Publication Date July 24-26 and Oct 17
Summary This series of seven stories showed that the Mormon Church is not the fastest growing religion worldwide, as it claims. In fact, active church membership is about a third of what the official numbers are. Traditionally Mormon majority counties in Utah are losing their majority status. And stricter criteria for missionaries have reduced their numbers and converts worldwide.
