They Lie In Wait to Deceive, Volume 1
“That we henceforth be no more children tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine by the sleight of men and cunning craftiness whereby they lie in wait to deceive.” (Ephesians 4:14)
The late Dee Jay Nelson lectured at the invitation of numerous churches. On a tour through Arizona, Robert L. and Rosemary Brown attended and taped one of his lectures. Ninety-six statements from Nelson’s 120-minute lecture were found to be false or misleading.
Dee Jay Nelson, among other things, claimed to have earned two Ph.D. degrees, to be a world-renowned Egyptologist, to be an author of over 150 scientific papers and articles, to be a mathematician, and to be one who, because of his reputation, was asked by the late King Farouk to catalog his artifacts. He used these and other impressive credentials to intimidate his audiences to believing hs false statements concerning Joseph Smith and the Book of Abraham. However, Dee Jay Nelson was found to be a high-school dropout who purchased his degrees from a diploma mill shut down by the State of Washington, was unknown to real Egyptologists who were unaware of his “scientific” and “Egyptological contributions,” etc. All documentation is included for the reader in this 300+ page volume.

Purchase Your Own Copy
As you are reading through the online version of They Lie In Wait to Deceive, you may
notice that some of the smaller text is fuzzy or not clearly readable. This is a technological limit. If we had
attempted to provide the highest quality download possible, the online files would have been 30 times larger than
what they are and therefore unmanageable for the average Internet user. Our driving desire was to make this
information available to the widest audience possible.
If you are interested in a copy of this book in a higher quality, we suggest purchasing a copy
