“The problem with associating Mormonism and Americanism is that people expect Mormons to behave like Americans.” p.8
“The spark lit in the first edition began burning for a second. Thanks to colleagues, friends and family for feedback that nuances and enlivens this new edition. I still do not consider this a definitive volume but an evolving process to disguss an intricate global network of Mormons while acknowledging challenges and obstacles….” p.6
“Karthik Thandavamurthy wouldn’t mind signing an autograph, especially for a couple of twinkle under lovely loppy lashes. Karthik is Mormon. He’s Indian from Bangalaru. He’s Deaf. He also loves working with Mormon missionaries to translate for other deaf Indians interested in learning more about the Mormons.

“My roommate in Jerusalem was a convert. Four of us roomed together in Brigham Young University’s Jerusalem campus set on a lovely hill overlooking the Old City on the West Bank. She was the first convert with whom I had close interaction. I was eighteen and impressionable. She took it as her mission to open my eyes to the outside world. Mormons, she felt, were too sheltered.” p.44
