What do you know about Mormon metaphysics? Maybe you know a lot about it. But if you are like most people, then it is probably safe to say that you know nothing about it. No problem. The best way to fill this lacuna in your education is to study the Book of Mormon. The second best way is to read Stephen H. Webb's book Mormon Christianity: What other Christians Can Learn from the Latter-day Saints. As a convert to Catholicism from evangelical protestantism, and as a prolific author and professor of religion and philosophy, Webb shares a uniquely penetrating perspective on Christianity from which Christians of all varieties may benefit. Tragically, Webb shot himself last year after battling with depression, or, as I suspect, though I cannot confirm, after battling with "antidepressants."
