The Mormons And Their Bible

M. T. Lamb

The Mormons And Their Bible is a comprehensive examination of the religious beliefs and practices of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, commonly known as the Mormons. Written by M.T. Lamb, a noted scholar of Mormon history and theology, the book explores the central role of the Bible in Mormon theology, as well as the unique ways in which Mormons interpret and use scripture.The book begins by tracing the origins of the Mormon faith, from its founding by Joseph Smith in the early 19th century to its growth and expansion throughout the United States and beyond. It then delves into the Mormon understanding of the Bible, examining how Mormons view the text as both a historical document and a source of divine revelation.Throughout the book, Lamb provides detailed analysis of key Mormon doctrines, such as the idea of a ""living prophet"" who receives ongoing revelation from God, and the concept of ""eternal progression"" - the belief that humans can become like God through faithful adherence to Mormon teachings.The Mormons And Their Bible also explores the ways in which Mormonism has evolved over time, adapting to changing cultural and social contexts while remaining true to its core beliefs. Lamb provides a nuanced and insightful look at this fascinating and complex religion, making this book an essential resource for anyone seeking to understand the beliefs and practices of the Mormon faith.This scarce antiquarian book is a facsimile reprint of the old original and may contain some imperfections such as library marks and notations.
