About-

For years, Mormonism has taught that all the creeds of Christianity were an abomination and all other churches were corrupt (Pearl of Great Price, Joseph Smith 1:19). Joseph Smith was told not to join with any of them, but to help lead in what would be a restoration of the true church. In the same way, Christianity has never accepted Mormons among their ranks, considering them teachers of a different gospel (Galatians 1:6).

But a new ecumenical spirit of openness might suggest that the doctrinal distance between these two groups is shrinking. Are the two sides actually moving closer together? Is there significant change within the ranks of Mormonism? If so, is the change widespread? Does this new direction reflect the views of the leadership, or is it simply the belief of a few? Worse yet, is it a deceptive media ploy on behalf of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS) to appear to be something it is not? This work is a fresh new look at the distinctives between Christianity and Mormonism in an attempt to answer the question: "Is Mormonism Now Christian?"

Endorsements & Reviews-

"The question asked by this book is a good one, 'Has Mormonism changed?' In times past the LDS teachings have been radically different than historic Christianity. Dr. Crane examines what the LDS church has taught and is presently teaching. In this readable and yet scholarly work, you will have the latest information on what the present Mormon positions are, about God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, revelation, the pre-existence of man, and many other key doctrines. He examines their use of classic Christian words, examining their definitions and historic meanings. Do they mean the same thing to LDS people as they do to evangelical Christianity, or are they using Madison Avenue methods to promote the same strange doctrines? Have they changed their teachings? You will be surprised by the answers Dr. Crane's research has found."
