This episode explores the beliefs and practices of a church with over 14 million members. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (The Mormons) is, according to the National Council of Churches, the fourth largest Christian denomination in the United States.
It also finds itself constantly in the headlines over things like secret handshakes, magic underwear (temple garments), polygamy, racism, child abuse, a billion-dollar tax-free bank account and a planet called Kolob.
Our special guest is David Fitzgerald, author of the new book in the series, The Complete Heretic's Guide to Western Religion, "The Mormons."
