Patrick Mason’s new book “Planted: Belief and Belonging in an Age of Doubt” brings both thoughtfulness and compassion to the crisis of faith currently experienced by many in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Drawing on his academic training his work offers an honest and a rigorous treatment of the cultural and spiritual landscape inhabited by many Mormons, along with fresh ways of understanding and responding to this moment.
In this co-hosted episode with Dan Wotherspoon, including Boyd Peterson we tackle some of the hard questions that Patrick’s book arouses. What is a prophet? What does it mean to sustain a leader or to forgive a leader? What would Jesus have done in our circumstances? Where do women fit into this model? And much, much more!
