Item description for Reasoning from the Scriptures with the Mormons by Ron Rhodes & Marian Bodine...
Overview For believers who have wanted to share more openly and knowledgeably with Mormon neighbors or the missionaries at their door, this book will help believers thoughtfully consider the main points of Mormonism and respond with understanding that comes from having reasoned out the issues for themselves. This is the ultimate hands-on reference guide, equipping believers to share the true gospel with the Mormons.
Have the Mormons ever left you unsure of what to say? Their arguments are convincing, their teachings seem indisputable, and their stand on what they believe is firm. How can you effectively communicate to the Mormons that their gospel does not match up with the Bible? One of the best ways is to ask penetrating questions.
Cult experts Ron Rhodes and Marian Bodine will help you understand the main points of Mormonism and discover where it falls short of God's truth. They then equip you to ask strategic questions that challenge...
the Mormon claim to be the only true church
the reliability of Mormon prophets
the authenticity of the Book of Mormon
Jesus' supposed visit to ancient America
the Mormon view of God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit
and much more
You'll find Reasoning from the Scriptures with the Mormons a valuable guide to responding to Mormons with confidence

Reviews - What do customers think about Reasoning from the Scriptures with the Mormons?
Very Disappointed Jan 2, 2008
I bought this book hoping that it would reveal some of the nonsense that Mormons believe and their practices. What it actually does is to compare Mormonism with your basic Christianity, ie. Baptists, what-have-you. It tries to show how non-Morman Christianity is better. To my mind and, I would argue, the minds of any thinking person, both Mormonism and basic Christianity are bogus concepts made up of lies, myths and fairytales. (I feel the same way about all religions.) This book proved useless to me since I want the truth and it is not in this book, not in the Book of Mormon and not in the New Testament. Just what silly practices might Romney practice if he becomes president? This book was a complete waste of my money.
Very Enlightening Stuff Oct 30, 2007
I found this to be a very interesting book. Without question, there is lots of food for thought here. For me, Mormonism is a fascinating topic, and anyone interested in learning about it will want to read this volume.

The truth will set you free Oct 13, 2007
We need more books just like this. New Testament scripture warns about false prophets, false religions. Scripture says " even if an angel appears before you proclaiming another gospel, let them be called accursed................. People, read your New Testament in MODERN english.Then maybe you can begin to know what ancient scripture reveals. Understand that Mormons have been lied to. They themselves do not know scripture only The Book of Mormon. Books like this are meant to help set others free.
Excellent work, while being logical and loving Jan 2, 2007
I've read this book and I use it as a study guide in how to reach out to Mormons with the truth of the gospel and the Bible. Rhodes does not "preach hate" as some think, and just because some people don't like what they read in the book, theologically speaking (i.e. Mormons), doesn't mean that the book isn't true or biblically accurate. This book is quite accurate as far as I have seen and read, and I've read it more than once. The Bible doesn't call us to only tell people things that they like to hear. The truth hurts sometimes, but if it leads to eternal life, it is needed sometimes. He has sections on what correct biblical doctrine is, while showing what LDS theology actually teaches, using their own authorities and scriptures to do so. The rebuttals to the arguments commonly used to bolster the Mormon position are methodically looked and and responded to from the Old and New Testaments. I have Rhodes other books from the "Reasoning From The Scriptures With..." series, and they are all equally good. Incidentally, I am amazed at how many people think that just because Rhodes is correcting their theology, he should stop, because he's "hurting their feelings." Which is more important: having "good feelings" or having the truth that leads to eternal life?
MISLEADING... Dec 26, 2006
I purchased this book as an Christmas gift for my dad (a Mormon) thinking that this book was going to be geared towards Mormons and spirtually uplifting. He was deaply hurt and offended from the content of this book. The book ridiculed his faith as a Mormon and that was not my intent. The search featured recommended this book, I am very disappointed and humilated. I will be returning both titles...
