A new book is out, anthologizing essays by the Latter-day Saint Russian scholar and playwright Thomas F. Rogers.

 

Tom has been a friend of mine since I was a student and he was the director of BYU’s Honors Program.  My wife, while an undergraduate, directed his stage adaptation of Flannery O’Connor’s A Good Man is Hard to Find.  For years now, too, we’ve belonged to a monthly reading group of which he and his wife are also members.  (We were together with them on Sunday night; he gave us a copy of this new book.)

 

So it’s a personal pleasure to share Stephen Smoot’s review of Tom’s Let Your Hearts and Minds Expand: Reflections on Faith, Reason, Charity, and Beauty:
