SALT LAKE TRIBUNE has article on recently-released book MORMONISM FOR DUMMIES by LDS authors Jana Riess and Christopher Bigelow: "Probably the trickiest part to write was the section on race, Bigelow said. 'We didn't want to call the church to repentance, but we wanted to acknowledge that many Mormons still don't think we've fully come to terms with our past racism.' Given that Mormons don't talk about temple rituals to outsiders, the chapter on temples was 'quite sensitive to write,' he said. 'During revision, we pulled back on several details about logistics inside the temple.'" (1)
