Scholar reflects on 40 years studying LDS
Deseret News 19Mar00 N6
By Carrie A. Moore: Deseret News religion editor

PROVO, UTAH -- Religious historian Jan Shipps is in Utah this week to promote her newest book, "Sojourner in the Promised Land: Forty Years Among the Mormons".

For more than 40 years, Shipps has been a religious scholar, focusing on the LDS Church. As a non-member, her writings have helped explain the LDS beliefs to both members and non-members.

In her book she looks at the last 40 years of the LDS Church and finds that it "has moved from being embedded in a particular culture to one that can make itself at home in any culture."
