by Steven L. Shields


Book Description:

Few religious movements have provided such fertile ground for schismatic tendency as has Mormonism. Almost from its inception, individuals have claimed to have a new interpretation of the original precepts of the Restoration. This book helps sort out the histories and theologies of the varied churches, movements, and expressions within the Latter Day Saint Movement.

In this fifth edition, author Steven L. Shields adds three decades of new research on recent and past expressions of Mormonism, nearly doubling the size of the volume and bringing the total to well over five hundred.
