The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is one of America's fastest growing religions, and its influence circles the globe. Yet the birth of Mormonism and its history is one of America's great neglected narratives. This four-hour documentary brings together FRONTLINE and AMERICAN EXPERIENCE in their first co-production to provide a searching portrait of this fascinating but often misunderstood religion.

PBS made a thoroughly informative documentary about the Latter Day Saints church from its birth to the present. The documentary includes interviews from former members as well as present members. It covers the topics of homosexuality, black men in the priesthood, modern day Mormon missionaries, as well as interviews with those who serve in the leadership of the church. The documentary is fairly non-biased and doesn't portray Mormons in a negative light. PBS doesn't hold back on discussing the darker times of the church's history though.

Sadly, it was the best ever

By JarJar

Comments about PBS The Mormons DVD:

As a member of the Church, it was frustrating to see half the show devoted to those who have spent their lives fighting against it. They were way too careful not to show the real positive aspects of the Church. The Mount-Meadow Massacre segment received too much time (1/4) for the tragic out-of-place side note that it is and leaves you thinking that Brigham Young gave the order...for which there is no reason to believe whatsoever. John D. Lee ("high ranking authority", actually about 85th from the top and acting rogue) acted on his own against the local counsel, much less Church headquarters.

Best of the genre re Mormonism.

By Firkey

from Sun Valley, ID

Verified Buyer

Comments about PBS The Mormons DVD:

Insightful and carefully crafted. But too little insight into why their prosletyzing world-wide is so successful. Fairly well-balanced. Too little emphasis on limited roles of women. Very limited exposure re radical beliefs. Always felt like every segment included was pre approved for inclusion and content by the Council of Twelve Apostles.

Comments about PBS The Mormons DVD:

I learned more about the mormans that I have heard from other people by word of mouth. This gives you an honest and adequate understanding about the Mormon religion!

Good for a church library

Comments about PBS The Mormons DVD:

Beautifully done and objective showing of Mormon history and doctrine, this documentary is fair enough and tough enough to be in our Baptist church library.
