Boundary Lines: Mormonism with Dr. Richard Bushman

Dr. Richard Lyman Bushman visited Centenary's campus on 1-6 April 2008 hosted by the Attaway Fellows of Centenary, the Christian Leadership Center and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Dr. Bushman (PhD., Harvard University) is a practicing Mormon and American Historian. He is an accomplished author of twelve books including Joseph Smith: Rough Stone Rolling (2005) winner of the Evans Biography Award, and additionally he is the Governeur Morris Professor of History emeritus at Columbia University and most recently was appointed as Howard W. Hunter Visiting Professor of Mormon Studies at Claremont Graduate University.

He is considered to be "the single most widely known and highly regarded historian of Mormonism" according to Karen Torjesen of Claremont School of Religion...

And I had the opportunity not only to do an interview for Boundary Lines with Dr. Bushman , but to discuss issues of theology inside and outside of class with Dr. Bushman thanks to my professors.

I hope that the interview conducted for Boundary Lines will be educational and answer some questions that many of us have about Mormonism.

My Boundary Lines interview with Dr. Bushman will air Thursdays April 17 and 24 between 6-8pm on 91.3 FM.
