Greg Kofford Books is pleased to announce a new publication by Blake T. Ostler, author of the groundbreaking Exploring Mormon Thought series.

In Fire on the Horizon: A Meditation on the Endowment and Love of Atonement, Ostler explores and provides insights into two of the most central aspects of Mormon theology and practice: The Atonement and the temple endowment.  Utilizing observations from Soren Kierkegaard, Martin Buber, and others on what it means to be a being in relationship, Ostler offers further ruminations on what it means to become alienated from God and to once again have at-one-ment with Him.

Advance Praise for Blake Ostler’s Fire on the Horizon:

Fire on the Horizon distills decades of reading, argument, and reflection into one potent dose. Urgent, sharp, and intimate, it’s Ostler at his best.”—Adam S. Miller, author of Rube Goldberg Machines: Essays in Mormon Theology

“Blake Ostler has been one of the most stimulating, deep, and original thinkers in the Latter-day Saint community. This book continues and consolidates that status. His work demonstrates that Mormonism can, and indeed does, offer profound nourishment for reflective minds and soul-satisfying insights for thoughtful believers.”—Daniel C. Peterson, editor of Interpreter: A Journal of Mormon Scripture
