  • Media Interviews continue for RC President's New Co-Authored Book "Leaving Mormonism"

    Does the LDS church represent biblical Christianity? The question has enchanted more than a few radio hosts and their audiences. So they have been coming to the source -- our president Corey Miller who was a sixth generation Mormon when he decided to embrace biblical Christianity and Jesus as Savior! Dr. Miller's new co-authored book, Leaving Mormonism: Why Four Scholars Changed their Minds was publicly released on November 28, 2017. The latest interviews have been:

    Popular nationally syndicated talk show host Janet Mefferd spoke with Dr. Miller on her program, "Janet Mefferd Today," which can now be heard in her podcasts by selecting 12/5/17. Miller's family history as a sixth generation Mormon was explored, as well as the angle that Mormons are under extreme pressure to perform good works in order to achieve their salvation. This can lead to the over-use of depression and anxiety drugs among members of the LDS church.

    Shortly before the book's release date, he was interviewed by Pastor Mike Spaulding at Soaring Eagle Radio in this podcast which can be heard anytime. Dr. Spaulding, also senior pastor at Calvary Chapel in Lima, Ohio, has a background in apologetics. Spaulding and Miller explored how the book's four authors came together and wrote chapters in the book about their different experiences in how they discovered Christ. 

    (Janet Mefferd and Pastor Spaulding have both previously interviewed Dr. Miller and other representatives of Ratio Christi before about our ministry, and we are grateful for their interest.) 

    Dr. Miller also participated in a debate-style interview with his co-editor/co-author Lynn Wilder, also an ex-Mormon, on "Unbelievable," a popular streaming Premier Christian Radio program out of the United Kingdom, with host Justin Brierley and a current Mormon. This 11/25/17 podcast is available here. Brierley is author of the book Unbelievable
