    Be aware that this is NOT a book for everyone. It contains many quotations and inaccuracies, misrepresented and incomplete sources, and an equivocal end. The Givenses poetic language sacrifices meaning all too often. The God Who Weeps: How Mormonism Makes Sense of Life by scholars Terryl & Fiona Givens is a hodge-podge of the Givenses’ personal beliefs, Mormon teachings (often inaccurately portrayed), and numerous writers’ words and ideas which are too often plagiarized, twisted, or misrepresented. Truth and error exist side-by-side, and true statements are mixed with false ones.

    As a scholar myself, this book bothers me. If it hadn't presented itself as a statement of Mormon theology I wouldn't have as much difficulty with it. I analyze and think deeply about everything I read, word by word, phrase by phrase, sentence by sentence. I am a sceptic in the sense of "a person who questions the validity, authenticity, or truth of something purporting to be factual, especially religion or religious tenets" (thefreedictionary dot com). And there's the rub. The Givenses' book "purports to be factual" regarding Mormonism but is filled with fallacy and flaws. It lulls the unobservant reader into believing every word. I would have readers go into this book with their eyes open, knowing that fallacy is there and so read critically, that is, with careful evaluation and judgment. The adage "think about what you read" particularly holds true for this book. Mormons who have read TGWW should be aware that they’ve absorbed untruths as well as truths. I suggest a second reading with more critical attention to each idea presented. Question it. Ask yourself, “Is this true?”

    Favorite Regency novel! Love, love this book. I can't fully articulate how excellent this book was to read. She is working on another, and I can't wait to read it.
