Mormon Stories - LDS

As John Dehlin faces a disciplinary council for his work on Mormon Stories, more than two dozen past participants offer their thoughts on what John and the podcast have meant to them and to Mormonism. These reflections include faithful, orthodox Latter-Day Saints and ex-Mormons; famous scholars and private individuals; and social activists and theologians. They reflect the inclusiveness of the Mormon Stories project, past, present, and future --- and the many ways lives have been changed and improved by involvement with John's work. We invite listeners to share their own reflections about the importance of Mormon Stories in the comments section to this post.
