Temple Studies Video Discussions


The Houston Texas Temple


TempleStudy.com, led by Bryce M. Haymond (a member of the editorial board of Interpreter: A Journal of Mormon Scripture), is hosting a series of fireside-style video discussions on the topic of the temple.


These discussions are being facilitated by the new Google+ Hangouts on Air, which allows a live panel discussion with up to ten contributors to gather virtually, via webcams, and permits discussants to broadcast their conversation online.


The text serving as the springboard for the discussions is Andrew C. Skinner’s book Temple Worship: 20 Truths That Will Bless Your Life, published by Deseret Book in 2007.


Panelists have included William J. Hamblin (another member of the Interpreter editorial board), Frederick M. Huchel, Gary N. Anderson, and others.


Two discussions have already taken place, with more forthcoming.  Here are links to the two prior discussions:








Gay "marriage," the end of the First Amendment, and the centralization of State power?
Joseph Smith, trying to teach
A bit of scientific background for understanding the Freddie Gray case in Baltimore
The Joseph Smith Sr. family in Palmyra
