Robert at Scriptural Mormonism does a good job discussing the place of grace in “old fashion Mormonism” (More or less Mormonism from early 20th century up through the 90’s) I’d add that grace in a lot of ways is misrepresented when that era’s thought is discussed. Often the difference is simply word choice to discuss the theology.
Terryl Givens has up an essay at First Things called “Mormons at the Forefront.” I’ll probably comment on it later this week at T&S.
Evolutionary psychology suggests God makes more sense than not. I’m not sure he sees the tension between EP giving “just so” stories and claims it proves something. Still it is interesting that EP tends to note that at least aspects of religion are genetic. The debate is over how much of that is false positives from basic agency senses versus noticing something in the world. (The ways eyes help us deal with real objects in the world)
