The Christian Century on Mormonism

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 […]

One Last Scoping Ride Before LotoJa

I needed a ride today to clear my mind and also scope out the Lotoja route, so I headed down to Preston, Idaho, near the place of an altogether different massacre that unfolded back in the 1800’s (check out some of the description by Brigham D.

Friends, I couldn’t sleep last night. About 2:00 am, I got out of bed, thinking about Isaiah 29.

Baptist Blog Problems

But perhaps my LDS friends already knew Baptists had these kinds of problems, too.  Some need wisdom in what they air to the whole wide world. HT:  Joe Roof

Late summer angles on evangelical/mormon interaction

Nitsav over at Faith Promoting Rumor introduces Heiser in his discussion with LDS on the divine council of gods.  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 […]

As a pioneer, would you travel on the Sabbath?

My family is hanging out at a Best Western up here in Hermiston, Oregon. After making our way this morning across the Snake River Plain of Idaho, we spent a good part of our afternoon at National Historic Oregon Trail Interpretive Center on the outskirts of Baker City, Oregon. I have always gained much pleasure in tracking pioneer […]
