I would like to call your attention to a few things from the Interpreter Foundation


Science & Mormonism Series 1: Cosmos, Earth, and Man: Answering New Atheism and Seeking a Sure Knowledge of God

Part of our book chapter reprint series, this article by Amy L. Williams originally appeared in Science & Mormonism Series 1: Cosmos, Earth, and Man (2016).

Abstract: This article describes and counters the arguments of the “New Atheism,” a loose movement that some have characterized as espousing the belief that religion should be actively countered, criticized, and exposed by rational argument. It also describes the role of faith and verifiability in scientific inquiry and in Latter-day Saint theology.




Dr. Hales Swift continues, very generously, to furnish video commentaries on the Gospel Doctrine readings for the Church adult curriculum:


Redeeming the Dead in 1 Peter 3:17-20 and 4:6: A Video Supplement for Come, Follow Me Lesson 46: “Rejoice with Joy Unspeakable and Full of Glory”




The participants in the 24 November 2019 episode of the Interpreter Radio Show were Martin Tanner, Craig Foster, and Matthew Bowen, and their discussion centered around Thanksgiving.  In the second hour, they reconvened for a roundtable on the upcoming Come, Follow Me lesson #48 on Christmas.  The whole program, shorn of commercial and other interruptions, is now available online at no charge, at this link:

Of course, if your principal interest for the moment is the scriptural roundtable, it was extracted for your convenience from the 24 November 2019 episode as a stand-alone items, featuring Martin Tanner, Craig Foster and, Matthew Bowen.  It is available at no charge and with no commerial or other breaks at the following link:
