Awesome info regarding many questions about Mormonism

When I was alerted to the fact that there were new and cool articles at lds.org about polygamy, I was sad that there wasn’t a list so one could easily find out when neat new content had been added.

As a result of the media furor over the supposedly shocking Church admission that Joseph married many women, the Church published a response to provide context. This includes a list of the scholarly articles, along with the dates they were published (making my heart happy).

A complete list of the in-depth essays is listed below:

Are Mormons Christian? November 20, 2013
First Vision Accounts November 20, 2013
Race and the Priesthood December 6, 2013
Plural Marriage and Families in Early Utah December 16, 2013
Book of Mormon Translation December 30, 2013
Book of Mormon and DNA Studies January 31, 2014
Becoming Like God February 24, 2014
Peace and Violence among 19th-Century Latter-day Saints May 13, 2014
Translation and Historicity of the Book of Abraham July 8, 2014
Plural Marriage in Kirtland and Nauvoo October 22, 2014
The Manifesto and the End of Plural Marriage October 22, 2014

If you’ve got some free moments, I highly recommend reading through these.

  1. Hi Anon,

    Of course I will wait for the next one. ??? The internet doesn’t let me determine with certainty, but I suspect if I were to have heard you voice your words, I might have detected a trace of snark.

  2. Then you would have heard incorrectly. The next essay released will truly be the best yet. That is all I’m able to say about it.

  3. I’m happy for your excitement about the upcoming article.

    In what way might we expect to learn of the publication of this article? I’d rather not have it be by reading about it on the cover of the New York Times, nor merely because of my position as a female blogger here at Millennial Star.
