"This is an astonishing story, told incredibly well. Coke Newell has helped lift the Latter-day Saints into the forefront of Christian discourse and relevance." --Stephen R. Covey, internationally bestselling author of 7 Habits of Highly Effective People
"This engaging introduction to Mormon history and doctrine from the viewpoint of a convert gives a good idea of why Mormonism attracts and holds so many modern Americans. Along with the facts of history, one gets a feeling for the unconquerable spirit of the Mormon people." --Richard L. Bushman, Gouverneur Morris Professor of History at Columbia University, author of Joseph Smith and the Beginnings of Mormonism and The Refinement of America: Person, Houses, Cities
"A 'tiny sect' in Utah 150 years ago has grown into an 11-million-member church found around the globe. This makes Latter Days a most welcome volume. False and flawed opinions about Mormon beliefs and practices abound. Coke Newell's forthright, clearly written, even fascinating account of Latter-day Saint doctrine and history should help clear the air." --Allan Carlson, president of the Howard Center for Family, Religion and Society and publisher of The Family in America.
