A Dream, a Rock, and a Pillar of Fire

A Dream, a Rock, and a Pillar of Fire

Reading 1 Nephi 1

December | 2017


In these conference proceedings stands the hope of a new kind of Mormon theology, one that brings women and men, academics and independents, philosophers and students of literature into the conversation about the meanings of faith and scripture. These essays are united by their firm commitment to the power of scripture and the possibility that holy writ may be rather more than it first appears. Mormon theologians and literary theorists should welcome the voices contained in this volume into discussions about the complex relationships created between readers and the sacred penmen, between the living and the dead.

Samuel M. Brown, author of In Heaven as It Is on Earth: Joseph Smith and the Early Mormon Conquest of Death


"Always a pleasure to read, [Mormon Theology Seminar] papers require effort and the patience to ponder the insights presented. The reward is always worth the effort expended."

—Robert Wheadon, LDS Apologist Now, January 9, 2018
