This engaging, hard-hitting overview of Mormon beliefs and history illuminates one of the most critical issues in the 2012 race:
WHAT DOES THE RISING INFLUENCE OF MORMONISM MEAN FOR AMERICA?
"If a man's faith is sincere, it is the most important thing about him and it is impossible to understand who he is and how he will lead without first understanding the religious vision that informs his life." --Stephen Mansfield
Mormons and Mormonism are moving into the spotlight in pop culture, politics, sports, and entertainment: including presidential candidate Mitt Romney. Mormonism has now emerged as one of the fastest-growing religions and a high-impact mainstream influence. Stephen Mansfield, the acclaimed New York Times bestseller, writes this important story at a pivotal moment in American history.
The Mormonizing of America is critical to understanding our times, our culture--and our future as a country. Backed by up-to-date research, personal anecdotes, and a 16-page photo section, Mansfield examines the influence of the LDS church--past, present, and future. He debunks common myths, expounds on the Church's beliefs, and unveils many of the mysteries surrounding this influential religion and its loyal members.
