Author Meets Critics. Shaken Faith Syndrome: Strengthening One’s Testimony in the Face of Criticism and Doubt Using very selective presentations of the evidence, many groups target Mormons in the hope of creating doubt and disillusionment. And sometimes they succeed, as many Latter-day Saints are unaware that faith-shaking claims have been addressed time and again. A new book by Michael R. Ash, Shaken Faith Syndrome: Strengthening One’s Testimony in the Face of Criticism and Doubt, examines the underlying misconceptions that contribute to de-conversion, suggests ways Latter-day Saints can strengthen their intellectual foundations against challenging issues, and then provides an even-handed and accurate framing of several of the most popular LDS-critical arguments. How well does it succeed? Would this book be a valuable tool for you or a loved one? Please join the book’s author and a panel of careful readers in a vigorous exchange about this book and the important topic with which it wrestles.
