Mormon Lives: A Year in the Elkton Ward
This pathbreaking cultural study is a candid portrayal of what it's like to be Mormon. Mormon Lives presents oral histories of more than one hundred church members from a diverse congregation of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Maryland and Delaware and places them within narratives about church activities during a typical year. These ordinary ward members reflect on agreements and disagreements with church practices, women's responsibilities, the role of missionary work in the growth of the church, interactions within the congregation, and personal testimonies. The book presents a dramatic portrait of life in the Elkton Ward, a microcosm of the Mormon Church outside Utah and a more typical Mormon way of life-far from the center of the church-than that ordinarily depicted.
