Mormon Neoorthodoxy, A Crisis Theology
This excellent book describing the continuing evolution of the church
over the past 1/2 century is now entirely online.
In this exciting book, O. Kendall White, Jr., contrasts Mormon
neo-orthodoxy, an emerging theological movement within the Mormon
church today, with traditional Mormonism and examines the cultural
context out of which Mormon neo-orthodoxy developed. While White
argues that traditional Mormonism is characterized by doctrines of a
finite God, the fundamental goodness of human nature, and exaltation
by merit, he finds that Mormon neo-orthodoxy boldly proclaims the
sovereignty of God, the depravity of humanity, ans salvation by grace.
