"Featuring the work of the major scholars conducting social science research on Mormonism today, the volume has much to tell not only about Mormonism but also about the nature of successful religious movements; secularization and assimilation; boundary maintenance; identity formation; recruitment; church growth; life changes; patriarchy and gender roles; and institutional change."--Jacket."
