Early Mormonism and the magic world view by D. Michael Quinn( )

13 editions published between 1987 and 1998 in English and Undetermined and held by 900 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this articulate and insightful book, D. Michael Quinn, a professor of history at Brigham Young University, masterfully reconstructs the world view of an earlier age in America, finding ample evidence for treasure seeking and folk magic in Joseph Smith's formative years. Quinn discovers, for example, that Joseph's world was inhabited by supernatural creatures whose existence could be both symbolic and real. He explains that the involvement of the Joseph Smith family in folk magic was not unusual for the times and is important in attempting to understand how early Mormons may have interpreted developments in their history in ways that differ from modern, twentieth-century perceptions. Quinn's impressive research provides a much-needed background for the environment that produced Mormonism's founding prophet. -- from Book Jacket

It will be must reading for anyone interested in gay and lesbian issues and the changing concepts of friendship and sexuality. This book will be of special interest to historians, sociologists, anthropologists, religious leaders, psychiatrists, and physicians, as well as to Mormons.

The Mormon hierarchy : wealth and corporate power by D. Michael Quinn( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Early in the twentieth century, it was possible for Latter-day Saints to have lifelong associations with businesses managed by their leaders or owned and controlled by the church itself. For example, one could purchase engagement rings from Daynes Jewelry, honeymoon at the Hotel Utah, and venture off on the Union Pacific Railroad, all partially owned and run by church apostles. Families could buy clothes at Knight Woolen Mills. The husband might work at Big Indian Copper or Bullion-Beck, Gold Chain, or Iron King mining companies. The wife could shop at Utah Cereal Food and buy sugar supplied by Amalgamated or U and I Sugar, beef from Nevada Land and Livestock, and vegetables from the Growers Market. They might take their groceries home in parcels from Utah Bag Co. They probably read the Deseret News at home under a lamp plugged into a Utah Power and Light circuit. They could take out a loan from Zion’s Co-operative and insurance from Utah Home and Fire. The apostles had a long history of community involvement in financial enterprises to the benefit of the general membership and their own economic advantage. This volume is the result of the author’s years of research into LDS financial dominance from 1830 to 2010."--Amazon.com

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Some of the thirty-plus polygamous marriages Joseph Smith engaged in before his death in 1844 shocked Matt's sensibilities, but nothing affected him like discovering Smith's last revelation. The church fathers told him the revelation was bogus. Matt knew different. People had a right to know. Matt learned the hard way: it was the sacred duty of the patriarchy to protect the membership from all things non-faith promoting. After a harrowing attempt on his life Matt was forced to disappear in order to write his book. When completed his publisher informed him that a Salt Lake City law firm, representing an undisclosed party, offered two million to buy his manuscript outright
