oversized, unique portrait of the Mormons at work, worship, and play includes essays by the church's fifteenth prophet, President Gordon B. Hinckley, and others. 100,000 first printing.

The Mission is an extraordinary look by a team of international photojournalists at the customs, culture and spirit of the people of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, commonly known as the Mormons. Over the course of a year, fifty of the world's most talented photographers journeyed to six continents and were given unprecedented access to Church members. They accompanied them on their missions; slept in their homes; and attended their baptisms, weddings, summer camps, church services, and funerals. They shared family home evenings, parades, and festivals. They laughed with them, and sometimes cried with them. The result is a collection of many never-before-seen photographs that create a riveting and entirely human portrait of the Church through the lives of its faithful.
