Mormons An Open Book What you really want to know Written By A Mormon-Anthony Sweat

I was really excited to read this when Deseret sent me a press release a few months ago.  With Our Church being under a microscope these few months, especially with Mitt Romney running for President and now as our Republican Nominee, it is great to have this published, so as to give the public a true picture of who we are and who Mitt Romney is and stands for.  Since I've had this remarkably well researched and well written book on us Mormons for several months, I've had great opportunities to share The Gospel.

This book has a very plain white cover with just the title, with the author listed on the inside.  I liked the glossy cover, the glossy, colorful graphics throughout this book.  It answers every question that non members would want to know.  There is at least one area in each chapter that allows you to go online to read up on a regular Mormon, or as I have always referred to myself as a member of The LDS Church and which most people understand which Church that is.
Here are just some of the questions that are answered in this book.  Are Mormons Christians?  What happens inside LDS Temples?  Do Mormons still practice plural marriage? Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith? Are Mormons told how to vote? Why do Mormons have such big families? What does it take to be a Mormon? Do Mormons believe the Book of Mormon replaces the Bible? Why don't Mormons drink coffee or alcohol? Why do Mormons baptize for the dead?  What is the message of Mormonism?  In all, there are 26 chapters.  One major thing I like about this book, is how easy it is to read, as the author explains things clearly and with humor.  I very highly recommend this book tlo everyone, Mormon or not.  I would recommend this book in all LDS  homes.

I give this book 5 stars.
