Talking Ether online tonight with Rosalynde Welch

In this week’s Book of Mormon Conversation, scholar Rosalynde Welch talks about her brief theological introduction to the book of Ether with Michael Stanley, a board member of the John A. Widtsoe Foundation.

According to Welch, Moroni’s work as translator-prophet brilliantly reframes the nature of scripture itself. Like the brother of Jared’s luminous stones, Moroni’s offering glows with his powerful testimony of Christ. In faith, his record extends the promise of Christ’s saving power to people in every place and time.

We encourage attendees to respectfully participate in the discussion chat, submit questions, and enjoy a dynamic conversation about Book of Mormon principles and how they inspire us to develop and improve our lives and communities.
