“A New Church History Seminary Manual” by Steven Densley at the FAIRMormon Blog discusses the new seminary manual just released by the Church. This sounds like a real breakthrough that will help young people better understand some of the difficult issues in Church history and be better prepared for the kind of challenges they are going to face on their missions or later in life. This is great news.
This comes on the tail of the Church’s statement which deals directly and intelligently with complex issues involving DNA and the Book of Mormon, providing valuable resources for those who care about the topic. I can’t help but wonder what interesting steps we’ll see next from a Church that clearly cares about some of the intellectual challenges its members have faced. Maybe a new priesthood and Relief Society manual extracted from The Mormon Interpreter? Now that would be fun.
