Summary
Inspired by the groundbreaking publication of How Wide the Divide?: a Mormon and an Evangelical in Conversation (InterVarsity, 1997), Robert L. Millet, a life long Mormon, former Dean of Religious Education, and currently a professor of religious education at Brigham Young University and Gregory C.V. Johnson, an ordained Baptist pastor from Utah and a former Mormon, meet and begin their own conversation. Eventually they take their dialogues public, appearing in various LDS, Evangelical, and academic venues. The first part of this book is a dialogue between the two authors themselves. The second part is a Q & A with Mormon and Evangelical audiences. Throughout this work the authors provide guiding principles of constructive conversation and promote the concept of "convicted civility." --P. [4] of cover
