Common Ground, Different Opinions---Now Available! October 15 2013

Greg Kofford Books announces the release on October 15, 2013 of a new volume of essays, Common Ground--Different Opinions: Latter-day Saint and Contemporary Issues. Contributors include former U.S. Senator Robert Bennett, Robert L. Millet, James Faulconer, Taylor Petrey, Margaret Young, and Kristine Haglund.

There are a number of controversial topics that faithful Latter-day Saints can engage from a variety of perspectives, drawing a wide range of moral, ethical, and policy conclusions. These difficult issues--from evolution to environmentalism, war and peace to political partisanship, stem cell research to same-sex marriage--can affect how we interact as Latter-day Saints, even on the common ground of our shared religious commitments. 

In this volume various Latter-day Saint authors address these and other issues from variable points of view. Though they differ on these tough questions, they have all found common ground in the gospel of Jesus Christ and the latter-day restoration. Their insights offer diverse approaches to tough questions while demonstrating the value in loving, respecting, and listening to those with whom we disagree.
