Abstract

The article discusses the direction taken by Mormonism since World War II. According to the author, Mormonism started out as an idiosyncratic form of Trinitarian Christianity. But rather than calling the existing scriptural foundation of Christianity into question, its new scripture served as a support for the Old and New Testaments. This ecclesiastical body appeared to be one more church among a veritable multitude of diverse Christian institutions.
