The Religious Studies Center at Brigham Young University has published "Global Mormonism in the 21st Century," a book compiled from 17 years of conferences on the globalization of Mormonism. The conferences have been sponsored by the International Society and have been held annually at BYU. Reid L. Neilson, editor of "Global Mormonism," has taken 20 presentations from the conferences and organized them into five themed sections. The result is an attempt to begin telling stories on the growth of the LDS Church outside of North America.

"The volume helps fill a gap in international church history, the result of a number of mistaken beliefs, such as international church history is too recent to chronicle, the hub of Mormon studies is northern Utah or international Church history lacks the interest of early American Mormonism, to name just a few," said Stephanie Wilson, production manager for the Religious Studies Center.

The volume is available at the BYU Bookstore. For more information, contact Stephanie Wilson at 801-422-3293.
