From the Publisher

Why Read the Book Called ‘Joseph Part I’?Perhaps no man in the last two hundred years has attracted more religious opposition or devotion than Joseph Smith, all because he claimed he was called of God and ministered to by divine messengers from God to restore the lost Church which Christ had personally established in the days of the New Testament. Here now are the true events of the first twenty-five years of the life of Joseph Smith (1805-1844). This work is a modified motion picture screenplay to facilitate a quick, accurate and chronological read of the events that culminated to form a modern church membership of nearly fifteen million members worldwide as of this year in 2013. Eighty photos and paintings of key places and individuals are included to help the reader visualize and appreciate these events within their proper context. Respectfully,George M. Papa

The emergence of the Christian right’s political influence in the 1970s, for example, just as experts said religion was losing its place in U.S. culture, was shocking. But in her new major work on the subject, The Evangelicals: The Struggle to Shape America, historian Frances FitzGerald (who won a Pulitzer in 1973 for Fire in the Lake) shows how the origins of these booms are dis

Why White Evangelicals Are Feeling Hopeful About Trump

Right now, a large group of Americans are feeling very hopeful about Donald Trump’s presidency. In polls, they show up in different demographic categories: They’re Republicans; they’re Trump voters; they’re of all different ages and from every geographic region. But the group that stands out—the label that best seems to characterize people in the U.S. who are feeling better than they did three weeks ago because of Trump—is white evangelical Christians. A new survey by the Public Religion Research Institute and The Atlantic found that 39 percent of self-identified evangelicals who are white fee

Why Educated Christians Are Sticking With Church

The idea is peppered through the writings of scholars, great thinkers, and New Atheist-types: Education is the cure for religion. Freud wrote that civilization “has little to fear from educated people and brain-workers” who have rejected religion. And “if religious instruction were not allowed until the child had attained the age of reason,” maintained Christopher Hitchens, “we would be living in a quite different world.” New data from the Pew Research Center doesn’t disprove these claims, but it does challenge them. While Americans with college experience are overall less likely to attend ser
