I was very interested to find out more about the belief system behind the Mormon religion. This book dragged it out to a point that I couldn't make it to the end of the book. The drab narration didn't help!
So much detail one listen is not enough!
Everything from start to finish!
The detailed account of modern day mormonism.
This would have been 5-stars across the board except for Mr Smalley's mispronunciation of names and places, for example he pronounces Heber as "hehber" when it's actual pronunciation is "heeber". Many such examples throughout the reading. Any good news reader should do research into his subject ... I can't imagine BBC getting something like this wrong!
I was born into a jack-Mormon family but was encouraged to do Sunday School, Boy Scouts, Aaronic priesthood along with my friends. I fell out with the church in my early teens when my bishop couldn't explain why different religions could all claim that God was on their side but not the other. I then wandered between religions for many years, eventually to become an Atheist. Listening to this book has opened my eyes in so many ways and made me really quite angry about all the lies I was told as a youngster making me SOOO glad I have put religion behind me. I think all formal religions, regardless of the label attached (e.g. Mormon, Catholic, Baptist, Muslim, whatever), are divisive and dangerous. Humanism is the only way forward.
How can so many million educated people be taken completely in by this obviously bogus cult. "God" help America and the rest of us.
