You may remember David Fitzgerald, the enthusiastic atheist guide to western religion and author of Nailed: Ten Christian Myths that Show Jesus Never Existed. He is back to talk about the subject of his second book The Mormons. This is an investigation of the beginnings of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and Joseph Smith’s personal history. Not at all combative, just, as he says, “provocative”.
David, raised in a solidly Christian home, is charmingly devoted to truth in historical representation. As fascinating as the facts he presents, is David’s open-heartedness and affection for participants while rallying against what he sees as cultural mythology and scandal. He presents without pressuring, so listen for yourself and see if your beliefs are supported or challenged by his views.
