Marcus Borg argued, “believing something to be true has nothing to do with whether it is true.”
Duke Divinity School graduate and Baptist Pastor, Rev. Dr Fatimah Salleh and Exponent II Chief Editor, Margaret Olsen Hemming team up to give the Book of Mormon a Social Justice Reading. The Book of Mormon for the Least of These is the result.
Refreshingly, and without making any origin or belief claims, Fatimah and Margaret offer a new perspective on the Book of Mormon arguing that there are yet spiritually useful things to pay attention to that goes beyond our squabbling about whether or not the book is what the church says it is.
Salleh and Olsen Hemming offer a much-needed commentary on the Book of Mormon that promises to move it from where it has been too long marooned in the dead space of religious point-scoring.
