9781893036147: Shaken Faith Syndrome: Strengthening One's Testimony in the Face of Criticism and Doubt

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 resolve the doubts which can impair faith.

From the Back Cover:

Some reviews of Shaken Faith Syndrome (first edition):

"This will no doubt turn out to be one of the most important books for LDS
members with questions.... In my view this is a watershed publication."
(Dr. Brian Hauglid, associate professor of ancient scripture, BYU; co-editor,
Traditions About the Early Life of Abraham.)

"Every person...worried about their faith-or the faith of a loved one-should
be told about this book. This book should stay in print permanently, with new
editions as needed." (Larry C. Morris, MA American Literature, BYU; former
assistant editor to the Ensign; co-editor, Oliver Cowdery: Scribe, Elder, Witness.)

"...every bishop in the Church should have a copy of this book to aid them in
dealing with challenges to the faith." (Bill Beardall, owner and operator, "The
Gospel Doctrine Class Blog.")

"...frankly brilliant book...ranks among the most important books I've ever
read...written in an intelligent and engaging tone...highly recommended and is,
in my opinion, a must-own for every gospel library." (Jonathan Decker, Meridian
Magazine
.)
