However, he still attends church regularly and maintains strong ties to Mormonism.
In this two-part episode, cross posted with our sister site A Thoughtful Faith, James Patterson sits down with Kirk to talk about his life growing up in Mormonism, his background and education in religious studies, his experience working for BYU-Idaho, and his resignation from that position and the church
He also talks about starting the Mormon Book Review and his experience working with BYU’s Maxwell Institute, as well as his outlook on a number of different Mormon topics.
