Format: Paperback
James Faulconer has been writing about Mormonism and philosophy for a long time. This volume collects his essays on the subject, originally published in a variety of places (and of them entirely unavailable in publication before this volume). The essays have, moreover, been updated and revised. The result is a collection of profound reflections on various aspects of the Mormon religious experience, all presented in light of the best on offer in philosophy.

Faulconer has led the way in using specifically continental European thought to make sense of Mormonism---and especially of Mormon scripture. In essays like "Scripture as Incarnation" and "Rethinking Theology," he makes especially clear why careful work in contemporary philosophy can be of use in developing a clear understanding of Mormonism's stakes. In "Rethinking Theology" and "Why a Mormon Won't Drink Coffee but Might Have a Coke," he also articulates carefully the dangers of philosophy for understanding what's at stake in Mormonism. The volume also contains a number of important essays on scripture, most richly his essay "Breathing."

This volume does not disappoint.

By Jenny Webb on March 22, 2015
Format: Paperback
Collections of essays written at different times for different audiences can be somewhat difficult, something Faulconer appears to acknowledge in his introduction when he tells his readers to "skim those which they find ... irrelevant to their interests." And yet, it is honestly difficult to imagine anyone interested in the intersections between faith, philosophy, and scripture to find much material here that they would wish to skim.

Faulconer writes with thoughtful precision that bears up under multiple readings. And Mormonism, as well as a spiritual life more generally, greatly benefits from his efforts. The care and seriousness with which he treats his topics demonstrate a profound respect for the word of God as well as a genuine desire to seek for greater understanding. This is a volume I continue to return to time and again, and each time I am glad I did.

Brother Faulconer has been the leading voice in thoughtful reflections on Mormonism for many years now. This collection of essays represents the best thinking and writing on Mormonism that he--or anyone else!--has produced.

If you are Mormon, or otherwise interested in Mormonism, and you are interested in thoughtful reflections on what it means to live the Gospel as a Mormon, this is the best book on the topic bar none.
