This year’s Pillars of My Faith session featured historian Don Bradley and theologian Maxine Hanks who talked about their journeys out of and then back into the LDS Church.
Don Bradley is a writer, editor, and researcher specializing in Mormon origins and an MA candidate in history at Utah State University. He is also the author of The Lost 116 Pages: Rediscovering the Book of Lehi, forthcoming from Greg Kofford Books.
Maxine Hanks is a feminist theologian and lecturer, researching gender in religion, particularly Christian and Mormon theology. Her call to ministry has taken her from serving an LDS mission to serving as an interfaith chaplain at Holy Cross Chapel, to rejoining the LDS Church in 2012.
