ADVANCE PRAISE FOR COULD I VOTE FOR A MORMON FOR PRESIDENT?
“Cragun and Phillips’ irreverent guide for the perplexed tells you everything you need to know about Mormonism this election season.”
— Mark Silk, Professor of Religion in Public Life, Trinity College, and author of One Nation, Divisible: How Regional Religious Differences Shape American Politics
“Ryan Cragun and Rick Phillips have written a scholarly but highly accessible analysis of Mormonism in politics that is even-handed, educational, enlightening, and even entertaining. It should be read by anyone who’s planning to vote for Mitt Romney – or against him.”
— Geoffrey Kabaservice, author of Rule and Ruin: The Downfall of Moderation and the Destruction of the Republican Party, from Eisenhower to the Tea Party
“Cragun and Phillips have brilliantly performed the rare task of both making Mormonism intelligible to the outsider and opening its hermetic self to comparative understanding. To this they bring their deep knowledge of mainstream Christianity as sociologists of religion as well as their well-schooled but native knowledge of Mormonism.”
— David Knowlton, Professor of Anthropology, Utah Valley University, and President of the Mormon Social Science Association
