I recently wrote the following guide on Amazon.com. It should be useful for those who would like to learn more about The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and about LDS beliefs.
Latter-day Christianity: 10 Basic Issues
Latter-day Christianity: 10 Basic Issues is an excellent book that demonstrates several important parallels between Mormonism and first-century Christianity, as well as explaining some basic doctrines and responding to common criticisms of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. 'Latter-Day Christianity: 10 Basic Issues'
The Holy Bible (King James Version)
Latter-day Saints (often called "Mormons" because of their belief in The Book of Mormon) believe that the Holy Bible is the word of God, and the Authorized King James Version is one of the "standard works" (canonical books of scripture) of the Church. Although Latter-day Saints do not regard the Apocrypha as canon, they believe that some Apocryphal books contain useful information. 'The Bible: Authorized King James Version with Apocrypha'
The Book of Mormon: Another Testament of Jesus Christ
The Book of Mormon: Another Testament of Jesus Christ is another of the canonical books of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It is a record of ancient inhabitants of the Americas, including the writings of their prophets and an account of Christ's ministry there after his resurrection. The Prophet Joseph Smith taught that it is "the keystone of our religion, and a man would get nearer to God by abiding by its precepts, than by any other book." This volume of sacred scripture is dedicated to Native American "Indians" (the descendants of the book's people) and to both Jews and Gentiles (that is, non-Jews), "to the convincing of the Jew and Gentile that JESUS is the CHRIST, the ETERNAL GOD, manifesting himself unto all nations." You can get a free paperback edition of The Book of Mormon from www.mormon.org, or you can buy the hardcover Doubleday edition from Amazon. 'The Book of Mormon : Another Testament of Jesus Christ'
Our Search for Happiness
Written by a latter-day apostle of the Lord Jesus Christ, M. Russell Ballard's book Our Search for Happiness is the first book I read when I began studying the Church. 'Our Search for Happiness'
The Life and Teachings of the Prophet Joseph
Learn about the life of the man who was the first prophet of modern times, Joseph Smith, Jr., in this popular audio lecture series by Dr. Truman G. Madsen. 'The Life and Teachings of the Prophet Joseph'
Standing for Something: 10 Neglected Virtues
Standing for Something: 10 Neglected Virtues That Will Heal Our Hearts and Homes is an inspirational volume written by the current living prophet of God, Gordon B. Hinckley. 'Standing for Something : 10 Neglected Virtues That Will Heal Our Hearts and Homes'
In addition to these great items, you can also get a free paperback copy of the Holy Bible (King James Version) or The Book of Mormon from www.mormon.org
