There has been considerable buzz in the blogosphere and elsewhere about a growing faith crisis among contemporary Mormons. This crisis of faith can be described as a state of intense emotional and spiritual distress resulting from the discovery of discrepancies between historical & scientific facts and the official LDS narrative. To what extent is the faith crisis real? What are its dimensions? What kinds of strategies should be considered to address it? What is the impact of electronic and social media on faith? This presentation is based on a survey of over 3,000 Latter-day Saints who have recently or are currently experiencing a faith crisis.
