The Millenarian World of Early Mormonism

Cover
University of Illinois Press, 1999 - 224 Seiten
The most detailed study yet of early Mormon thought about the "end
times," The Millenarian World of Early Mormonism shows how
early LDS interpretation of the Bible and the Book of Mormon affected,
and was affected by, Mormon millennial doctrines. Grant Underwood provides
the first comprehensive linkage of the history of early Mormonism and
millennial thought, reassessing Mormonism's relationship to the dominant
culture and placing Mormon millennial thought in the broader context of
Judeo-Christian ideas about the end of the world.
"A model of first-rate scholarship and balanced interpretation;
it has much to say not only to those interested in Mormon history but
also to anyone seeking to understand the role of millenarian ideas in
the American experience." -- Michael Barkun, Journal of American
History
"No serious student of early Mormon history should fail to read
this book." -- L. B. Tipson, Choice
"A signal contribution to Mormon studies. Anyone who wishes to explore
the core of the Mormon identity in the nineteenth century will have to
come to terms with this book." -- Richard T. Hughes, author of Reviving
the Ancient Faith: The Story of Churches of Christ in America
