Summary "Founded in 19th-century America, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (whose members are informally known as Mormons) is neither Protestant nor Catholic, but claims to be a restoration of original Christianity by revelation to a modern-day prophet. Begun with six charter members in 1830, the Mormon Church has grown to prominence as a worldwide religion"--Dust jacket.
