Church History and the World | The Book of Commandments
Time & Location
About the Event
Join The John A. Widtsoe Foundation in an interactive virtual conversation and Q&A series discussing key components of Church History. This series is hosted by Richard E. Turley Jr., Widtsoe Foundation Board Member and former Managing Director of the Church History Department, and is joined by esteemed historians and other experts to discuss insights into each topic, and their impact on members of the Church across the globe. The topics coincide with the Come Follow Me curriculum, and our hope is that these conversations enhance your Come Follow Me study and help Church members around the world understand how Church history connects with them, and how it connects them together more deeply.
In this month’s conversation, we're pleased to be joined by Robin Jensen, Church Historian and co-author of the Joseph Smith Papers. The pair will be discussing the Book of Commandments, and the global implications of the revelations that became part of the Doctrine and Covenants. This conversation will follow the same format as our previous events (see our YouTube Channel), beginning with our conversation partners discussing the topic, and then opening the floor for audience questions and comments. We encourage attendees to respectfully participate in the discussion chat, submit questions, and enjoy a dynamic conversation about the history of The Book of Commandments.
