To Be Learned Is Good: Essays on Faith and Scholarship in Honor of Richard Lyman Bushman
To Be Learned Is Good is a collection of essays given at a scholars' colloquium in June 2016 that explores the tensions between faith and scholarship. This colloquium was held in honor of Richard Lyman Bushman, Gouverneur Morris Professor of History emeritus at Columbia University, who has made significant contributions to Mormon history and scholarship. Among his many publications is the groundbreaking biography Joseph Smith: Rough Stone Rolling. According to the editors of To Be Learned Is Good, the essays in this volume feature "twin commitments to academic and religious worlds" and "reflect our vibrant and productive moment in LDS intellectual life that Richard himself helped to create and shape" (x).
