I love this book. I think everyone who has struggled with faith, intellectualism, church doctrines, or anything else regarding reconciling religious belief should read it. It's a wonderful collection of essays. It's out-of-print and can be hard to find, but it's a wonderful text.
Thoughtful essays that were both influential and comforting when I first started feeling out my religious boundaries. Not just comforting, as I read these essays, they helped me to gain confidence as I realized that I wouldn't just be thrown about by whatever anyone said. I found things here that I thought were true and other things that I didn't feel applied to me or that I didn't agree with. But, I respected everything written there. An excellent collection.

22 different intellectual scholars, who are also LDS, write off how and why they have faith. Every one is worth reading.

I will pick this book up from time to time to be reminded of the differing perspectives of thoughtful saints.
There were about 22 short essays about belief from various Mormon intellectuals. There were about 8 essays that really made this book worth it. I would really recommend "Lusterware" to someone who does not want to read the entire book.
I can't say enough good about this book! It is out of print so you'll pay atleast 50 bucks for it on amazon, but it is worth every penny...(easy for me to say, my brother bought it for me;) But seriously, READ IT!
Latter-day Saint scholars including Richard Bushman, Eugene England, Leonard J. Arrington, and others share their reflections on faith and belief.
Loved these.
