2008: Confronting the Sacred Texts of Mormonism: Exegetical Challenges & Strategies / James Faulconer

I have this information about an exciting Presentation by BYU Professor James Falconer at Claremont Graduate School on May 5, 2008 at 4PM in the afternoon. When we were setting up the visit at Biola University of an LDS Presenter a few years ago, Robert Millet strongly suggested inviting James Faulconer, and there is a post on my blog giving his description of the LDS concept of grace at this link.

Thanks much,

Steve St.Clair
