Editorial Reviews


If one of the root meanings of the word religion is to reread, this much-anticipated first installment of the Mormon Theology Seminar is deeply religious work. These essays model a charitable attentiveness to the word that bears such unmistakably good fruit you will never read the scriptures again in the same way. Indeed, they remind us that we never should. --George Handley, Professor of Humanities, Brigham Young University

Here the Mormon Theology Seminar brings its experimental approach to bear on the experiment of faith itself. Overturning staid and stuffy notions of theology, the essays in this volume shed a prismatic light varied, brilliant, mobile on Alma s classic exploration of faith and knowledge, humility and hope, poverty and perfect love. Situating the discourse in the vexed social context of Zoramite religion, contributors draw out insights political, textual, philosophical, and deeply devotional. The seed is good; this is a book worth planting. --Rosalynde Welch --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
