Description

"Some left. Some stayed. Each one found some aspect of their church's history, doctrine, policies, or politics that they could not reconcile with their own personal ethics. Some felt burdened by the conflict, while others embraced it. A few were reticent, even apologetic about their disagreements. Others were barnstormers. Each possessed some quality that destined him or her to ride at the fringes rather than at the center.

"Mormon Mavericks summarizes some famous flashpoints in Mormon history; more importantly, it provides a fascinating study in human nature. Each contributor is a recognized expert in his or her field, and all approach their topic with sympathy and objectivity." (From back cover.)
