Earlier Mormon thought is demonstrated to have included a concept of God as a being in process.

Praise for the Exploring Mormon Thought series: There is nothing currently available that is even close to the rigor and sophistication of these volumes. Roberts and John A. Widtsoe may have had interesting insights in the early part of the twentieth century, but they had neither the temperament nor the training to give a rigorous defense of their views in dialogue with a wider stream of Christian theology.

We do an overview of the book and then dive into the first chapter. If we take 'God is Love' seriously what does that tell us about our relationship with God and others? Is God's love unconditional? The Book of Mormon has both obvious 19th century influences and anachronisms as well as very strong evidence for having ancient origins.
The Expansion theory, introduced in an article by my father in , looks at all the evidence and tries to come up with a solution that preserves both.
