- How did Mormon fundamentalism begin?
- Does LDS theology teach that plural marriage is required for exaltation?
- Did early Church leaders have children with wives as young as fourteen?
Mormon fundamentalists like the FLDS, the Allreds, Tom Green, the Kingstons, the LeBarons, and others have captured the national spotlight off and on for years. They claim to be the guardians of fundamental principles The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has jettisoned. Is that so? This book analyzes their history, explaining how and why these groups evolved outside of the LDS Church.
In addition, it addresses questions regarding the law of consecration, teenage brides, the 1890 Manifesto, the sealing keys, the "one mighty and strong" mentioned in the Doctrine and Covenants, an 1886 revelation to John Taylor, high priest apostles, section 132 of the Doctrine and Covenants (on celestial and plural marriage), the Adam-God theory, polygamy in eternity, proper priesthood ordinations, and others.
The award-winning author of Modern Polygamy and Mormon Fundamentalism: The Generations After the Manifesto (GregKofford Books, 2006) Brian C. Hales, presents this intriguing new look at Mormon fundamentalism.
