Mormonism: Delving into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints - December 10, 2007 11:00 AM
According to statistics gathered by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the formal name for the Mormon Church), more than two-thirds of Utah’s inhabitants are Mormon. The current Church membership is almost 13 million people worldwide, and Mormonism is allegedly the second fastest growing U.S. religion. The Church is the most affluent church per capita in the United States.

This guide will teach you about Mormon beliefs, practices, and history; introduce you to Mormon news sources and illustrate the religion’s place in current events; and help you connect with the Mormon online community.
