Ridgewood pair's book explores Mormonism

Summarized by Janus Wilkinson

Ridgewood pair's book explores Mormonism
Bergen co NJ Record 30Sep99 A2
By Abigail K. Leichman: Staff Writer

This is a rather lengthy article that looks at the new book, "Mormon America: The Power and the Promise" written by non-Mormons Richard and Joan Ostling. The book, which will be on shelves on October 20, purports to be an exhaustive and comprehensive look at the "Mormon" religion.

Richard Ostling spent 30 years with Time Magazine and wrote a cover story on the Mormons in August of 1997 entitled "Mormons, Inc." That issue sold second only to the issues with Princess Diana on the cover.
