Wonder who the ghost writer was?Will this be shelved under Fiction
in the library?
I think I would be fine with Senator Hatch writing a book about what it's
like to be a Senator, or even what it's like to be a member of the LDS
faith and a politician, but is there really a need for another book describing
the basic beliefs of the LDS church? Isn't that called the Gospel
Principles manual? Can't those curious to learn about the Mormons contact
the missionaries or local members with their questions? $18 seems a little
steep for a book the article describes as "very elementary" in its
discussion about our faith. If the goal that famous Mormons have in writing
these sorts of books is to reach as many people as possible, why not make it a
blog and thus accessible to a much greater audience? I'm not saying
Senator Hatch doesn't have the right to make money by writing books, but I
think we should all be careful about the thin line between proselyting our
beliefs and monetizing them.
I think Orrin Hatch has been instrumental in building the America we now live in
and I think we are not in a good situation now. I do not admire him. He writes
his music and now a book and uses his political position to try to sell them.
So this is why Orrin didn't want to debate Scott Howell - he was writing a
book no one wants to read.
What shallow comments. When you read the book come back and share some comments
based on facts not conjecture. As to the need for another book explaining LDS
beliefs those will always be needed for different audiences. On certain
occasions I've needed special help to translate my beliefs into the culture
I was involved in and there was nothing available.
Sure to cause a stroke amongst our evangelical brothers and sisters with the
interchangeable use of Mormon and Christian - that age-old and worn out, and
silly debate. Perhaps it wasn't as much for Mitt Romney to win as much as
it was to put the church in full spotlight. Good luck, Senator, with your
Senator Orrin Hatch is one of the very few legislators that ever will make a
personal effort to answer any questions his constituency has of him. I have
found none other than him that will do this. All elected officials should try
to communicate, but very few do. With computerized means, it should be far more
possible, but it is not, evidently.
The Senator "fooled'm" again. He's got another six years to
feed off the taxpayers. He is no Republican or conservative. He associates
with the most radical Democrats, votes with them, and writes songs about them.
He wanted to appear at the Democrat convention. And surprise, he is against
Hatch can write a book.Hatch can run for office.Don't
have to read the book.Don't have to vote for him.Country
still has some freedom left. Not all bad.
I promise to read this book if it contains insight into Sen. Hatch promotion and
legislation efforts on behalf of multi-level marketing businesses, with
commentary on how those businesses fit into a Mormon, Christian worldview.
