Although the LDS Church cooperated in the production of the book, particularly by setting aside BYU resources, the Encyclopedia was meant to be independent and unofficial in the church.

Encyclopedia of Mormonism.

Encyclopedia of Mormonism. The Encyclopedia of Mormonism includes lengthy articles on core LDS subjects like LDS Church history and doctrine, but the work also includes many topics that are only generally related to Mormonism. For example, articles on Constitutional law, Sports, Science, and Freedom discuss LDS perspectives and contributions to various fields. Ludlow highlights this in his concluding preface remarks

The Encyclopedia of Mormonism is a semi-official encyclopedia for topics relevant to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

It is an excellent reference. I know I will be using it frequently when I have questions I am needing answers to.

Jelar
Awesome reference for almost any subject you can imagine

They were just what I expected. It is great to have the 'hard copy' available at all times when the computer may not work.

Orevise
Classic set.

The Encyclopedia of Mormonism is a wonderful and scholary work for anyone wanting to know more about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The articles covers a wide range of topics, from abortion, to the endowment, Council of Fifty, Zion, etc. Well researched and (mostly) written by Latter-day Saint scholars, a must for serious scholarship on Latter-day Saints.
Its closes rival is Elder Bruce R. McConkie's "Mormon Doctrine," and there are some important differences. First, Mormon Doctrine is a normative, theological work, while the Encyclopedia of Mormonism is a scholarly, and at times historical. Although not an "official" LDS publication, Mormon Doctrine is the work of one LDS apostle, while the Encyclopedia of Mormonism is a compilation of several hundred LDS scholars, and as such the quality of the articles varies according to the expertise of author, a normal hazard with any encyclopedic work.
The Encyclopedia of Mormonismsm is an important first step. Hopefully in time, we can get a six, or seven volume version, due to the fascinating nature of the subject matter.

A well-researched, fully documented and authoritative exploration into the doctrines and practices of the LDS (Mormon) church. Most articles are accompanied by b/w photos and charts. This volume replaces any other work you might have on Mormonism.
A searchable CD-ROM of the encyclopedia is also available -- e-mail me for more information on this.

This is certainly a valuable resource for anyone seeking to understand Mormonism from the official viewpoint. The articles are certainly well written, and I'm certain that it has found a welcome place in many libraries and the homes of Latter-Day Saints. Not all the articles are by LDS writers. An article on the RLDS church has been written by RLDS historian Richard P. Howard. That in itself is a welcome sign of progress having been made in LDS and RLDS (now known as the Community of Christ) relations.

However, this does not mean that it is wholly unbiased or objective. There are flaws in several articles. Two of the most glaring involve the 1826 trial of Joseph Smith (which the authors still believe Smith was found innocent of), and ignores recent discoveries by the Rev. Wesley P. Walters. In 1971 and 1975, Walter unearthed documents which prove that Smith was indeed found guilty of being a disorderly person. The documentary history would seem to support such a charge and to gloss over it as if it did not happen is unfair.

Also, we see that the Mormon church has not yet come to terms with the Book of Abraham. The discovery of the papyri used in the Book of Abraham translation, as well as Joseph Smith's Egyptian Alphabet and Grammar, were certainly great historical finds. However, these are glossed over and the authors do not deal with the fact that these papyri have been shown to have nothing whatsoever to do with Abraham, but are actually from the Egyptian Book of the Dead.

This is an excellent resource in many ways. However, the reader should be aware that not all the articles are posessed of scholarly objectivity.
