From Library Journal:

Books about Mormons tend to be either hostile or cloying--few are dispassionate. Coates, an investigative reporter for The Chicago Tribune , is clearly seeking his scoop, but his tone betrays a hostility that suggests a hidden agenda. Unfortunately, he does not spell out his biases (which, after all, may be legitimate) as he tells the history of the Mormon church and assesses its current situation. In fact, while at times it appears that he wants the reader to be surprised by what he has found, mostly what he has found is common knowledge. Libraries will still find Robert Gottleib and Peter Wiley's America's Saints (HBJ, 1986) to be the definitive (and more interesting) account of the contemporary Mormon world.

From Publishers Weekly:

Coates, an admirer of Mormonism, presents an absorbing report on controversy within the Latter-Day Saints' community and the history and tenets of America's fastest-growing religion.
