Links

Though I have a list of all of these sites on right, there, I decided I would post little content “reviews” along with them. All of them are really good, but not all are good for beginners. I have put * next to all of the sites that are more gravitated toward people learning about the church.

- http://www.lds.org
This is the official website for members of the Church. It includes all sorts of information including the scriptures, talks, issues of church magazines and other resources. It is fairly easy to navigate, as well.

-http://www.mormon.org *
The official website for people investigating the church. It provides basic information on a vast array of subjects pertaining to belief, worship and social life of members of the Church. It can be a little hard to get around, but it’s worth a visit.

-http://www.lightplanet.com/response/answers/contents.htm *
This is a question and answer site created by the author of Defense of the Faith. The answers are easy to understand, and the questions are fairly common.

-http://www.mormonhaven.com/ *
This whole website is wonderful. It provides LDS news and well as links to hundreds of LDS websites (stores, mission prep. etc.). I highly recommend
“Answers to Critics' Questions About the LDS Church” and “Answers to Submitted Questions About the LDS Church” for people looking to learn about the church. There are tons of questions and answers on nearly every topic, however they aren’t organized.

-http://www.olsonhome.com/srm/temples.html *
This is an entire page dedicated to temples. It’s very basic, and mostly words. I recommend it if you’ve got time.

-http://www.jefflindsay.com/LDS_Intro.shtml *
One of the best resources around. Loads of essays, and FAQ at your disposal. So much stuff you won’t be able to read it all…seriously. Where does this guy get the time to write all of this?

-http://lds.about.com/
A great site for members, with information and print outs. It also would give lots of info for non-members.

-http://ldsfaq.byu.edu/ *
Haven’t looked at it much, but it looks awesome and has lots of information. Navigation is very similar to Mormon.org…in a way.

-http://www.blankslate.net/religion.php *
Lots of links and documents about the church. There isn’t very much to it, but it’s worth a visit!

-http://www.lds4u.com/ *
Provides rather basic introductions to doctrine as the missionaries teach them (still isn’t a substitute to the real deal) as well as information on missionaries themselves.

-http://www.the-book-of-mormon.com/
Physical evidence relating to the Book of Mormon. Very nicely put together and I recommend it to anyone who has read the Book of Mormon either most of the way, or all of the way through. (You will understand the site better that way.)

-http://www.mormonchic.com/gospel/
Mostly for people who already know a lot about the church, but there is some other stuff that investigators may find interesting too, such as the
LDS Lingo *.
