Praise for the Print Edition

[Ed Decker's] book is the soul of objectivity. He presents both sides of each topic—the Mormon position and the Biblical view (according to historic Christianity)—and supplies a generous amount of quotations from the sacred writings of both religions. It is an excellent resource for understanding the conflict between these faiths.

—Online reviewer

It is only once in a while that someone with real compassion for others comes forward with such a useful and excellent comparative work as this. . . Mr. Decker has a scholarly and well-informed approach to [Mormonism] and I strongly recommend. . . this masterpiece.
