"This is not a book of LDS theology, " Hinckley said Friday at a news conference in Salt Lake City. "It is about values and standards. "

...Random House liked the idea of a book by Hinckley in the tradition of former U.S. Education Secretary William Bennett's The Book of Virtues. Hinckley also follows the lead of Pope John Paul II and the Dalai Lama, who have written books for a broad audience...

If growth during the next century is like the past, the Mormons will become a major world faith. If, for example, we assume they will grow by 30 percent decade, then in 2080 there will be more than 60 million Mormons. But, since World War II, the Mormon growth rate has been far higher than 30% per decade. If we set the rate at 60%, then in 2080, there will be 265 million Mormons. Admittedly, straight line projections are risky: they assume the future will be like the past. there is no way to be sure that Mormon growth won't suddenly begin to decline. But it would be wise to keep in mind that back in 1880, scholars would have ridiculed anyone who used a straight-line projection to predict that the 160,000 Mormons of that year would number more than 5 million a century hence. But that is now history. "
