Shaken Faith Syndrome
by Michael R. Ash
Shaken Faith Syndrome, 2nd Edition. In today’s Internet-savvy world an increasing number of Latter-day Saints are encountering anti-Mormon material. Since most members don’t have all the answers at their fingertips, LDS-critical claims can be unsettling or create doubt. Some arguments have caused a few members–even active members with strong testimonies–to lose their faith.
Backed by extensive research and decades of experience dealing with anti-Mormon allegations, Michael Ash explores how we can be both rational thinkers and devout believers.
This second edition of Ash’s widely successful Shaken Faith Syndrome includes more than 50 additional pages of material such as up-to-date highlights from scholarly studies that support the Book of Mormon and Book of Abraham, more discussion on how our brains and emotions handle challenging issues, and a brand new chapter on race issues and the Church.
For struggling members, or family and friends of struggling members, this is the “go-to” book for understanding the emotional turmoil that accompanies testimony-damage, and provides answers and resources to assuage the doubts which may impede faith.

Defending the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints: A Reference Guide
by Wayne D. Arnett
Defending the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is a must-have resource for anyone interested in apologetics. It is directed to those who are truly interested in the basic history and tenets of the Church. In particular, it is for those whose previous exposure to the LDS faith has been by way of so-called “anti-Mormon” criticisms. Those who have a sincere desire to investigate the restored gospel of Jesus Christ by prayerful study, but have insufficient background to readily rebut “anti-Mormon” claims, will benefit by reading this book. It is also a handy guide for members seeking help in addressing questions, concerns and criticisms posed by acquaintances, friends and loved ones.
Defending is a powerful reference guide designed to stimulate gospel study and investigation. It strengthens Latter-day Saints who wonder or are distressed about criticisms and promotes faithful LDS scholars and their works. Defending proclaims the Gospel of Jesus Christ and fills a definite void in current LDS literature.
