The Mormonizing of America
How the Mormon Religion Became A Dominant Force in Politics, Entertainment, and Pop Culture
Religion/Christian Life/Social Issues
Mormonism has made an unprecedented leap forward in American culture, and Stephen Mansfield has documented its rise from the cultic to the common—and what they really believe.
Stephen Mansfield, the acclaimed New York Times best-selling author, has highlighted the growing popularity of Mormonism—a belief system with cultic roots—and the implications of its critical rise. Mormons are moving into the spotlight in pop culture, politics, sports, and entertainment via presidential candidates like Romney and Huntsman, media personality Glenn Beck, mega-bestselling Twilight author Stephanie Meyer, and The Book of Mormon, the hottest show on Broadway. Mormonism was once a renegade cult at war with the U.S. Army in the 1800s, but it has now emerged as not only the fastest-growing religion, but as a high-impact mainstream cultural influence.
Stephen Mansfield appears frequently on The Sean Hannity Show, Fox and Friends, CNN Newsroom, MSNBC News Live, Morning Joe, and other programs to talk about politics, religion, and pop culture. His strength is at the intersection of religion, politics, and pop culture. He lives in Nashville, TN.
