This book is about harnessing the power of the Internet to enhance Mormon life and to help the Mormon community communicate and grow. Author LauraMaery Gold eschews the usual start of an Internet book--the explanation of what the Net is and how it can be used--and kicks off instead with a section called "Building a Community." However, those who'd like the book to lead them online shouldn't be discouraged; Gold gets to the Internet basics later in the book, once a comfortable ambiance has already been built up to buffer the technology talk.
Mormons on the Internet looks at the Internet as part of the bigger picture, through discussion of the Mormon community and the church's mission. Then the book goes full electrons ahead with a directory of resources, which includes sites for Mormon publications, history, and education; resources for teachers, students, families, and singles; family history databases; scriptural study resources; information for and about missions; and places to find good online conversation. In addition, the resource list tackles controversial issues and offbeat sites devoted to Mormon science fiction fans and Latter Day Saints' humor. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

as a member of the minority religious persuasion in the Salt Lake City community and a jew.
I found some of the reccommendations disturbing. I am sure amazon will delete this review because it seems that one cannot criticize books on religion.
I will leave out all the disturbing passages i found and just say as a Jew and a person of color. i do not find this book enlightening, i find it opinionated and smug!
