Mormon Grant Palmer – Joseph Smith’s Changing View of God
Joseph Smith’s Changing View of God As Seen In His First Vision Accounts – A lecture given at the Salt Lake City Library – November 6th, 2013, at 7:00 pm – By Grant H. Palmer
Grant H. Palmer (M.A., American history, Brigham Young University) is a three-time director of LDS Institutes of Religion in California and Utah, a former instructor at the Church College of New Zealand, and an LDS seminary teacher at two Utah locations. He has been active in the Mormon History Association and on the board of directors of the Salt Lake Legal Defenders Association.
His list of positions and teaching environments is extremely varied, and very interesting. During all the years he was working, Grant continued his research about the church, and eventually retired early from CES because he could no longer reconcile what his research showed with what he was asked to teach.
Grant is the author of An Insider’s View of Mormon Origins (Signature Books, 2002) and The Incomparable Jesus (Kofford Books, 2005). He has also penned articles for the Salt Lake Tribune, Sunstone Magazine, The John Whitmer Journal and the Midwestern Journal of Theology.
