      We Mormons are so GULLIBLE! Great read about LDS urban legends, some of which I had totally bought into while on my mission. There's a great DVD connected with the book, and I even found holyfetch, which is the Mormon version of snopes. Bottom line: CHECK YOUR SOURCES BEFORE SPOUTING OFF IN CHURCH, FOLKS!

      I very thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. I especially enjoyed the way the author explored and explained the various tall-tales but than would relate some similar true and verifiable stories. The main point of the book seemed to be that there are enough true faith-promoting stories out there that we ultimately don’t need the fake ones. I also liked how the author didn’t limit himself to just Mormon myths but also addressed some of the more prominent and persistent myths that are found aro [...]

      I wasn't really interested in the parts of this book that told true faith-promoting stories, most of which I was very familiar with, so I skimmed through them. What I paid close attention to was the tracing of the origins of the false rumors. Undocumented stories are a major pet-peeve of mine; I always want sources. Faith is a knowledge of things that are not seen but are TRUE, so it especially bothers me when faith is being built on falsity clothed as truth. I don't want my testimony contaminat [...]

      Quick read that I found fun. Any person that is a member of the LDS church has heard a rumor or two and one must always ask the question, "Is that really true?" I even read a few that I had never heard before and many that I had. It was also fun to read of some myths that are factual. The amazing part is that it only takes a few moments to repeat some of these myths and they spread like wildfire. I was surprised to read that several of these myths had been discussed in general conference or via [...]

      This was an okay book. It could be a powerful book for understanding how quickly out of hand spreading rumors and unfounded stories can get. I did not always agree with how the author came to the conclusions that he did but appreciate his take on things. I was disappointed to find that a story given me some 20+ years ago about a portrait of Jesus that I received at the same time was false. It was inspiring and something that I have believed all of this time and even passed on way back when.

      Another quick easy read. The author presented many "myths" and used facts to back up whether they were true or false. I hadn't heard of all of them. He does a good job of pointing out how quickly rumors can get out of control. And that there are many true miracles in our Church history to place our faith.

      I thought I posted on this oneI read it way last year when it first came out. If you are looking just to be entertained, watch the DVD. If you want some really interesting information on Mormon Urban Legends, this is a really great book. I have it if my friends want to borrow it.

    • Tenille says:

      It was interesting! I hadn't heard most of the myths.
