2008 Annual Meeting of Society for Mormon Philosophy and Theology March 27-29, 2008 / SMPT Website

I am posting the call for papers, which was issued earlier this year, for the annual meeting of the Society for Mormon Philosophy and Theology’s 2008 meeting to be held on March 27-29, 2008 at the University of Utah, as a way of publicizing this important event. My personal sense is that the combination of thinkers participating in this organization may well help form the consensus of how Latter-day Saints of our day will move into a closer relationship with other Christians while preserving the distinctives that make it interesting and true.
As the information on the actual hours and locations of the meetings become available, I will add them here.
Love & Thanks,
Steve St.Clair
