Promise and Peril of the Mormon Moment: A Conversation

Published in The Faith Angle Forum on June 18, 2012



As Gov. Romney’s campaign approaches the convention and election, EPPC’s Faith Angle Forum brought together journalists and leaders in the LDS Church to discuss “The Promise and Peril of the Mormon Moment.”

Clayton Christensen, a best-selling author, Harvard Business School professor, and a Mormon friend of Gov. Romney, and Michael Otterson, Managing Director of Public Affairs for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, addressed journalists’ questions about Mormon culture, how the Mormon faith may affect a believer’s professional or public action, and whether Gov. Romney would benefit from sharing his faith more openly on the campaign trail.

The event was held in Washington, D.C., on June 18, 2012. Selected video is available below:
