _into_. Therefore, the proper understanding of this verse is that one is baptised INTO a remission of their sins and into the Lord Jesus Christ, wholly consistent with the Latter-day Saint interpretation, as with the vast majority of the Christian world, as well as early Christianity, such as Justin Marty in his apologetic writings to Trypho.
Much more could be said about the inaccuracies in this one section of the text, and the other chapters in the book. However, this brief example should be suffice to reveal that a knowledgeable Latter-day Saint will not be challenged by this text, and, as with all anti-Mormon "literature," is really for the already converted or those who know next to nothing about "Mormonism."

Strawticus meets a flamethrower Jul 4, 2005
This is just straw-man arguments against a non-existent Mormon neighbor.
From Chapter 1 to 38, it is just one misleading approach after another. Starting in 1, the chapter is entitled "We [Mormons] never criticize other churches and their beliefs. Why do you pick on the Mormon church and what it believes?" They then quote from the First Vision wherein Joseph Smith is told all churches are wrong, and to join none of them.
As far as official statements go, that is the only statement clearly aimed at other Churches, and it is the basis of why Mormons don't affiliate with other churches. But then Mr. Bill goes on to quote 4 talks from Journal of Discourses, a publication intended solely for 19th Century Mormons, and one denounced work, the Seer, which has no connection to anything officially LDS. He ends by quoting out of date clips removed from the temple ceremony and quotes, without any context, a verse from the Book of Mormon.
Every denomination has a reason why it exists separately from other denominations. That is their own "First Vision Statement". But the LDS Church is completely focused on why to believe in the LDS belief structure, and never resorts, ever, to criticizing the other faiths of the world. Mormons teach all churches have some truth, and statements about the errors of other churches are very limited. We don't need to tear at others to build the kingdom of God.
Every chapter is like this. A disjointed assertion followed by a usually wild set of citations of authorities. Baptism for the dead was not a Christian practice. Men are not really called gods in Psalm 82. Books are not missing from the Bible. Praying for truth is unBiblical. As a fan of the New Testament, these kinds of false assertions are like teeing up a golf ball for a drive. It just doesn't get any easier to refute.
Maybe I should give this book 5 stars when I think about it. This is one book I hope every non-LDS person reads because they will then talk to their Mormon neighbors about all the things they now "know". And the Mormons will gain thousands of new members. It is just not good that anyone should be exposed to so much falsehood in one setting.
