The case is receiving a lot of attention from the press covering the Internet. The Tanners have appealed a ruling by U.S. District Judge Tena Campbell to the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver, which would resolve the issue for much of the Intermountain West.

"Mormon America: The Power and the Promise" by Richard N. Ostling and Joan K. Ostling is certainly the most reviewed book at the moment on Mormonism.

And New York Times reporter Timothy Egan, who reviewed the book for the Times, calls the book, "a long overdue primer on one of the fastest growing religions in the world."
