Editorial Reviews

Review

"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

By Crazy Horse on November 18, 2011
Format: Paperback
Eric A. Eliason, ed. Mormons and Mormonism: An Introduction to an American World Religion. Urbana: University of Illinois Press, 2001. ix + 250 pp., with index. $17.95 (paperback); $39.95 (hardback).

This collection of eleven Mormon studies makes available to the Saints the work of such scholars as Nathan O. Hatch, Richard T.Hughes, and Rodney Stark, each well known for his work on American religion and its history. Eliason has augmented these papers with some of the better work by Latter-day Saints and others. However, only a few of the essays have been revised or updated for this volume. It is noteworthy that Eliason has reprinted a portion of Terryl L. Givens, The Viper on the Hearth: Mormons, Myths, and the Construction of Heresy (New York: Oxford University Press, 1997), 76--93. This remarkable book--a major study in anti-Mormon rhetoric--was not widely known by Latter-day Saints until the publication in 2002 by Oxford University Press of Givens's By the Hand of Mormon: The American Scripture That Launched a New World Religion. The other essays are much better known to Latter-day Saint scholars. Eliason's introduction to this volume constitutes a well-documented, candid overview of the range of topics covered in this anthology.

Format: Paperback
I can't wait to read this. Interesting that neither Mormons or ex-mormons have started a flame war on this book and completely ignored it That means it is probably good because both can't be bothered to read academic writing.
