Day of Defense

Book Details:
Release Date: May 2013
Publisher: Cedar Fort, Inc.
Genre: Doctrinal

This book is powerful!
Using Biblical references Scott Thormaehlen defends Latter-Day Saint beliefs and has a goal to build bridges by seeking common ground between the different religions, and to clear up some of the misunderstandings known today.

He broaches such topics as:
Man's Potential
The Afterlife
The Book of Mormon
The Restoration

We need to "unite rather than divide honest seekers of truth" that we may "combat many social evils that threaten all religious institutions."

This book is really good and opens your eyes to more of the teachings in the Bible that will give you "confidence to stand strong in the day of your defense."

I LOVE the bold colors of the cover :)

About the Author:
Scott Thormaehlen served honorably for four years in the United States Air Force as a weather forecaster during the Operation Enduring Freedom and the War on Terrorism. He graduated from the University of Texas at San Antonio with a Bachelors of Arts in History. These academic and professional experiences cultivated an already analytical and curious mind. Stationed in the Bible Belt, at Shaw AFB, SC and born in South Texas, Scott has lived in areas where Bible-only belief is the prevailing religious perspective. 

Having lived in the “Mission Field” for over 29 years, Scott gained a cultural perspective of his religious counterparts in school, among friends, neighbors, and co-workers. Sharing a belief in the Bible and being raised in the knowledge of the Restoration, Scott came to realize the peculiarity of his station in life and the conflict between Mormonism and mainstream Christians. His interest in history, particularly Early Christian history and the differences between Mormons and mainstream Christians motivated this book; particularly that many viewed his faith as a cult and did not fully understand and ofter misrepresented the doctrines of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. 

The book begun in 2003 as a few pages of notes that sought to simply answer Mormon topics with the Bible. Over the years Scott added more notes, and more notes, until he decided to put his work and thoughts into book format.
