Mormonism and Violence : The Battles of Zion Paperback / softback
Part of the Elements in Religion and Violence series
In popular culture and scholarship, a consistent trope about Mormonism is that it features a propensity for violence, born of the religion's theocratic impulses and the antinomian tendencies of special revelation.
Mormonism and Violence critically assesses the relationship of Mormonism and violence through a close examination of Mormon history and scripture, focusing on the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
The Element pays special attention to violence in the Book of Mormon and the history of the movement, from the 1830s to the present.
