PLURAL MARRIAGE: Brian Hales, (researcher, editor & author) joined with me tomorrow night (Sun • Jan 11 • 5-7 pm MST) to discuss his new book. His wife, Laura, also participated adding her thoughts to the discussing.
Two years ago, he published a 3 volume set on Joseph Smith's introduction to plural marriage including all known sources. Just recently he uploaded all of these sources available for those interested in what is by far the most comprehensive collection.
This April 2015 his new book will be available 350 pages to condense the 3 volume set to be more readable for a larger audience.
We addressed some topics:
- Questions determining Joseph Smith's views
- Is PM: 1. Sex 2. Family or 1. Family 2. Sex?
- Sealing for time only
- Sealing for time & eternity
- Sealing for eternity only
- Relationship of Parley P Pratt & his wife
- Civil marriage
