An alphabetical reference consisting of 1,200 articles on The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the faith of nearly one in 59 Americans and over seven million members worldwide. "The Board of Editors," says editor-in-chief Ludlow, "tried to place themselves respectively in the frame of mind of interested non-Mormons, recent converts, and established members of the Church. What questions might these groups have about the Church, and what topics would they like to have discussed?" The result is the complete history of the faith, including details on: Joseph Smith and the revelation of the Book of Mormon; Mormon westward migration, their confrontations with the federal government, and their initial economic struggles; and the distinctive Mormon outlook on business, health, family, and faith. The Encyclopedia is fully cross-referenced, indexed by subject and name, illustrated, and includes the Book of Mormon, the Doctrine and Covenants, and the Pearl of Great Price.
