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!

Mr. Riskas joins us to give us some insight into Mormonism and the critiques in his book.
