Mormons & Polygamy (Setting the Record Straight)
Subject to credit approval. See terms - opens in a new window or tab. Jul 18, Ryder rated it liked it. Relative to other books of the same series, this particular book leaves a lot to be desired. While the subject matter is certainly interesting enough, and more so that it's from the point of view of an active, black LDS professor, it does nothing to answer questions.
What I mean is that he simply recognizes each common rumour and misconception about the priesthood ban and debunks it with distorted logic. He does offer some hypothesis as to the possible reasons for the ban, but none are satisfacto Relative to other books of the same series, this particular book leaves a lot to be desired. He does offer some hypothesis as to the possible reasons for the ban, but none are satisfactory. If you've read what Bruce R.
Setting 'Mormon' semantics record straight
McConkie said on the subject following the lifting of the priesthood ban, that's basically the same conclusion as this book. This series does have some good reads though. If you can find Mormons and Masons or Mormons and Homosexuality; they are far more rewarding reads. I think I heard that this series is no longer in print so finding them may be difficult, but it may answer some burning questions; depending on the individual and the questions.
I loved how this book explores and explains the ban on the priesthood for blacks.
Books - Joseph Smith's Polygamy
It's great that it's written by a black member of the church who is also a great scholar. Everything he says is personal testimony or explained within the context of doctrine. It's a short book but maybe not described as a "quick read. There really is no absolute answer for why blacks were denied the priesthood, but the main point now is that it is all in the past and God will reveal it to us when the time is right, so why continue to beat upon the subject.

I'm interested about this book since one of the reviewers explained a lot about the book that make it seem like it doesn't do much good. I wonder how it compares to things like the documentary, "Nobody Knows Jul 26, Bryce rated it really liked it. Well-researched, with some great insights, but not the most exciting read. That said, it will be my standard go-to book from now on whenever someone has a sincere question or strong but shallow opinion about this important, but somewhat nuanced, topic. Journalists are people, too.

Jun 10, Melissa rated it really liked it. I have read books about polygamy from anti-Mormons and from Mormon authors. I think this book offers more truth than any other book on the subject. To find out about Mormonism you wouldn't ask a Catholic you should ask a Mormon. Just to point out the obvious the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ that practices modern day polygamy is not a part of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints Mormons This book talks about the History of Polygamy not the Fundamentalist cults that exist tod I have read books about polygamy from anti-Mormons and from Mormon authors.

Apr 13, Joy Sterrantino rated it it was amazing. There is a ridiculous amount of misinformation out there on this subject, so I thought I'd read this to see what I did and didn't know. Embry is a fantastic scholar, neutral in her explanation of her data, which is not how this subject is usually handled.
It is much more comprehensive than other books I've read.
