    One thought on “Catholic and Mormon: A Theological Conversation”

    1. Opened my eyes to the Beauty of Catholicism and Mormonism:I was fortunate enough to meet Dr. Webb recently at a conference and purchase his book before it even hit the shelves. Before reading this book, I had this weird feeling about the Catholics ingrained into my head by my grandmother. I thought it was some odd religion with weird doctrines and an even weirder past. I have attended Catholic mass before and was proven wrong. This opened up my mind to the idea of Catholicism. I would be willing [...]

    2. My professor co-authored this book, and I read it for extra credit. I'm glad I did! The approach of this book is wonderful. I left with a deeper understanding of both religions (I am a Mormon) and a greater connection to Catholicism. I love theological conversation, both in finding similarities between religions to build unity, and in learning from our differences. There's so much to learn about one another, and I think every Mormon, Catholic, or anyone interested, should consider reading this b [...]

    3. An excellent read for those who are interested in where the LDS Church is on the tree of Christianity. It's rather surprising to see the multiple parallels with Catholicism. While the results are different, both religious traditions share things such as high ritual, need for divine authority, a central leader who meets God and Man in the middle. Both are also open to Church doctrine found outside of the Bible. In many ways the two Churches reject many of the claims of the Reformation. I highly r [...]

    4. I found this to be a very informative book on the similarities between the doctrines of the LDS and Catholic faith. It appears that most "differences" which I've heard others make about our faiths are just differences in semantics. When differences are evident, each author clearly presents their position, and considers the others viewpoint with an open mind. I didn't find this to be a "fast read" book -- it requires thoughtful attention.

    5. Fascinating deep scholarly comparison of Catholic and Mormon theologies, emphasizing their similarities by two professors of religion, one born an evangelist that converted to Catholicism and one Greek Orthodox that converted to Mormonism. A deep, but enlightening read.

    6. I learned a lot about Catholics and how they view Mormons. Fantastic book if you (like me) enjoying rambling philosophy and comparative religion.
