Editorial Reviews

Review

“Mauss’s contribution to Mormon scholarship and to sociological theory was to argue that over time Mormonism had adjusted the degree of strain with the rest of the world. This ongoing adjustment phenomenon had not been recognized by sociologists before Mauss discovered it in Mormonism. Now it has become a significant corollary to the theory of New Religious Movements. Mauss always stood at the shifting border between the university and the church, ready to step across onto the church side whenever he could make a difference.”—from the foreword by Richard L. Bushman

Armand L. Mauss is emeritus professor of sociology and ­religious studies at Washington State University, and has more recently taught Mormon Studies as an adjunct faculty member at Claremont Graduate University. He is author or editor of several books, including All Abraham’s Children: Changing Mormon Conceptions of Race and Lineage and The Angel and the Beehive: The Mormon Struggle with Assimilation.

I confess freely that the author is also my father, and I have grown up watching his struggles and development. Never did I witness disloyalty to his core convictions, nor did his actions ever betray his chosen belief system. In "Shifting Borders..." readers get a glimpse into one man's journey of faith as he chose a life course as an intellectual.

I highly recommend this book to readers inside or outside of the Mormon tradition, intellectual or traditionalist, to help all understand that we are in this together and, that by developing a broader understanding of each other's journeys, there is hope that we can all work together for the common benefit of all seekers.

Very balanced assessment of some of the most complex issues currently facing the LDS religion. His approach is respectful of the deeply held beliefs of most Mormon's, even while challenging many of our underlying assumptions about church leadership and direction.
