Product Description

The distinguished career of Truman G. Madsen has earned him wide respect in and outside of LDS circles as an outstanding teacher, scholar, researcher, speaker, university administrator, church leader, and religious ambassador. With the publication of Revelation, Reason, and Faith: Essays in Honor of Truman G. Madsen, the Institute pays tribute to this remarkable man whose many accomplishments include helping to advance Book of Mormon scholarship and related interests of the Institute.

Edited by Donald W. Parry, Daniel C. Peterson, and Stephen D. Ricks (each of whom also author a chapter), the 800-plus-page volume contains contributions by 31 scholars, 10 of whom are not Latter-day Saints, reflecting the wide appeal of Madsen's academic work and influence.

The non-LDS contributors include the noted biblical scholars David Noel Freedman, James H. Charlesworth, and Jacob Milgrom.

The book is organized into five sections: “Philosophy and Theology," “LDS Scripture and Theology,” “Joseph Smith and LDS Church History,” “Judaism,” and “The Temple.”

Additional contributors are Davis Bitton, M. Gerald Bradford, S. Kent Brown, Richard L. Bushman, Joseph Dan, James E. Faulconer, Guttorm Fløistad, Rebecca L. Frey, Gary P. Gillum, Ann N. Madsen, Daniel B. McKinlay, Louis Midgley, Blake T. Ostler, David L. Paulsen, David Rosen, David R. Seely, Andrew C. Skinner, John A. Tvedtnes, Seth Ward, David J. Whittaker, and R. J. Zvi Werblowsky.
