Terryl & Fiona Givens: Why Choose Faith?

  • Valparaiso Stake Center 1105 Valparaiso Ave Menlo Park, CA United States (map)

Questions about God's plan for LGBT people can shake and even topple our faith. Yet, these same questions can be a powerful impetus for growth as we engage with them and develop the ability to believe in the midst of challenges (D&C 46:14). Join us for an evening with Terryl and Fiona Givens as we explore some of the best reasons to believe. 

Terryl Givens is professor of literature and religion at the University of Richmond, where he holds the Jabez A. Bostwick Chair in English. He has participated in the Joseph Smith Papers project, and has authored several books in Mormon Studies, including, By the Hand of Mormon, People of Paradox, and Wrestling the Angel: The Foundations of Mormon Thought.

Fiona Givens (MA European History, University of Richmond) has published articles on LDS history and culture, and is a popular speaker at conferences and workshops. She has co-authored two works with her husband: The God Who Weeps, and The Crucible of Doubt.
