Excellent book, some good ideas and rebuttals, here, definitely will be using it to refer to again & again as I did a lot of highlighting & underlining. Would buy again!!

I've read a lot of material about the difference between Biblical Christianity and the doctrines of the LDS church, but none of it has provided the practical advice and insight this book offers in how to have an effective, thought-provoking conversation about spiritual issues with a Mormon. Lingle not only provides a solid basis upon which to evaluate LDS claims, but he also coaches the reader in countering common Mormon arguments against Biblical Christianity. His approach is ingenious; he not only outlines the LDS missionary's strategy to gain the upper hand in a conversation, but he provide the reader with a wealth of terrific, thought-provoking questions to ask. These are designed to encourage a Mormon to think deeply about the doctrines he or she espouses. Anyone who wants tips on how to effectively speak with a Mormon about Biblical Christianity will find this book invaluable.

It has some older information that can't really be used today, at least in America, but overall, it is a pretty insightful book!

One can see that a possible Mormon has criticized Wilbur's book in a review. This is a normal counter attack without true knowledge of Jesus Christ of the Bible. What Mormon's believe is included in Wilbur's book. That is, that God the Father was a man named Adam (the same Adam with Eve in the garden) that had sexual intercourse with Mary thousands of years later, and Jesus was born. Then they audaciously say, Mary was still a virgin, even though it was God that literally and physically laid with her. Wilbur will also point out that the Mormon teaching is that some Mormon's will become equal to God Almighty. They will have their own world with many wives to procreate children and be their God. The Mormon belief is truly nothing more than science fiction and many Mormons do not even know that the above it taught in the LDS church.

It's OK

This book consists in a brief history and outline of Mormon doctrines, followed by a very structured way to organize a coversation, a list of questions to ask Mormons and their possible answers. There is some good stuff in the book, and the author is obviously a very clever man, his questions original and thought-provoking.
However, it should be noted that these questions are based more on logic than on the Word of God.
The author's intent seems to trap the Mormon in his words using the wisdom of the world, instead of reasoning from God's Word. There is also a chapter about using the Book of Mormon to witness...what?! How can we use a book inspired by Satan to witness for Jesus? This is pure silliness. I suppose Lingle simply wanted his book to be original and different from other books on the market.

Wilbur Lingle arrived in Japan from the United States in 1954. Twenty years later he started bashing Latter-day Saint missionaries with proof texts from the Bible. He returned to the United States in 1989 to begin "Love to Share Ministries," an "outreach" in which, among other things, he teaches others how to witness to Latter-day Saints "without arguing."

When he started attacking the faith of Latter-day Saints in Japan in 1975, he admits that he "used many scripture passages in order to prove them wrong" (p. 155). He argued, but he eventually "found that this was not very effective" (p. 155). So he began showing LDS missionaries that "the verses they were quoting . . . did not prove their point" (p. 155, emphasis in original). For Lingle, this is witnessing "without arguing," though those Saints he corners with his arguments, which include an array of biblical proof texts, may see it quite differently.

Lingle claims that "when a Mormon is defeated," presumably by him in a nonargument, "he will cunningly start attacking your character and motives" (p. 85). He then proceeds to attack the character and motives of Latter-day Saints: "Mormons are well-trained in character assassination" (p. 85). And he also claims that "the Mormons will not always tell you the truth, nor will they tell you what they actually believe. They only tell you what they want you to hear" (p. 128), which presumably is not what they really believe. Lingle asserts that, "through repeated contact with numerous Mormons, I have found that telling the truth is not one of their virtues. Lying is quite commonly practiced. Not only do missionaries lie, but also the officials who run the Mormon church" (p. 85). "Sometimes they lie out of ignorance--or it might be Mormon 'double talk.' However," he insists, he has "had them deliberately lie" (p. 128) about their beliefs.

Lingle senses that "it is best not to let them pray, because they sound very pious when they pray. This tends to deceive people into thinking they are sincere. However, their prayers are memorized and most Mormons will pray the same prayers" (p. 107). "Furthermore, they do not pray to the God of the Bible" (p. 107).

Under the heading "Intimidation," he concedes that "Mormons may be sweet and kind when you first meet them, and will continue so if you listen meekly and agree with everything they say. However, if you ask them thought-provoking questions they become frustrated and resort to special tactics to get you off course" (p. 129) in the noncontentious nonargument you are having with them. They will first "tell you to hold out your hand, to see if you are trembling. Even if your hand is as steady as possible, they will still accuse you of being nervous. They say that this is caused by the devil that is in you" (pp. 129--30). Then they will frequently "say, 'I command you . . . ," or they "may call down the curse of God upon you. They are apt to be very dramatic! It is only a trick."

Finally, "if you don't believe what they say, they may accuse you of being insincere, contentious, etc." (p. 130). Lingle contentious? Never--he no longer even argues. But he also admits that he is a bit contentious, since that is what he thinks the Bible tells him to be (pp. 125--26).

How well does Lingle understand the faith of the Saints? Not at all well.

The following illustrates the level of his misunderstanding: "Mormonism teaches salvation by human good works" (p. 203). The death of Jesus merely yields a resurrection, so "becoming a god," in his version of LDS beliefs, "is a matter of one's own works" (p. 133). He insists that the Saints believe that "Jesus was no different from any of the other spirits in the previous world [premortal existence], but just happened to be the first one born" (p. 196). And, of course, "the Mormons have very little respect for the Bible. They do everything in their power to tear it down and attempt to prove it false" (p. 138). "The LDS Church might talk a lot about Christ, but in reality he plays no part in their personal salvation" (p. 45). "When the Mormons use the word 'redemption,' they mean that all men will be resurrected" (pp. 67--68). And, though they say much about faith, "in most cases they have no idea what this 'faith' is.

Their religion is one of 'works'" (p. 105). However, Lingle thinks that "faith and works are both very important," but he teaches "that works ought to follow faith" (p. 104). Such a thought, of course, never occurred to a Latter-day Saint. "If their literature is taken at face value, they seem to come close to true Christianity. This is part of their plan for deceiving the public" (p. 81).

Lingle describes himself on the cover of his book as a "world-renowned expert on Mormons." He boasts that, after one has lured LDS missionaries into a Bible-bashing brawl (p. 201), one can witness effectively to them "with the information in this book and a lot of love" (p. 202). He fails on all counts.
