Make sure you check out September’s Christianity Today and the article, “Latter-Day Politics”.
For some reason, I missed these articles in The Christian Century (August 21, 2007) on Mormonism. Again, I am behind the times. I am sure that most of you have already read “A Mormon president? The LDS difference” by Laurie F. Maffly-Kipp. But it is the second article in the magazine, “Counting Mormons: Study says […]
According to today’s Post Register, the temple will be finished on December 29.

Sometime in the future, I would like to interact with the material within the latest FARMS volume. In another sphere, evidently, Bill and Eric over at Mormon Research Ministries are breaking rules again over what is proper […]
