62 ARRINGTON, LEONARD J.; NEILSON, REID L. & WALKER, RONALD W. Reflections Of A Mormon Historian: Leonard J. Arrington On The New Mormon History.
University of Oklahoma Press, Norman: 2006. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
Conflict between matters of faith and historical truth has been a conundrum at the heart of doing and telling the history of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (also known as the Mormon Church). Some of the best essays on that topic were written by Leonard J. Arrington, perhaps the best-known member of the group of professionals who founded the New Mormon History of the late twentieth century. Now, Arrington's essay on history and the Mormons are collected in a single source work. Arrington rose to prominence during the so-called "flowering of Mormon history." In a precedent-breaking move, he was made Church Historian in January 1972, the first professional historian to serve in the position. His ideas, as expressed in the essays collected here, helped to determine how Mormon history was written during the last part of the twentieth century. Arrington sought a middle way between the extremes of defending or attacking faith claims—two forces that drove most nineteenth-century and even much twentieth-century writing on the Mormons. He not only adopted a neutral stance in his writing as LDS Historian, his name became connected inseparably with the New Mormon History because of his personality and the quality of his work. The fourteen essays offered here are autobiographical, reflective, analytical, personal, and prophetic. Together, they constitute an illuminating study of the challenges faced by all who study history and face the conflicts its telling involves. Supplementing the essays are a biographical sketch by historian Ronald W. Walker, a chronology of Arrington's life, and a detailed bibliography of his published works and speeches, prepared by David J. Whitaker. A personal tribute to Arrington is given by his daughter, historian Susan Arrington Madsen. The book has a bibliography and index. It is bound in rust linen cloth, has a foil stamped spine and a full-color dust jacket.

78 BARRETT-FOX, REBECCA. God Hates: Westboro Baptist Church, American Nationalism, And The Religious Right.
University Press of Kansas, Lawrence: 2016. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
The congregants thanked God that they weren't like all those hopeless people outside the church, bound for hell. So the Westboro Baptist Church's Sunday service began, and Rebecca Barrett-Fox, a curious observer, wondered why anyone would seek spiritual sustenance through other people's damnation. It is a question that piques many a witness to Westboro's more visible activity—the "GOD HATES FAGS" picketing of funerals. In God Hates, sociologist Barrett-Fox takes us behind the scenes of Topeka's Westboro Baptist Church. The first full ethnography of this infamous presence on America's Religious Right, her book situates the church's story in the context of American religious history—and reveals as much about the uneasy state of Christian practice in our day as it does about the workings of the Westboro Church and Fred Phelps, its founder. God Hates traces WBC's theological beliefs to a brand of hyper-Calvinist thought reaching back to the Puritans—an extreme Calvinism, emphasizing predestination, that has proven as off-putting as Westboro's actions, even for other Baptists. And yet, in examining Westboro's role in conservative politics and its contentious relationship with other fundamentalist activist groups, Barrett-Fox reveals how the church's message of national doom in fact reflects beliefs at the core of much of the Religious Right's rhetoric. Westboro's aggressively offensive public activities actually serve to soften the anti-gay theology of more mainstream conservative religious activism. With an eye to the church's protest at military funerals, she also considers why the public has responded so differently to these than to Westboro's anti-LGBT picketing. With its history of Westboro Baptist Church and its founder, and its profiles of defectors, this book offers a complex, close-up view of a phenomenon on the fringes of American Christianity—and a broader, disturbing view of the mainstream theology it at once masks and reflects. Rebecca Barrett-Fox is visiting assistant professor of sociology at Arkansas State University, Jonesboro. "If one desires a look inside the Westboro Baptist Church compound to learn how the WBC members explain their behavior and belief system, how they profess to love and care for each other, God Hates is a necessary book."—Kansas History "This important book challenges readers to reflect on America's long history of homophobic religious discourse. It marks a significant and timely mediation on the relationship between religion, sexuality, and civic discourse in a post-Obergefell United States."—Journal of Church and State
