Mr. Thomas Riskas
Mr. Riskas, author of Deconstructing Mormonism, was a member of the Mormon faith for more than 20 years while serving in various leadership roles including, even, as a High Priest, before formally leaving the Church in 2002. His new book, for which world-renowned philosopher and scholar Kai Nielsen wrote the foreword, finds Mormonism’s “theological truth-claims are ultimately false or incoherent, and therefore unjustifiable and unwarranted as truth-claims.” But don’t for a second mistake this as a book solely applicable to Mormonism. Almost from beginning to end its points are just as forceful against theism in general!
