Editorial Reviews

Review

"It is significant that historians have chosen to better understand the history of Mormons by looking at their folklore, including their expressions of the supernatural . . . Some historians might have viewed these legends as peripheral to the main story of the church and its members, but here we see that they help fill out and give form to the story."
—Elaine Thatcher, foreword to Between Pulpit and Pew



"An excellent compilation."
— Benjamin E. Zeller, Nova Religio

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is less a book than a collection of some extremely dry scholarly papers. The material is presented without style or flourish, and there is nothing in the way of tone or narration that would match what the subject matter and/or the whimsical cover would imply.

Instead, you trudge through some pretty dense material (one section takes no less than 5 pages to recount historical parallels in ancient Calvinism before it even gets to the Church) that is surprisingly adversarial and critical, going out of its way to highlight what it sees as inconsistencies in Church history and within the words and conduct of the general authorities. Since few of these assertions are published with any context and all sourcing is apparently assumed by the authors to be iron-clad, the reader could come away with many false impressions.

Interesting read on an interesting subject, how the Mormon church has evolved through their lore. It was informative and fun to read. I'm grateful for their research.

If you live in a predominantly Mormon area, you may have heard stories linking the biblical Cain to Bigfoot, or whispers about the Bear Lake Monster. Have you ever wanted to know more about the intersection between Mormonism and the supernatural? Where did these stories originate? Why do they perpetuate? Seven such topics are examined in this recent release from USU Press.
