Mormons and the Media, 1898–2003: A Selected, Annotated, and Indexed Bibliography (with Suggestions for Future Research)
Print, electronic, and other forms of communications media have been consistently perceived and characterized by leaders of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints as tools to assist in spreading the gospel message throughout the world. President Spencer W. Kimball said, "Technology will help spread the gospel. . . . We shall use the inventions the Lord has given us to awaken interest and acquaint people of the world with [gospel] truths." More recently, President Gordon B. Hinckley said, "The Lord has inspired skilled men and women in developing new technologies which we can use to our great advantage in moving forward this sac red work."
