I guess you have never read that article, by two Evangelical scholars, about the poor and almost inexcusable way many Evangelicals are responding to the Mormon’s beliefs. They state very plainly that Evangelicals are losing the battle and they don’t even know it.

You mean the "scholars" whose work, especially that of Owen, have been found tainted and have been disavowed by actual Christian scholars, while being trumpeted by mormons?

"His (Owen) attacks upon the apologetic community dating back a number of years now are understandable and can no longer be seen as coming from one "inside" the same camp: he is clearly far outside, and happy to be there. Hopefully, no one will any longer be confused by his conservative "credentials." His views are now open and clear, and for that I'm thankful. Their unbiblical nature, thankfully, is just as clear."

Too bad that the article written in 1997, more than ten years ago, is all that mormons have to hang their anti-Evangelical hats on!

But they will keep hanging themselves anyways...

That would be the one. I have been in Academic circles for almost 15 years now and no one I have asked has either never heard of the guy or they do not consider him a “scholar”.

His book with Stephen J. Robinson “How wide the divide” was not impressive to say the least and also lost him quite a bit of credibility.

BTW, he no longer considers himself “Evangelical” having converted to Anglicanism in 2006.
