Latter-day Peace Studies presents: Come, Follow Me
Episode 9: Alma 36-38
Ben and Shiloh talk about Alma’s fatherly admonitions to his sons Helaman and Shiblon. They talk about clues that Alma leaves us into the foundations of his own testimony, and discuss about the nature of and doctrine of “Christ” as found in these chapters. While we typically talk about the “doctrine of Christ” in general terms as simply the gospel, there is another more nuanced discussion that Shiloh and Ben explore as to what “Christ” is as the archetype of our humanity and what it means to take that name upon ourselves.
Shiloh lives in Bakersfield, CA, with his wife and four children. He spent his formative years growing up in Memphis, TN, and graduated from Brigham Young University with dual degrees in philosophy and geography. Shiloh is currently a graduate student at Claremont Graduate University pursuing a PhD in religion (focusing on Mormon Studies). He is the founder of Latter-day Peace Studies and co-produces LDPS Come, Follow Me's weekly podcast.
