Just the Facts

I found this article in Deseret News to be quite interesting. Apparently the LDS church has begun to ask members if they think they are getting a clear picture on LDS history. The answer is “no”. I’m encouraged that not only is the LDS church asking the question, but they’re willing to publish the results.

I’ve heard from second hand sources that when Richard Bushman published “Rough Stone Rolling” half the faculty at BYU was glad for it and the other half was upset by it. It seems that there is a movement within the church to stop sugar-coating the history of the church and to just play the facts straight.
