Stephen Webb is Professor of Religion and Philosophy, Wabash College.
Much of this book reads like an extended love letter, not one from the lover to his beloved, but from the lover to his family explaining what he loves about her and responding to the family s objections...Webb is a readable writer, quite capable of explaining technical philosophical ideas in nonphilosophical terms...I strongly recommend Webb's book, not just to the non-Mormons at whom it is aimed but also to Mormons. Latter-day Saints will learn a great deal about Catholicism by reading it...Webb's book offers non-Mormons a love letter explaining why he loves Mormons and giving them reasons why they might also. * Mormon Studies Review *
