Expressions of Faith: Testimonies of Latter-day Saint Scholars

Reviewer Patricia Mann Alto

Can a true Saint balance the quest for earthly knowledge on the head of a spiritual pin, allowing her or him to dance with the angels? Or put another way, can anyone thoroughly acquainted with the learning of the world (done by "the natural man") remain humble enough to be considered a person of faith?

After reading this volume of essays penned by twenty-four esteemed Latter-day Saint scholars from diverse academic interests and institutions, one comes away judging that the answers to both these questions is a resounding "yes." What is more, one understands how correct Noel Reynolds is when he writes in the preface that Mormons, who are constantly in search of both intellectual and spiritual answers to the great questions of life, can find strength and common ground by sharing testimonies concerning the fruits of these searches.
