I have a Mormon friend who just offered me a video about families from her church. I am excited to take this opportunity to give her some literature on the Catholic Church. Does anyone have any suggestions on a book/audio tape I could give her to introduce her and her family to the Church? I don’t want anything too complicated or confusing to start her with. thanks!

Ya, try Pillar of Fire, Pillar of Truth by Catholic Answers.
Try “Catholic for a Reason - Scripture and the Mystery of the Family of God” available from Catholic Answers or St. Joseph Communications.
If they have any familiarity with the bible at all (most Mormons don’t), it will blow their minds.
How about an invitation to our Catholic Mass? It was made for our Parish here in Logan Utah. It answers some important questions that Mormons may not ask but do think about. Go ahead and read it at:
If you would like a few of these broshures just contact the Utah Mission at: firstname.lastname@example.org
If there are errors on this site , in the contents of the invitation I can say that there are none in the original broshure. It is really well done.
I like Pillar of Fire, Pillar of Truth as well. It’s a simple, small start.
thank all of you for your responses. They are all useful tools!
Pillar of Fire, Pillar of Truth is super! Also, anything by Patrick Madrid is good. He has many books dealing with Catholic apologetics and conversion. Such as his Surprised by Truth series. Each chapter in these books are a conversion story of a different person to the Catholic Church and their reasons for becoming Catholic. Book 2 has a conversion story of a former Mormon, Steve Clifford. His chapter is titled, “From the Latter Day Saints to the Communion of Saints”.
Other good books are:
Where is That in the Bible, by Patrick Madrid
Why is That in Tradition, by Patrick Madrid
The Gift of the Church, by Monsignor Bob Guste
Why Do Catholics Do That, by Kevin Orlin Johnson, Ph.D
The Scriptural Roots of Catholic Teaching, How the Bible Proves the Truth of the Catholic Faith, by Chantal Epie
Eucharist, God Among Us, by Joan Carter McHugh
A Concise History of the Catholic Church, by Thomas Bokenkotter
There are also wonderful booklets on the Catholic faith and history put out by the Knights of Columbus called, "The Luke E. Hart Series, Basic Elements of the Catholic Faith.
God bless you for your efforts in trying to bring your Mormon friend God’s truth. My prayers are with you.
