For a different viewpoint on Mormonism for your questions, try me. I am a staunch believer in the Book of Mormon and belong to another church (the Church of Christ)that is set up identically to the Biblical church. If there are things about traditional Mormonism that trouble you or you have questions about, just ask and you might find the answers from the Book of Mormon to be quite surprising. I have been studying the scriptures diligently for 16 years under the school of hard knocks... I may not have all of the answers but will sure go find them if I don`t. I`m strongest on Biblical and Book of Mormon doctrines, and am also somewhat familiar with Mormon history and archaeology.

Experience in the area

Almost 30 years experience of online support, discussion groups, moderator etc.

What do you like about this subject?

It is dearest to my heart :^)

What do you still hope to achieve/learn in this field?

To dispell many myths associated with the Book of Mormon.

Something interesting about this subject that others may not know:

There are over 100 churches that have found the Book of Mormon to be true and use it as scripture. Many reject the Book of Mormon because they suppose it teaches "another" gospel than the Bible yet closer examination reveals that the two books agree as one and compliment each other in ways that are higher than man could have concieved.

Something controversial or provocative about this subject

Many Book of Mormon precepts are strongly against mainstream LDS doctrines and traditions. Most people believe that the Book of Mormon is about the LDS church when in fact it is actually against that particular sect in many ways.
