Recognizing Techniques of Deception in Anti-Mormon Literature

The use of deceptive writing techniques, or “yellow journalism,” has become typical of some critics of the LDS Church. Using such literary styles is a blatant statement to the informed reader that the anti-Mormon authors are not attempting to report facts, but are consciously and cleverly trying to lead readers and investigators away from making  objective assessments and decisions based on the plain, uncolored truths. Recognizing Techniques of Deception in Anti-Mormon Literature lists twenty-four of those yellow-journalism techniques and defines them so that they can be easily identified and detected. It also shows examples of how they have been used to confuse and deceive unwary Latter-day Saints and investigators. Every person who has ever been confronted with anti-Mormon literature should listen to this CD—it will give him keys to discernment that can protect him from those who masquerade as truth tellers while trying to lead him astray. (1 CD, 80 minutes)
