About this item

Mormonism: The Basics offers a balanced introduction to Mormonism which equips students to understand the teachings, practices, personalities and media representations of the Mormon faith. Presenting Mormonism as a religious tradition that has developed multiple expressions, it examines how each different stream has pursued a different approach to defining its identity and engaging with the larger society. In doing so it addresses such topics as:

  • What is Mormonism and how did it start?
  • Is Mormonism in tension with the state?
  • How are issues like gender, sexuality and family treated in the Mormon faith?
  • How do Mormons live their religion?
  • Where is Mormonism’s sacred space?
  • Is Mormonism a global faith?

With a detailed chronology and suggestions for further reading, Mormonism: The Basics is an ideal introduction for anyone wanting to learn more about historical and contemporary Mormonism.
