Have you ever been at a loss for words when Mormon missionaries knock on your door? Do you wish you had a better understanding of what they believe and how it compares to Christianity? If so, then I would recommend Eric Johnson and Sean McDowell’s new book that just released today! Sharing The Good News With Mormons: Practical Strategies For Getting The Conversation Started will give you the tools you need to have fruitful conversations with Mormons. Check out for more information.

Eric Johnson, an expert in Mormonism and co-author of Answering Mormons’ Questions: Ready Responses for Inquiring Latter-day Saints and  Mormonism 101: Examining the Religion of the Latter-day Saints, joined me to discuss the important LDS teachings that every Christian should understand.

I hope you enjoy part 1 of this interview as we discuss the teachings of the LDS church. Don’t miss part 2 next week as we dive into Eric and Sean’s new book and look at practical strategies.
