Reflections of a Mormon Historian is an anthology of essays by Leonard J. Arrington, appointed in 1972 as Mormon Church Historian, the first professional historian to serve in the office. Offering a middle-of-the-road perspective rather than a polarized view of Church history either attacking or defending claims of the faith, Reflections of a Mormon Historian includes the essays "The Search for Truth and Meaning in Mormon History", "Clothe These Bones: The Reconciliation of Faith and History", "The Intellectual Tradition of the Latter-day Saints", and much more. A few black-and-white photographs, an extensive bibliography, an index, a chronology of Arrington's life, a biographical sketch of Arrington by historian Ronald W. Walker, and a tribute by Arrington's daughter round out this comprehensive collection of Arrington's perspectives and overview of Latter-day Saint history. Highly recommended for religious history shelves.
