2013 Church Almanac (Paperback)
by Deseret News
Quietly, almost imperceptibly, The Church of Jesus Christ continues to grow, marked in the last year by the announcement of five new temples, including two in developing Africa. While much of this growth goes unnoticed by the major media, to members of the Church, the spread of faith is the most important news in the world. The Deseret News 2013 Church Almanac is the most complete record of this stone that was cut out without hands and is filling the whole earth.
There is sense among many Church members that historians of the future will look back on 2012, not as the eclipse of a “Mormon Moment” but as the beginning of the real emergence as American Mormons, with all of their distinctiveness, into the rich mosaic of American religious life.
Changes in Church leadership, the organization of the Church by areas of the world, history of the Church by state in the U.S. and by countries across the globe are all recorded in the over 600 pages of the 2013 Church Almanac.
