The newest entry on Mormon Scholars Testify is that of Robb Cundick (Dr. Robert Cundick, Jr.), who does medical software development at the University of Utah School of Medicine. It’s a very well-written and thoughtful piece.
Mormon Scholars Testify is approaching 350 entries. If they were printed, they would fill several volumes. I’m very grateful to all of those who have submitted their testimonies, and I encourage others who might fit the rough “qualifications” for the site to do so. There’s plenty of room for more,
Incidentally, some of my critics — they’re always seeking new evidence of my corrupt character — have accused me of elitism. Would Peterson, they wonder out loud, favor a “Mormon Farmers Testify” site? A “Mormon Housewives Testify” or a “Mormon Businessmen Testify”? The answer is Yes, I would. Absolutely. And I hope that others will launch such sites. This just happens to be my niche, and the way that I’ve been trying to comply with Elder Ballard’s invitation for us to use the Internet to share our testimonies. I only have so many hours in a day, and, while I happen to know lots of academics, I know relatively few farmers. As a matter of fact, I’ve tried to help others who have attempted to establish “Mormon Coaches and Athletes Testify” and “Mormon Doctors Testify” projects. Those efforts have languished for various reasons, so far as I’m aware. And I simply don’t have the time to do them myself. But I would be delighted if others got them up to full steam.
