Since the inception of Mormonism, Mormons have claimed that all Christians and churches are corrupt while Christians also have not allowed Mormons to hold a legitimate standing within their faith. However, in recent years these lines seemed to have blurred. Mormons are calling themselves Christians and are trying to present themselves as such in the public sector and some Christians are beginning to say Mormons are not too different. Has Mormonism changed?
Steven A. Crane approaches this issue in his clear and insightful book, Is Mormonism Now Christian? Are the two sides moving together? Or are there still significant differences that are pushed under the rug in the name of openness and ecumenism? Crane answers these questions as he discusses recent dialogues between evangelical and Mormon leaders and then reviews theological issues and belief comparisons.
Helpful appendices give further information including the teaching plan of Mormon missionaries, a Mormon dictionary of terms, correcting Mormon misuse of Scripture, and a brief discussion of key Mormon concepts.
