The Little Book of Mormon, a Berkshire Essential, offers coverage of topics such as church-state relations, environmental interests of the church, and the religions potential in future US social and political agendas.
Little Book of Mormon
With a hit musical about the Mormons on Broadway and a Mormon recently having run for US president, Berkshire Publishing brings you The Little Book of Mormon, guaranteed to tell much more about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and its members than a popular TV series (Big Love), Broadway musical (The Book of Mormon), mainstream media, and political pundits combined. This little book includes articles by eleven scholars – some of them Mormons, other not – whose interests in the faith range from historical perspectives on persecution to modern analyses of church-state relations, rituals and practices, and conflicting ideologies about peace and war. It comes to you at a time when global citizens need to be better-informed about a religion that has been both controversial and quietly accepted since its founding in the United States in the 1840s.
