The Vision of Mormonism: Amazon Kindle Version

"...useful as an informal introduction to Mormon doctrine....One of Millet's key concerns is to engage the question of whether or not Mormons are Christian. As such, his discussion will be of particular value to those interested in interreligious dialogue and contemporary Christianity.... Summing up: Recommended."

"Quite apart from the candidacy of Mitt Romney, Mormonism is rightly receiving more attention. To those who are looking for an irenic presentation of Mormon faith and life, I recommend Robert Millet's The Vision of Mormonism."
First Things, December 2007

“A century ago the Mormon Church was widely viewed as a morally and politically dangerous sect. Today it is widely seen as a conservative repository of old-fashioned values, an American success story.”
—Peter Steinfels, New York Times

“Given a continuation of present growth rates, the Mormon Church will achieve the status of the fourth major monotheistic faith tradition sometime during the first quarter of the twenty-first century.”
—Rodney Stark, Review of Religious Research

Is Mormonism a cult, a Christian sect or a world religion? What has given the church its appeal? What does it teach? Many people have a vague notion that Mormon teachings are unusual but that Mormons themselves are wholesome and prosperous. Written in plain language and in a conversational style, The Vision of Mormonism provides the reader with an understanding of the core ideas and practices of Mormons today.

This book, though touching here or there upon history and culture, deals principally with the teachings and beliefs of the Latter-day Saints in order for the readers to decide for themselves whether or to what extent Latter-day Saints fit on the Christian landscape or are entitled the Christian label. While it does not go into great lengths to set forth the history of the most successful indigenous American religious body, it does speak at length of the twenty-first century Mormon Church, of the Church as it exists today.
