Are Mormons "Christians?" What is the truth about Mormons and drinking coffee, coke and alcohol? Why don`t Mormons watch "R" rated movies? Are there still Mormons who practice plural marriage? Why are Mormons married in a "Temple" and why are only a few people allowed to attend? What's the difference between a "Mormon" and a "Latter-day Saint?"
I am the author of the book: "Complete Idiot's Guide to Mormonism" (Penguin), which has now been read by more than 10,000 people. I have spoken on topics pertaining to the history of Christianity and Mormonism around the world, and have taught Mormon doctrine for more than 20 years, and am a former Methodist (practicing Baptist), convert to the Mormon Church. Without sounding "preachy," I can help clarify points of concern regarding Mormons as Christians, and can help others understand principles of belief behind the Mormon Church--as well as speak somewhat concerning the context of the New Testament (and the Book of Isaiah).
