Grant Palmer – “My Ah-Ha Moments While Researching Mormon History”

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. 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. He and his wife Connie live in Sandy, Utah. They like to travel and enjoy raising homing pigeon and parakeets.
