“Global Mormonism in the 21st Century” now available from BYU Religious Studies Center

“Global Mormonism in the 21st Century,” a new book from the Religious Studies Center at Brigham Young University, is taken from 17 years of conferences on the globalization of Mormonism and is the beginning of an effort to fill in a significant gap in the history of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

The International Society, backed by BYU’s David M. Kennedy Center for International Studies, Marriott School of Management, J. Reuben Clark Law School, Department of Educational Leadership and Alumni Association, has hosted these annual conferences on the BYU campus in Provo, Utah.

The editor of “Global Mormonism,” Reid L. Neilson, has taken 20 presentations from the conferences and organized them into five themed sections. The result is an attempt to begin telling these non-North American stories of the growth of the Church of Jesus Christ with greater frequency and with better skill.

“The volume helps fill a gap in international Church history, the result of a number of mistaken beliefs, such as international Church history is too recent to chronicle, the hub of Mormon studies is northern Utah or international Church history lacks the interest of early American Mormonism, to name just a few,” said Stephanie Wilson, RSC production manager.

Scholarly observers of the Christian tradition—of which the Church of Jesus Christ is a part—are beginning to expand their visions of a Christian past, present and future to embrace a global Christianity, she said.

The volume will be available through the BYU Bookstore for $19.99. For more information, contact Stephanie Wilson at (801) 422-3293.
