My FairMormon presentation reiterated parts of two previous papers I have presented. That text should be online soon (as I understand.) Below I offer the very rough presentation text from the two previous papers.

The society for Mormon Philosophy and Theology paper, with lots of my raw material. LINK.

My MSH paper,”Science, Scripture, And Secularism: Rethinking some Inherited Assumptions.” LINK

Below are some books I would recommend. (These are, of course, not LDS, not approved by the Church, I have some disagreements, etc., but generally still good to read.)

In general, for presuppositions, see Misreading Scripture with Western Eyes

The intellectual history of creationism, evolution, and the “modern synthesis”

Cosmology in the Hebrew Bible

On Genesis

See my post here.

For wrestling with the nature of scripture and the OT, I highly recommend 

For Bibles and Study Bibles, see

  • The “recommendations for personal study” section of my article here
  • My post here (Old Testament specific)
  • My post here (New Testament specific)

I was asked about a book in the Q&A, Friedman’s Who Wrote the Bible, which I recommend along with his The Bible with Sources Revealed. In that connection, I mentioned David Bokovoy’s book, Authoring the Old Testament, from Kofford Press.

As always, you can help me pay my tuition here, or you can support my work through making your regular Amazon purchases through this Amazon link. You can also get updates by email whenever a post goes up (subscription box on the right). If you friend me on Facebook, please drop me a note telling me you’re a reader. I tend not to accept friend requests from people I’m not acquainted with.
