Mormons and Mormonism An Introduction to an American World Religion Press Reviews

Provides college students with a useful introduction to the Latter-day Saint religion in the U.S. -- Choice ADVANCE PRAISE This is a useful and balanced collection, one that brings together from disparate sources some of the best scholarship on Mormonism. - Randall Balmer, author of Blessed Assurance: A History of Evangelicalism in America Every so often we need a compilation of the latest and best in Mormon studies. This collection edited by Eric Eliason, better than anything in print, gives us an idea of where we stand right now. Based on this work, Eliason makes the startling assertion that we must now look at Mormonism as an emergent world religion. A far cry from the older view of Mormonism as a cult, this judgment, if it holds, will require a broad reassessment of how we conduct Mormon studies. - Richard L. Bushman, author of Joseph Smith and the Beginnings of Mormonism
