Ep1-Interview with Blake Ostler

My father Blake Ostler is a well-known Mormon Theologian and Scholar (In a addition to being a full-time attorney ) Over the years he has written several articles for scholarly Mormon publications such as Dialogue, FARMS, Sunstone Mag, Element, and others.
What I want to do is take the complex issues in these books and discuss them in a way that makes sense to the average listener. So this is sort of going to be like taking me to school on a lot of these issues and topics.
For the most part we will go chapter by chapter of each book starting with the first one: The Attributes of God. However, I wanted to start off with an episode of getting to know Blake Ostler. His background, journey and motivations for writing these books and so forth.


  1. That was a fascinating anecdote about Blake Ostler persuading Neal A. Maxwell to change his mind about God being timeless, especially the detail that Elder Maxwell gave him a letter to quote from to verify the story. Has Blake posted that letter publicly anywhere? I'd be intrigued to see what exactly Elder Maxwell said in it.
