Brief Theological Introductions: Book of Mormon Fireside

Thursday, July 13th 2023, 7:30pm
Online Event, 2400 Ridge Rd Berkeley, CA 94709

In 2020, the Maxwell Institute at Brigham Young University published a twelve-volume series of short books written by a diverse set of scholars taking a fresh look at our foundational text. On July 13, two of those authors, Dr. Sharon Harris and Dr. Kimberly Matheson, will participate in a panel discussion on their volumes (Enos/Jarom/Omni and Helaman, respectively), with a question and answer period to follow. The panel will be moderated by our own Dr. Deidre Green, also an author in the series (Jacob). Register here.
