Mormonism the Islam of America
1912. Illustrated. From the Editorial Committee: The title of this, the latest of the textbooks issued by the Council of Women for Home Missions, may need a word of explanation. It is generally acknowledged that Mormonism is similar to Mohammedanism in its endorsement of the practice of polygamy, and its ideas of heaven. Many other points of similarity between these systems have been noted by students, and the Book of Mormon has marked resemblance to the Koran. As all ancient religions have a modern equivalent, Mormonism can justly be claimed to be the modern form of Mohammedanism, and not incorrectly termed the Islam of America. Contents: History of the Mormons; The Sacred Books of the Mormons; Organization and Methods of the Mormon Church; Mormonism as a Religion; Mormonism as a Life; and Missions Among the Mormons.
