Fatal Flaws of the Most Correct Book on Earth
Born in Oakland, California in 1927 the author received his High School education in California before joining the Marines at 17 before the end of WW 2. While pursuing vocal studies in Los Angeles he accepted an LDS Mission starting in Buffalo, NY. Finding many inconsistencies among missionaries he concluded to get his own witness. With 3 days of fasting and prayer he read the BOM relying on Moroni's promise of asking God to reveal the truth of the BOM. Positive confirmation never came. The Mission President advised him to complete his mission saying he needn't teach anything he didn't believe. A missionary chorus was formed and the choice made to tour his final months as soloist with the Utah Centennial Chorus. After his mission he appeared in a Broadway Musical. He left for Milan, Italy in 1952 meeting his future wife on the ship. After his operatic debut in Spain, successful engagements followed that soon led to Berlin and a three year contract at the Vienna State Opera. While singing in Rome a screen test led to Director William Wyler choosing Claude for the role of Jesus in the Academy Award film 'Ben Hur'. After the 'Ben Hur' experience Claude made another BOM attempt with a 3 day fast/prayer at the Holy Trinity chapel of St. Catherine Monastery at Mount Sinai, Egypt. As Dramatic Tenor he sang opposite such sopranos as Birgit Nilsson, Renata Tabaldi, Joan Southerland; as Tristan, Otello, Siegfried, Parsifal etc; at Bayreuth, La Scala and most major European opera houses. After retiring, he attended his local Ward with family, becoming counselor in the Sunday school until he felt enough was enough. Conducting a Testimony meeting he bore his lack of testimony publicly asking forexcommunication as the only way to remove oneself from church rolls.

The book's analysis is not as deep as I expected. For example, the book says the 1 Ne 13 says bible is from "the mouth of a Jew' is not logical because the Bible were written by many authors. The book also says the plate of brass has more contain than the bible is not possible because it will make too much gold plates. A thought came to my mind when I read Book of Mormon 1st Nephi chapter 13. The original Bible (before it was taken out many important portions by the evil church according to Book of Mormon I Nephi chapter 13) is similar to book of Mormon because the preface of Book of Mormon says, Mormon made abridgment from numerous records that he had. Book of Mormon actually were written by many authors or prophets. Therefore, one can say that the Book of Mormon is proceeded out of the month of a Nephite. Because the original Bible is an abridgment, its contents are not so many as the plate of brass that Nephi got it from Laban. The Book of Mormon I Nephi Chapter 13 verse 23 says " And he said: Behold it proceedeth out of the mouth of a Jew. And I, Nephi, beheld it; and he said unto me: The book that thou beholdest is a record of the Jews, which contains the covenants of the Lord, which he hath made unto the house of Israel; and it also containeth many of the prophecies of the holy prophets; and it is a record like unto the engravings which are upon the plates of brass, save there are not so many; nevertheless, they contain the covenants of the Lord, which he hath made unto the house of Israel; wherefore, they are of great worth unto the Gentiles. "
