"This groundbreaking work features voices and perspectives that have been marginalized, silenced, and ignored for too long. It brings diverse scholars together in a powerful dialogue, one that seeks to change and connect human beings who have persevered in a world marred by processes of colonialism."
--Farina Noelani King, Northeastern State University
"Decolonizing Mormonism is a timely and necessary analysis of the moral priorities of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The urgency in these essays address issues of power associated with racism, colonization, heteropatriarchy, and capitalism. The collection is more than a dialogue among coreligionists, these conversations are essential in a time of growing global inequality."
--Hokulani Aikau, author of A Chosen People, A Promised Land: Mormonism and Race in Hawai'i
"This volume provides a needed expansion of the literature on Mormonism as it is lived, challenged, and struggled with in various contexts."
--Sociology of Religion
