In a time when Mormons appear to have larger roles in everything
from political conflict to television shows and when Mormon-related
topics seem to show up more frequently in the news, eight scholars
take a close look at Mormonism in popular media: film, television,
theater, and books.
Some contributors examine specific works, including the
Tony-winning play Angels in America, the hit TV series
Big Love, and the bestselling books Under the Banner
of Heaven: A Story of Violent Faith and The Miracle Life
of Edgar Mint. Others consider the phenomena of Mormon cinema
and Mormon fiction; the use of the Mormon missionary as a stock
character in films; and the noticeably prominent presence of
Mormons in reality television shows.
