Summary
"The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints began as a small band of New York farmers in 1830. And they had a mystrious tale to tell: All Christianity has been corrupted; but now an angel has appeared to the Prophet Joseph Smith. There is a new religion today based on a 'restored gospel,' entrusted to 'the only true church." Soon known as 'Mormons,' they took their message to the world. They suffered fierce persecturion and saw hundresds of their fellow Saints die in their trek west. Finally, they settled in the Great Salt Lake basin and built the Mormon society of their dreams. Now, nearly 200 years after their founding, the Latter-day Saints have become one of the great success stories in American religion. Their church is thriving, their message has spread around the world, and Mormon entertainers, authors, politicians, athletes, news commentators, management gurus, and CEOs shine in their fields. yet they are nearly as muhch a mystery to Americans now as they ever were. How did it happen, and what does it mean for us today? How did a despised sect become one of the most influential religions on US society, acheiving what Newsweek magazine called our present 'Mormon Monument'?"--Dustjacket flap
