Mormonism and the Emotions

Author: Mauro Properzi (Peterhouse 2003)

Publisher: Fairleigh Dickinson University Press

Winner of CHOICE Outstanding Academic Title award this book positions factors and outcomes in the constructs of emotion within a particular faith culture, involving conflicting and complementary dualities within Mormon views of authority, cognition, and responsibility. The book comprises two parts: the first lays out a rationale for emotion generally and in LDS context for scripture and modern revelation, especially between parallel churchly and secular authorities; the second examines three dualities (hope/fear, joy/sorrow, love/hate) in some detail, with an identical scaffold for each.
