    This episode features three scholars discussing the relevance of scripture. Last Wednesday, Zion’s Books in Provo, Utah hosted a roundtable discussion on the subject featuring Joseph Spencer (author of For Zion: A Theology of Hope as well as An Other Testament, new edition forthcoming from the Maxwell Institute), David Bokovoy (Authoring the Old Testament), and Adam Miller, who read a chapter from his recent release, Letters to a Young Mormon. Janiece Johnson of BYU-Idaho moderated the panel. A question and answer period followed, but this podcast episode contains only the papers themselves as follows:
    • Joseph Spencer: “Scripture and the Structure of Religious Life”
    • David Bokovoy: “‘I Will Tell You in Your Mind and in Your Heart’: Reading the Bible Critically as a Believing Latter-day Saint”
    • Adam Miller: “Reading Scripture: Continuing the Work of Translation”
