As part of its ongoing mission to address criticisms leveled at the Church, the Foundation for Apologetic Information and Research (FAIR) held its annual conference at the South Towne Exposition Center in Sandy, Utah, Aug. 6-7, featuring presentations from 14 scholars about various aspects of Church doctrine and history.
On these pages are summaries of four of the presentations, dealing with science and the Book of Mormon, the authenticity of the Book of Abraham, the reliability of Mormon history produced by the Church, and the temple as a place of ascent to God.
FAIR, which is an independent group unaffilated with the Church, maintains an online presence with several Web sites, including a Wiki and a blog. At the main Web site, www.fairlds.org, full-text versions of some of this and past conference presentations are published.
