Mormon studies is one of the fastest-growing subfields in religious studies.
For this volume, Terryl Givens and Philip Barlow, two leading scholars of Mormonism, have brought together 45 of the top scholars in the field to construct a collection of essays that offers a comprehensive overview of scholarship on Mormons.
The book begins with a section on Mormon history, perhaps the most well-developed area of Mormon studies.
Chapters in this section deal with questions ranging from how Mormon history is studied in the university to the role women have played throughout Mormon history.
Other sections examine revelation and scripture, church structure and practice, theology, society, and culture.
The final two sections look at Mormonism in a larger context.
The authors examine Mormon expansion across theglobe-focusing on Mormonism in Latin America, the Pacific, Europe, and Asia-in addition to the interaction between Mormonism and other social systems, such as law, politics, and other faiths. Bringing together an unprecedented body of scholarship in the field of Mormon studies, The Oxford Handbook of Mormonism will be an invaluable resource for those within the field, as well as for people studying the broader, ever-changing American religious landscape.
