Blog Tour: Day of Defense: Positive Talking Points for the Latter Days

Scott Thormaehlen is pleased to be hosting a second virtual blog tour for his book, Day of Defense: Positive Talking Points for the Latter Days from January 8th through February 5th.

 There comes a point for each of us who are Latter-day Saints when we are face-to-face with those who have contrary views to ours. Oftentimes, we find ourselves feeling attacked and wish we knew just the right thing to say and how to say it.

If you are interested in joining the blog tour, please leave a comment with the date you’d like to post or contact Scott via email.

Here is a brief description of the book:

Day of Defense transforms misconceptions and stigmas associated with the LDS Church into opportunities to effectively share the truth. Discussion is divided into specific topics that place seemingly peculiar LDS beliefs into patterns seen in the Bible and early Christian history. Misunderstandings discussed include:

-The Great Apostasy
-Plural Marriage
-Heaven and Hell
-Man’s Potential and the Nature of God
-The Book of Mormon
-The Restoration

The Bible comparisons of these tough topics will give you the confidence to stand strong in the day of your defense.

Meet the Author:

Scott Thormaehlen served honorably for four years in the United States Air Force as a weather forecaster during the Operation Enduring Freedom and the War on Terrorism. He graduated from the University of Texas at San Antonio with a Bachelors of Arts in History. These academic and professional experiences cultivated an already analytical and curious mind. Stationed in the Bible Belt, at Shaw AFB, SC and born in South Texas, Scott has lived in areas where Bible-only belief is the prevailing religious perspective. Having lived in the “Mission Field” for over 29 years, Scott gained a cultural perspective of his religious counterparts in school, among friends, neighbors, and co-workers. Sharing a belief in the Bible and being raised in the knowledge of the Restoration, Scott came to realize the peculiarity of his station in life and the conflict between Mormonism and mainstream Christians. His interest in history, particularly Early Christian history and the differences between Mormons and mainstream Christians motivated this book; particularly that many viewed his faith as a cult and did not fully understand and ofter misrepresented the doctrines of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The book begun in 2003 as a few pages of notes that sought to simply answer Mormon topics with the Bible. Over the years Scott added more notes, and more notes, until he decided to put his work and thoughts into book format.
