The Truth of the Matter: Answering Questions with Scriptures (Paperback)
The continued growth of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has brought an increase of interest in its divine message. People want to know about our beliefs and customs. As such, Latter-day Saints need to be prepared to answer all sorts of questions as honest and faithful representatives of God's Church. Pulling from his thirty years of experience as a Church educator, Russell N. Greiner provides ways you can answer these questions using scriptural and doctrinal evidence. The Truth of the Matter is an essential resource for missionaries and members alike, illustrating possible answers to questions such as - Why isn't the Book of Mormon mentioned in the Bible? - Are "Mormons," or members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Christian? - Is the Church a cult, as some people say? - Why do we need Joseph Smith if we already have the bible? - What is the role of women in the Church? - What is the purpose of the Book of Mormon? From answering genuine questions about our faith to rebutting false rumors about the Church, this collection of topics will help Latter-day Saints use the scriptures to effectively share the truths of the gospel.
