Publisher's Summary

Mormonism, or the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, is America's most successful - and most misunderstood - homegrown religion. The church today boasts more than 15 million members worldwide, a remarkable feat in the face of increasing secularity. The growing presence of Mormonism shows no signs of abating, as the makeup of its membership becomes progressively diverse. The heightened contemporary relevance and increasingly global membership of the Church solidifies Mormonism as a religious group much deserving of awareness.

Covering the origins, history, and modern challenges of the church, Mormonism: What Everyone Needs to Know offers listeners a brief, authoritative guide to one of the fastest growing faith groups of the 21st century, providing answers to questions such as:

  • What circumstances gave rise to the birth of Mormonism?
  • Why was Utah chosen as a place of refuge?
  • Do you have to believe the Book of Mormon to be a Latter-Day Saint?
  • Why do women not hold the priesthood?
  • How wealthy is the church, and how much are top leaders paid?

Written by a believer and the premier scholar of the Latter-Day Saints faith, this remarkably accessible introduction provides a sympathetic but unstinting account of one of the few religious traditions to maintain its vitality and growth in an era of widespread disaffiliation.
