In this 2-part interview (audio and video), I speak with Edward L. Kimball: son of the late LDS Prophet Spencer W. Kimball. Edward Kimball is a retired law professor from Brigham Young University, and author of two biographies on Spencer W. Kimball: Spencer W. Kimball and Lengthen Your Stride, the Presidency of Spencer W. Kimball. Edward has also been an active supporter over the years of both Dialogue: A Journal of Mormon Thought and Sunstone magazine.
In this interview, we discuss:
- What it’s like to grow up the son of an LDS Prophet
- An intimate look at Edward’s impressions of President Kimball
- The 1978 Blacks and the Priesthood Revelation and the Equal Rights Amendment fight within the church
- Thoughts in reconciling the intellect with faith and the spirit
