Have you browsed his latest book, The Evolution of God (Little, Brown and Company, 2009) and noticed what he said about Mormonism?
“It may sound cynical to explain the growth of a religion, especially a religion of love, in crass commercial terms, as though religions were mere networking services. But such practical functions play some role in the power of religion even today. The Mormon church, whose growth role has been compared to that of early Christianity, is a smooth conduit of commercial contact.”
(1) Wright uses Stark, who is over the top, for LDS growth role comparison to the early Christianity. (2) Do many other religious scholars think that Mormonism is a commercial networking service? (3) Do you agree with Wright’s beliefs about the evolution of God(s)?
