Discussion, Making Sense of Today’s Book of Mormon Debates

Book of Mormon studies have shifted in recent decades, leading to many new, and widely different theories about its historicity, origins, theology, and function. What are the new approaches? How and to what extent are they affecting official Church rhetoric as well as chapel discussions? What issues are crying for the most attention? What positive developments might follow from viewing the Book of Mormon in new ways? Panelists will discuss these questions, but leaving the bulk of the time for a full-group discussion. Bring your questions and ideas!
