Blog Tour - Day of Defense



Summary from Goodreads: There comes a point for each of us who are Latter-day Saints when we are face-to-face with those who have contrary views to ours. Oftentimes, we find ourselves feeling attacked and wish we knew just the right thing to say and how to say it.

Day of Defense: Positive Talking Points for the Latter Days transforms misconceptions and stigmas associated with the LDS Church into opportunities to effectively share the truth.

Discussion is divided into specific topics that place seemingly peculiar LDS beliefs into patterns seen in the Bible and early Christian history. Misunderstandings discussed include:

The Great Apostasy
Plural Marriage
Heaven and Hell
Man’s Potential and the Nature of God
The Book of Mormon
The Restoration

The Bible comparisons of these tough topics will give you the confidence to stand strong in the day of your defense.

I really enjoyed reading this book. There are a variety of topics that are well covered. I've been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints my whole life, and I came away with a greater understanding of my religion by reading this book. I loved the way that the author used the scriptures to explain why the LDS Church does things the way that it does. I liked the way he discussed early Christian history. This is a really neat book that will help members of the LDS faith know how to answer questions about our religion and those not of our faith to understand it just a little bit better. 

I was sent an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
