A review of
"Inside Mormonism
What Mormons Really Believe"
by Isaiah Bennett


Isaiah Bennett's book is surprisingly childish and spiteful. He has included every single negative thing about the Mormons he could find, without regard whatsoever whether it's true, and excluded everything positive about them.

And yet some people, unfamiliar with us, or forgetting what we are like, will take this book as the Gospel Truth.

After some thought, I decided the best way to help with this would be to write a catalog of the whoppers in the book. Here they are.

Barry Bickmore has also written a review of this same book, available on the Maxwell Institute website. My review is from a different POV, focusing on minute details whereas his takes an overall approach.

This review is a work in progress. I decided there is enough so far to be of value. I will gradually add to it as circumstances permit.

I've given Bennett's text an indexing system to assist the student in locating things:
