THE VIPER ON THE HEARTH -  Mormons, Myths, and the Construction of Heresy, Givens, Terryl
1 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)

2 Covenant and Chosenness in Judaism and Mormonism

Madsen, Truman G. , Jospe, Raphael, and Ward, SethNew in New Dust Jacket, Fairleigh Dickinson University Press, 2001, Provo, UT


Brand new book! Never been read! ; Covenant and chosenness resonate deeply in both Mormon and Jewish traditions. For both of these communities, covenant and chosenness represent enduring interpretations of scriptural texts and promises, ever-present in themes of divine worship and liturgy. The chapters of this volume written by leading scholars of both communities, debate scriptural foundations, the "signs of the covenant," the development of theological ideas about covenant, and issues of inclusivity and exclusivity implied by chosenness. ; 6.5" x 9.25"; 225 pages,

Perspectives on Mormon Theology;   Apologetics, Van Dyke, Blair G. &  Loyd Isao Ericson &  Michael R. Ash &  Daniel C. Peterson &  Ralph C. Hancock &  Julie M. Smith &  Fiona Givens &  David Bokovoy &  Joseph M Spencer &  Brian D. Birch
3 Perspectives on Mormon Theology; Apologetics

Van Dyke, Blair G. & Loyd Isao Ericson & Michael R. Ash & Daniel C. Peterson & Ralph C. Hancock & Julie M. Smith & Fiona Givens & David Bokovoy & Joseph M Spencer & Brian D. BirchNew, Greg Kofford Books, 2017, Salt Lake City, UT


Brand new softcover book!

; This volume in the Perspectives on Mormon Theology series is an exploration of Mormon apologetics—or the defense of faith. Since its very beginning, various Latter-day Saints have sought to utilize evidence and reason to actively promote or defend beliefs and claims within the Mormon tradition. Mormon apologetics reached new levels of sophistication as believers trained in fields such as Near-Eastern languages and culture, history, and philosophy began to utilize their knowledge and skills to defend their beliefs.

The contributors to this volume seek to explore the textures and contours of apologetics from multiple perspectives, revealing deep theological and ideological fissures within the Mormon scholarly community concerning apologetics. However, in spite of deep-seated differences, what each author has in common is a passion for Mormonism and how it is presented and defended. This volume captures that reality and allows readers to encounter the terrain of Mormon apologetics at close range.
