It is rather seldom that pamphlets of such short length accomplish so much good in so little space, as Roman Catholic evangelist Jimmy Akin does in the brochure in the series, "CTS Explanations". The author sets out a general description of pagan L.D.S. Mormonism of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, taking care briefly to distinguish it from the Christian variant, R.L.D.S. Mormonism (of the Community of Christ, formerly named the Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints).

Jimmy Akin (who also is the author of many other pamphlets about Roman Catholic doctrine and practice) writes, in a measured and moderate tone, welcomely lacking in stridency or rant, about what L.D.S. Mormonism believes, in broad but adequately comprehensive terms, and examines the claims of this heathen religion and of its putative scriptures. He resolutely, but gently, refutes the claims and upholds the truth of the Christian faith. His candour is refreshing and he avoids the mistake of taking too obsessively a specifically Romish Catholic stance against the false and eclectic L.D.S. Mormon faith, which, among other heinous defects, rejects Christianity's Trinitarian monotheism. Mormonism is not merely uncatholic, it is blatently unchristian and polytheistic.

To engage in apologetic debate and other endeavours requires more exploration in detail of L.D.S. Mormonism than this pamphlet provides, but Akin's short overview of L.D.S. Mormonism is a very good resource to read and to consult in the initial stages of coping with this bizarre counterfeit of Christianity that so completely twists it into something little recognisable as some kind of "Restored" Christianity, which is what it purports to be. L.D.S. Mormonism is unrecognisable as any identifiably legitimate stream of genuine Christianity!

A Ready Reply and Kindly Expressed Refutation of L.D.S. Mormon Claims Jan. 19 2009
By Celil Parker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
It is rather seldom that pamphlets of such short length accomplish so much good in so little space. This one, by Roman Catholic evangelist Jimmy Akin, is part of the series, "CTS Explanations", and at the time of writing these comments (early 2009) is more readily available from Amazon's foreign WWW sites (Amazon.ca, Amazon.co.uk, Amazon.fr) than from Amazon.com itself. The author sets out a general description of pagan L.D.S. Mormonism of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, taking care briefly to distinguish it from the Christian variant, R.L.D.S. Mormonism (of the Community of Christ, formerly named the Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints).
