Why I'm a Mormon, Cannon, Joseph A.
1 Why I'm a Mormon

Cannon, Joseph A.New, Ensign Peak, 2012, Sacramento


Brand new softcover book! ; Why I m a Mormon is a collection of fascinating, individual journeys of faith by dozens of stalwart, modern Mormons some prominent, others less well-known but no less impressive. Contributors share brief reflections on how their feelings about the gospel and their involvement in the Church have shaped and enriched their lives. These vignettes are from Latter-day Saints who are faithfully and successfully navigating these troubled, secular, sometimes dark and temptationladen times. The book includes expressions from successful business leaders, entertainers, sports figures, authors, and many others, including Jane Clayson Johnson, David Archuleta, Steve Young, Larry Gelwix, Brandon Mull, Anne Perry, Dave Rose, Stephanie Nielson, and Alex Boyé. While other Latter-day Saints are the primary audience for this book, the essays in this book should resonate with all people of faith. Given the increasing national and international attention focused on The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, this book will provide a window into the modern-day Church for journalists and others interested in the phenomenon of the rise of Mormonism.; 1 x 8.9 x 5.9 Inches; 320 pages,

THE VIPER ON THE HEARTH -  Mormons, Myths, and the Construction of Heresy, Givens, Terryl
2 THE VIPER ON THE HEARTH - Mormons, Myths, and the Construction of Heresy

Givens, TerrylNew, Oxford University Press, 1997, New York; Oxford


Brand new softcover book!


Published in 1997, Terryl Givens's The Viper on the Hearth was widely praised as a landmark work--indeed, The Wall Street Journal hailed it as "one of the five best books on Mormonism." Now, in the wake of a tidal wave of Mormon-inspired artistic, literary, and political activity--ranging from the Broadway hit The Book of Mormon, to the HBO series Big Love, to the political campaign of Mitt Romney--Givens presents an updated edition that addresses the continuing presence and reception of the Mormon image in contemporary culture.

The Viper on the Hearth showed how nineteenth- and twentieth-century American writers frequently cast the Mormon as a stock villain in such fictional genres as mysteries, westerns, and popular romances. If today some authors like Tom Clancy use "Mormon" as shorthand for "clean cut and patriotic," earlier writers more often depicted the Mormons as a violent and perverse people--the "viper on the hearth"--who sought to violate the domestic sphere of the mainstream. Givens is the first to reveal how popular fiction constructed an image of the Mormon as a religious and social Other. The list of authors includes both American and English writers, from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's first Sherlock Holmes mystery to Zane Grey's Riders of the Purple Sage, from Robert Louis Stevenson's The Dynamiter to Jack London's Star Rover.

For this edition, Givens has expanded the final chapter, shedding further light on the Mormon presence in contemporary American culture, with insightful discussions of topics ranging from the musical, The Book of Mormon, to the political campaigns of Mitt Romney and Jon Huntsman.

New to this Edition:

New chapter addressing Mormon presence in American culture, including theater (The Book of Mormon musical), literature (the Twilight saga), and politics (the Huntsman and Romney campaigns)

People of Paradox;   A History of Mormon Culture, Givens, Terryl L.
3 People of Paradox; A History of Mormon Culture

Givens, Terryl L.New, Oxford University Press, 2012, 


Brand new softcover book!


In People of Paradox, Terryl Givens traces the rise and development of Mormon culture from the days of Joseph Smith in upstate New York, through Brigham Young's founding of the Territory of Deseret on the shores of Great Salt Lake, to the spread of the Latter-Day Saints around the globe.

Throughout the last century and a half, Givens notes, distinctive traditions have emerged among the Latter-Day Saints, shaped by dynamic tensions--or paradoxes--that give Mormon cultural expression much of its vitality. Here is a religion shaped by a rigid authoritarian hierarchy and radical individualism; by prophetic certainty and a celebration of learning and intellectual investigation; by existence in exile and a yearning for integration and acceptance by the larger world. Givens divides Mormon history into two periods, separated by the renunciation of polygamy in 1890. In each, he explores the life of the mind, the emphasis on education, the importance of architecture and urban planning (so apparent in Salt Lake City and Mormon temples around the world), and Mormon accomplishments in music and dance, theater, film, literature, and the visual arts. He situates such cultural practices in the context of the society of the larger nation and, in more recent years, the world. Today, he observes, only fourteen percent of Mormon believers live in the United States.

Mormonism has never been more prominent in public life. But there is a rich inner life beneath the public surface, one deftly captured in this sympathetic, nuanced account by a leading authority on Mormon history and thought.

No Weapon Shall Prosper - New Light on Sensitive Issues, Millet, Robert L
5 No Weapon Shall Prosper - New Light on Sensitive Issues

Millet, Robert LNew in New Dust Jacket, Religious Education, Brigham Young University, 2011, Provo, UT


Brand new hardcover book!

; From the time Joseph Smith walked out of the grove of trees having experienced a vision and having spoken with God and Jesus Christ, his words have opened the door to persecution. As disciples of Christ, we ought to be serious students of the gospel who are able to provide a defense of our faith. In this book, LDS scholars discuss criticisms of the Church on a variety of issues, including the question of whether Mormons are Christian, the various accounts of Joseph Smith's First Vision, and LDS beliefs about becoming like God, continuing revelation, and plural marriage. The book also includes chapters about DNA research and the Book of Mormon, along with the role of evidence and the need for honesty in religious discussion. This volume does not address every point of opposition, but it does provide thoughtful and reliable answers to several hard questions. Contributors include

• Richard Neitzel Holzapfel
• John W. Welch
• Camille Fronk Olson
• Brent L. Top
• Daniel K Judd
• Steven C. Harper
