Narrates the story from the founding of the church in 1830 by Joseph Smith to the present day (1957), with special emphasis on the lives of smith and of the fabulous Brigham Young, whose leadereship of the Mormon community after Smith's death in 1844 lasted untilhis own death in 1877. It is a saga of the fantastic economic and social growth of a vigorous peole, living a modified communal life based on a strong religious faith in their destiny: to found the Kingdom of God on earth. Driven from one settlement to another, they finally undertook an almost incredible mass migration from Illinois across the plains and mountians to what is now Utah. An often tempest-tossed story, dominated by the remarkable figure of Brigham Young, it is also the hisotry of a religion that comines the practicalities of everyday life with deep mysticism, revelatin, polygmay as a religious duty, and rites which have repeatedly attacked by those antagonistic to Mormonism.

In this book, James Coates tackles the mysterious Mormon Church. In 1823, Joseph Smith claimed he beheld an angel named Moroni on his father's impoverished farm near Palmyra, N.Y. According to Smith, Moroni--a resurrected member of a vanished American tribe that migrated to America from Israel--had appeared to him in order to guide him to a hill called Cumorah. There, by using a "seer stone," Smith apparently uncovered an Old Testament-era breastplate inscribed with the names of God's saved and a pair of sacred stone spectacles called the Urim and the Thummin. He also claimed he found plates that contained the text of the Bible before it was corrupted by the established church. No one ever saw these marvelous objects; according to his scribe, when Smith dictated the Book of Mormon, he "would put the seer stone in the hat, drawing it closely around his face to exclude the light; and in the darkness the spiritual light would shine." Nonetheless, this rambunctious visionary gave rise to a religion that inspired folks from Brigham Young to humble European factory-workers to risk death crossing the prairie to the high, dry haven of Salt Lake City. Today, an aging hierarchy of these "Latter Day Saints" struggles to live down the outlaw days of polygamy and blood atonement (both still practiced by the survivalist fringe). Coates describes how Mormons remain both wildly mystical (baptizing ancestors for the millenium with the aid of huge computers) and shrewdly pragmatic (grooming pr christian books and bibles,christian denominations and sects,education and reference,mormonism,politics and social sciences,religion and spirituality,social sciences Christian Books & Bibles, Perseus Books
