Though sometimes on opposite poles, scholars and close friends Gerald McDermott and Robert Millet are determined to model love and respect despite serious theological differences. In a debate format, the authors focus on the person and role of Jesus while exploring such issues as authority for faith and practice, whether Mormons are Christians, what salvation means, and the church and its sacraments. This volume will give thoughtful readers of all persuasions a greater understanding of two significant approaches to the meaning of Jesus and faith.
