No one could create a compilation of primary sources on Mormonism that would satisfy everyone―however, Givens and Neilson have crafted a very worthy anthology that will serve its ostensible primary purpose: a resource for university-level Mormon Studies... this is an excellent contribution to the field. (Bryan Buchanan Association for Mormon Letters)
Mormon-studies courses have several college-level textbooks to choose from, but none can wear the label "sourcebook" quite like this one amply substantive. Highly recommended for most academic libraries. (Booklist)
Academic libraries with a focus on religious studies will want to add this invaluable resource to their collections. (American Reference Books Annual)
Students of Mormon history would do well to examine the faith and its history through these revealing sources, and I hope the book finds its way into numerous syllabi. (Journal of Mormon History)
This wonderful collection is useful for both libraries and Mormon Studies scholars. (Nova Religio)
This collection of documents, edited by two of the ablest and most prolific of Mormon historians, provides the most comprehensive sourcebook available.... It's a treasure. (Grant Wacker The Christian Century)
The carefully curated source material and the expertly crafted annotations [...] will allow the many courses for which this volume will serve as the primary anthology to explore what it has historically meant to be a Mormon. (Mormon Studies Review)
