Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0941214699, Paperback)

Line Upon Line brings together in one book some of the most thoughtful and compelling essays on Mormon doctrine and theology that have appeared in print. The contributors offer reflective, historical discussions of development of Mormon doctrine from the statements of church leaders, the writings of LDS theologians, and canonized scripture. These essays are the results of careful study by trained historians and skilled researchers who hope to foster greater thought and attention to the evolution of ideas which are often taken for granted. Noting the relative strengths and weaknesses of various theological or doctrinal teachings, they suggest that differences of opinion can indicate the presence fo genuine and sincere faith.
