Can you recommend some resources for explaining Church teachings to my Mormon relatives?

Question:

Last year I left the Mormon church and became a Catholic. I want to bolster my faith with more knowledge, especially on the subject of the nature of God so I can do a better job of explaining this to my Mormon family members. They constantly challenge my Catholic beliefs, especially that there is only one God. What do you recommend?

Answer:

Start with Frank Sheed’s Theology and Sanity, which contains a lucid and compact explanations of this subject. Then loan your relatives the book and offer to discuss it with them after they’ve read it. During the discussion cite these passages as biblical evidence there is only one true God: Isaiah 44:6; 45:5-6, 18, 21-22; 46:9. Cite these passages to show God is omnipresent: Psalm 138 (139):7-8; Wisdom 1:7; Jeremiah 23:24; Ephesians 1:23.
