Editorial Reviews


«Tark’s comprehensive use of primary sources and his ability to work with...writings in the original language (Korean) results in a fine comparative study of how two religious movements have recurrently adapted their teachings about marriage and the family over time. While he highlights some fascinating parallels in the way each founder created a distinctive identity for his movement by connecting beliefs and practices to the mission of building God’s Kingdom on earth, he sees strikingly different outcomes and prospects for sustainability and growth.» (Phyllis D. Airhart, Associate Professor, Emmanuel College, University of Toronto)
«Ji-il Tark’s research is highly innovative in that it opens a whole new dimension to the study of Mormonism and of the Unification Church. His work provides a thoughtfully conceived, fully examined, and useful description of how individualism and multiculturalism have influenced the growth of family-related religious movements since World War II.» (Young-Sik Yoo, Associate Professor, East Asian Studies, University of Toronto)
