Mormon Christianity: What Other Christians Can Learn From the Latter-day Saints

Stephen Webb


This book explains why Mormonism should be considered a branch on the Christian tree. It focuses on the metaphysical foundations of Mormon theology. Mormon metaphysics is a form of Christian materialism. Mormons believe that spirit is refined matter and thus even God has a material form. Understanding that belief opens up new interpretations of Mormonism’s relationship to traditional Christianity.

Keywords: Mormonism, Metaphysics, Materialism, Anthropomorphism, Hermeticism, Classical theism, Embodiment
