513: A Non-Member Reads the Book of Mormon — David Michael and his “My Book of Mormon Podcast”
December 10, 2014
In this episode J. Nelson-Seawright interviews David Michael about his experience creating his new podcast “My Book of Mormon,” wherein David shares his thoughts and witty comments on each chapter of Mormonism’s central book of scripture.
With no background in Mormonism, David is reading the Book of Mormon cover to cover for the first time in an attempt to discover why millions of people have come to believe in its writings. As a result, David offers an insightful and entertaining “outsider’s perspective” on the characters, stories, and lessons he encounters.
In this episode, the two discuss David’s Christian upbringing, his thoughts on spirituality and religion, his observations on Mormonism, and review his experience reading key stories in the Book of Mormon up to Alma 57.
