This book was AWFULI am no particular fan of the Mormons, neither am I a particular detractor. They have their faith and others have theirs, and I can respect that, even if I think the particulars of any of them are dubious at best.But this book - The God Makers - was so badly written as to actually do less to discredit the Mormons, than to rally people to them. It was basically a few anecdotal accounts that are rehashed and drug out to the point of redundancy. And then capped off with a series [...]
This is the harshest and nastiest book about Mormonism I have ever read. "I loved it!" Sometimes the truth hurts.I've probably read at least 20 books dealing with Mormonism and it's claims. They all say pretty much the same thing: Joseph Smith was a typical cult leader who wanted to be God, or next to God, or more important than Godhe ended up being more important to Jesus in the eyes of many Mormons. Although I think Joseph just really like women.That polygamy thing just never gets old does it? [...]
Just before Jesus was crucified he was questioned by the high priest. The high priest wanted to know what Jesus had been teaching. His response was, “I spake openly to the world; I ever taught in the synagogue, and in the temple, whither the Jews always resort; and in secret have I said nothing.” (John 18:19,20 KJV) Jesus conducted his entire ministry in public. He did not teach in secret. Yet, Mormonism is a religion full of secrecy. If Jesus taught in public and held no secrets then why is [...]
The God Makers is an older book, but the subject matter hasn't changed, so it's worth your time if you're curious as to how the Mormon Church operates. I first read this book many years ago because I was working with someone sho practiced the Mormon faith and I was curious about Joseph Smith and his, umm, interesting, ideas. This book easily explains the theology, secret rituals and goals of the Mormon Church.
The book was written to sell, not to reveal truth.
"Religious Pornography" is one of the phrases used to describe the original edition of this book. It is meant to stir up the fears and misconceptions that many uninformed people have of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It does not, however, provide any insight as to the true nature of the Church, it's doctrine or its members. This book belongs in the fiction section or better yet, in the dumpster. The authors attempt to twist and pervert some of the most sacred aspects of the fai [...]
What is funniest about this book is the writers, portraying themselves as Christians and Mormons as non-Christians, blasting Mormons for believing wacky stories about Jesus Christ coming to North America and burying gold plates for Joseph Smith to find. Like that's less plausible than the Red Sea parting.
The premise of the book was to convince the reader that Mormonism isn't Christianity, using chapter after chapter of arguments like "Mormons believe X, but the Bible says Y!!! OMG!!! They are going to burn in hell!!!" Interesting for some, perhaps, but I wanted something more scholarly.
This was a lousy book with poor support. It is based solely on emotional appeal, and I found almost all of their claims to be false or twisted into a half-truth. The author quotes information from his own work as if that were his research.
Reading this book 10 years ago led me to believe there was no legitimate criticism of the LDS church. It's so full of half-truths, fiction, and speculative theology that it does more harm than good. The audience is clearly evangelicals who have an axe to grind. Yes, there are problems with the theology. Is Ed Decker the person exposing the church? No. Any of the dozen or so well-written biographies by legitimate historians are doing the work for Decker. This book is just religious pornography.
Very intresting somewhat complex look at the mormon religion and chruch. Anyone who knows or is friends with people of the mormon faith would be intrested in understanding what they base their beliefs on.
full of histrionics. While there is a little bit of fact in this book, most of it is quotes taken completely out of context and overly dramatic prose. Definitely not the book to read to learn about what Mormons believe as compared to mainline protestant Christianity.
Good intro into the history, intricacies and inner workings (read: bizarro rituals/beliefs) of the Mormon church.
If you have ever or will ever deal with LDS/Mormons in defending your faith and/or ministering/witnessing, you need to read this book!!!
Having read a few books with some Mormon history, I had my interest piqued enough to read “The God Makers”. On a personal level, I am a white man with a past which includes interracial relationships. Therefore, I am deeply disturbed by the prophetic assertions of Brigham Young regarding “race mixing”. Young called for death on the spot by blood atonement for this transgression; hey holy man, get that knife away from my throat. The black race will eventually be redeemed, but only after be [...]
I'm at a loss on how to review this book it's a hard, painful, heartbreaking read. Having been an active "temple going" member for 10 years, there were some statements that were a little emotional and overdramatized. That's not to say the journal writings and historical quotes weren't accurate. Some of the recent LDS church essays are sharing historical events as fact now which in the past were taught as Anti literature, the information is out there if people really want to find it. In my opinio [...]
More of a book on Christian apologetics than an in-depth analysis of the theology of mainstream Mormonism, this book is a repetitive collection of unconnected bits and pieces of LDS dogma, arranged in a sensationalistic manner in order to tie Mormonism to the occult. I was hoping for a more thoughtful and academic discussion of the origin of Mormon beliefs and mythology; what I got instead was a laundry list of Joseph Smith's foibles and the rickety foundation upon which his church is built. Lot [...]
I've only gotten about a quarter of the way through this book so far, but I'm shocked and appalled at the arrogance and audacity of the leaders of the Mormon "church". It's going to take me a long time to finish this one because it's not easy reading. However, I do think it is worth reading to know what a scam this "religion" really is. Very disturbing.Have read a little more, and I think I need to stop! It just makes me angry. The Mormon leaders are leading people astray, all in the name of Jes [...]
I found this book to be most helpful in understanding the Mormon cult, the only thing that prevents me from rating it five stars is the fact that I found the writing style to be a bit hard to follow and I wish Decker and Hunt provided more material on how to talk to Mormons about Christianity. Regardless, this book is still a must read for everyone to understand Mormonism.
An expose that shed light on the more secret aspects of the Mormon faith. It may be a bit abbrasive and has a definite adgenda anyone interested in the ceremonies and temple ritual things this is a good book to start with.
A great resource for the researcher and enthusiast.Read for personal apologetic research.I found this book's contents helpful and inspiring - number rating relates to the book's contribution to my needs.
Have in friends who are Mormon and watching the new show on tv about polygamy USA, a friend told me about this book, this book is about what the Mormon church really believes. Let me say I was shocked an could not put it down, a must read.
Much better than the second book God Makers II. It had a lot more specific facts about the Mormon Church. It fell down like the other follow up book in that it preached too much to the point of irritating me.
This is a great read. I think anyone who belongs to this faith or prehapshs thinking about it should read this book. I could not put it down
Beins one of the books that are forbidden for LDS to read, I read it while I was leaving that church. It was a deception. I still don't remember why mormons can'r read it
This book was very informative, however I already knew most of what this book was about. The link between the Mormon Church and the Free Masons is interesting.
EYE OPENING, a factual account of the birth of the Mormon "religion" and how it intends to spread around the globe.
If you are curious about Mormonism, this is a must read. Great book to have on hand when the missionaries stop by.
well, What can you expect from the Antis?but tell brethren, the issues can be handled in a polite way to fear hehehe
