Abstract:

About three-quarters of people who grew up Mormon used to remain in the LDS Church, but in recent years, this number has dropped to about half. This book draws on survey research and interviews to explain why so many young adults are leaving the faith, placing the Mormon story in the broader context of rising secularism in America. Along the way it gives personal stories of Mormons' missionary and temple experiences, unpacks changing understandings of the family, and explores the generational fallout of the religion's political conservatism.
