Book Synopsis
The ancient creeds of Christianity define what it means to be Christian. However, there is one Christian group-Mormons-who claim that all those creeds are wrong and need to be revamped. Indeed, this is why many argue that Mormons are not Christians at all, despite their belief in Christ. Mormonism provides a remarkably different view of Christ and his work from that of normative Christianity, taking all the old stories and reinterpreting them based on the revelations received by Joseph Smith, the Mormon prophet. This book is about that reinterpretation. I offer it, not as the Mormon viewpoint, but as a Mormon viewpoint-mine. It is written for both believers and non-believers in the hope that all will gain a better understanding of their Mormon friends and neighbors.

Great historical background and tracing of the evolution of Christian Doctrine. Comparisons of Mormon beliefs and traditional Christian beliefs were well laid out. Williamson's definition of the atonement bridges the beliefs of the ancient world of Israel with the Christian world of the New Testament as well as finding common ground for the various sects of today's Christian world.
