Some of my listeners, I’m sure, will be offended at the very thought of helping out Mike Quinn.

Others, I know, feel very indebted to him for his contributions to Mormon History.

    Offended? Inasmuch as ye have done it unto the least of these, my brethren . . .

    Quinn’s books and articles are very well written every claim is thoroughly sourced and cited. You may not agree with his editorial conclusions, however, you have to respect his professionalism, as a researcher and historian.

    I own and have read several of his books. As a matter of a fact the Hierarchy series sat on my bookshelf for several years. When I finally read them it was as though I finally could understand why many of the brethren behave the way they do. Reading his books were a transforming and spiritually enlightening experience for me.

    It saddens me that the Church I have belonged to my entire life has little respect for the intellectual freedom of skilled professionals like Michael Quinn. What are they afraid of?

    Thank you Mike!

    If Quinn is making contact with the internet community through this page, wouldn’t it be possible for you to interview him? I doubt he’d refuse you…..

    I’ve contacted Michael several times…including in person twice, and so far he’s just not comfortable being interviewed. I’ve even offered him $$$$. Like good money. :) So far, to no avail.

    But I have lots of friends gently nudging him….so I can be patient. I definitely still have hope…..

    Wow. That’s actually kind of surprising. I figured that Quinn would want to do that.

    Thanks again for all that you do.

    While Mike Quinn’s academic and scholarly talents far exceeds his peers, his inpetitude toward difficulties in his life brought him exactly where he is today.
    The Church, unfortunately preys on faithful and weak. As Grant Palmer demonstrated, one can go very far with “the truth”.
    Most of the people (including me) thought Br. palmer was effectively silenced after his so called disfellowship.
    All we have to do is listen Jehn Dehlin’s 4 part Podcasts and see if he avoids in any point of the inteview telling it how itt is.
    I do feel lots of emphaty for Mike, but nobody is going to be able help him while he’s sitting on sidelines and watching his life slide by him day by day.
    And John Dehlin, your interviews were with GP were beyond ordinary. I commend you for that.
