Evangelical v. Mormon

While Jon Keller is talking up John Dickerson’s very fine piece in Slate, the best thing I have read about Mitt Romney’s religious quandry was this story in The New Republic. Written by an academic specialist in religion, the article really gets at the heart of the origin of the divide between Mormons and other Christians. I’m not sure I ever understood how the theological distinctions between the faiths but this piece really helps explain them. As an aside, it also has the wonderful detail of a husband engaged in anti-Mormon proselytizing, whose wife is a practicing Mormon!
