    I have read all 5 volumes. His first 3 are just packed with well resourced historical information. When I then glanced at the contents of his last 2 volumes (4 &5) I thought they would be boring. Why should I want to read about the Missionary Discussions or The Doctrine and Covenants again? But I did, and was amazed. If I had to read again any of his books, it would be those last two. Jim brings some very interesting angles and background information on the lunacy of basic Church teachings I once thought were so true. I particularly found his scolding of Smith’s absurd god (with a small ‘g’) to be profound as well as hilarious. Seeing through Jim’s eyes, I discovered that the god of the D&C (Smith invented Revelations) was petty, vengeful, nasty, petulant, arrogant, small minded, deceptive, violent, inconsistent and wholly unreliable... and far from convincing. He describes in frustration about the god that never seems to stop blaming and threatening his own people as well as... More > constantly labeling the entire human race as ‘evil’.... “Why can’t the Mormon God, just for once, be NICE – ever? Although I have penned my own book on the subject (The Youngest Bishop in England), I would seriously prefer a doubting and serious searcher of truth to read Jim's volumes before mine as they contain more information and evidence of the hoax. The author’s grasp and knowledge of science, physics, geology, archaeology and biology, is evident throughout his writings. His journey has been a hard and cruel discovery of facts and like many honest and utterly devout souls who can no longer live a lie, has incurred alienation from his family with suffering and rejection. His books stand as a supreme achievement and offer a light and warning to the world of the real history and face of Mormonism. For me personally, they stand as a major resource and comprehensive evidence to the great Mormon deception; every important issue is there and written with painstaking meticulous care and correctness.< Less

    The MORMON Delusion, Volume 2, by Jim Whitefield is a continuum volume to five other books all scrutinizing the historical basis of a modern religion, namely: The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints otherwise known as The Mormon Church. Joseph Smith wore and used many hats. Whilst he had no knowledge of Egyptology and was no linguist, Smith claimed his god endowed him with such gifts in order to 'translate' ancient documents through the use of a seer stone with the aid of a hat. He claimed to be the man chosen by God to receive and restore what had been lost and did not exist on the earth since the crucifixion of Jesus Christ; namely the true gospel of Jesus Christ and its priesthood. He claimed to be the author of the Bible of the New World, i.e., The Book of Mormon. He claimed to have seen the resurrected Jesus, God and a few other Celestial beings. To these add prophet, seer, and revelator. In Volume 2 Jim Whitefield analyzes Smith's works in scientific detail. I do not... More > know how Whitefield managed to remain fair and neutral in his treatment through all the material he covered in the book, but he did. After a few pages it became evident that Smith was a shameless fraud of world-class proportions. At the end of the book my opinion had amplified. Smith was a superb charlatan. I found I almost revered the man for his audacity and chutzpa. After I had finished reading the book I was idly thumbing through various pages. I ran across an apology the author made in his Dedication to his children and grandchildren. He states, "I unwittingly perpetuated the delusion indoctrinating and brainwashing the next generation to believe that Mormonism is true." A paragraph later he adds, "I offer them my apologies for not discovering and revealing the truth before it was to late for them." Jim Whitefield knows how hard it is for someone born in the church to break free of the conditioning of the church. This took a rare kind of courage. The Jim Whitefield I had known up until then was a gentle man, with a warm spirit, and good will toward all. After reading this apology I was struck with the breadth of his inner strength. I felt honored to know him. He has let me know that I have further work to do to set things right with my son and my grandchildren. If you are a Mormon, Post Mormon, Borderline Mormon, Religious Scholar, Philosopher, Research Historian, etc., you will want to own The Mormon Delusion, Volumes 1 through 5. They are a library in themselves.< Less
