Information about Mormonism
*Answers for Mormons (www.mscbc.org/mormonism)
Our own “clearing house” of information about Mormonism. It contains a number of our own original articles as well as links to many more resources.
Utah Lighthouse Ministry (www.utlm.org)
The research ministry of Jerald and Sandra Tanner, former Mormons and evangelical Christians who were pioneers in the effort to bring factual, reliable, and well-documented information concerning Mormonism. The extent of their resources is unequaled.
Mormonism Research Ministry (www.mrm.org)
Another ministry dedicated to sound and thorough research on Mormonism, covering a variety of subjects ranging from history to doctrine to methods of evangelism.
Ex-Mormon Christians United for Jesus (www.unveilingmormonism.com)
The online ministry of Michael and Lynn Wilder, with many good resources. Lynn is a former BYU professor and the author of the well-received autobiographical book Unveiling Grace, which paints an intimate portrait of her family’s escape from Mormonism.
The Mormon Essays (www.mormonessays.com)
The official Mormon responses on some of the more controversial aspects of Mormonism and its history (racism, polygamy, unusual doctrines, etc.) The website is NOT an official LDS website, but the essays are collected from the official www.lds.org website. While these essays reflect the Mormon “spin” on these subjects, they are nonetheless valuable to anyone who is studying modern Mormonism and the way it addresses these matters.
