Description
 
The Mormon Church -- The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints -- is one of the worldís fastest-growing religions. This book traces the groupís tumultuous history, from its  origins in New York State in 1830 to its present international stature. Introduces the faithís early leaders, Joseph Smith and Brigham Young, delves  into Mormon rites and traditions, follows the trail of the Mormon pioneers into the West, evokes the rise of Salt Lake City, and describes the skirmishes and court battles between Mormons and their neighbors, other religions, and the U.S. govít. Describes the churchís institutional apparatus, the role of women in Mormon affairs, both before and after the Mormonsí practice of polygamy, and how the church has addressed the challenges of modernity.
