Witness of a “Mormon Dad” begins as a summary of the author’s life that includes becoming an evangelical Christian while in college, moving across the country and struggling with his own identity crisis. At the age of thirty-three he marries a Mormon, an event which precedes many daunting challenges the couple would face on a daily basis. The balance of his personal account discusses in an upbeat but frank manner how a born again father and LDS mother make their family relationships work, particularly when the two children are raised from the mother’s point of view.
With the author’s particular story setting the stage, the balance of the book divulges his extensive research regarding the broad spectrum of LDS issues. In so doing he examines the pitfalls, inconsistencies and fallacies of Mormon thinking, history and doctrine, while comparing them to the standard of traditional Christianity. By book’s end, the reader will realize that very few “LDS stones” have been left unturned by this comprehensive portrait on Joseph Smith’s movement. This book is a must read for those who desire the truth regarding the Mormon enigma.
