Years ago I was lucky enough to participate in a close conversation about Mormon teachings about consecration with Joe Spencer I learned a great deal from those conversations and when much later I found the substance of many of those conversations reflected in this book of Joe s I was intrigued At first though I wasn t very impressed on a uick read through For Zion I thought I saw a lot of echoes of things we d talked about before a few new insights and then a lot of speculation which really didn t fit in with the topic at hand namely consecration and the Zion economy A nice book was my judgment but not a very good one Fortunately however Joe s book was nominated for an Association of Mormon Letters award which I am one of the judges for and so I was obliged to go back and read this book again closely And what I found really impressed me enough for me to feel obliged to eat a little crowThe disconnect which I thought I saw before was between the first half of the book which is a close sometimes overly dense theological reading of Paul s discussion of hope in his letter to the Romans and what I originally took to be the primary point of the book which is a historical textual and theological consideration of the Joseph Smith s writings about the sort of ideal social and economic relations ones characterized by euality and support for the poor that Mormons ought to aspire towards This time through that disconnect didn t strike me as significant at all I still think his Interlude focusing on the Book of Mormon between the two sections of the book doesn t accomplish what he clearly hopes it will but really that s a small point On the contrary I can much clearly see now how the kind of radical transformative object less hope that he sees Paul calling those who have accepted the gospel of Jesus to embrace really does connect strongly with not just the ideal but also the actual practice of recreating one s social and economic existence around a collective communitarian almost monastic determination to get away from the economy of the idol trade and instead embrace a notion of stewardship that leaves ownership almost entirely aside perhaps only subjectively but perhaps also literally The result is a powerful and genuinely insightful treatment of Mormon teachings about love and euality one I m going to have to think about for a while especially about the possible connections it may have for me anyway with the work of Charles Taylor John Milbank and James KA SmithJoe is not ultimately a Hugh Nibley he tip toes up to the edge of outright condemnation of American Mormonism but is appears ambivalent about actually looking over it There is an apologetic dare I say almost Panglossian tone to his treatment of Smith s revelations on consecration and how they were edited and changed in the early years into something different than what they originally were I can t deny that Joe lands some good punches against the sort of self excusing nostalgia that Mormon leftists like myself too freuently make use of but I would have liked to have seen him apply the same critiue against the implied even if unintended uasi mystical uietism that affects his own writings and that of other contemporary Mormon theologians like Adam Miller But hey saying someone isn t uite Hugh Nibley is hardly a criticism This is a much finer and thoughtful and even practical though I m not sure Joe himself recognizes that book than I d originally supposed I apologize for that and am happy to recommend it to every theologically inclined member of our shared faith Bertie's Guide to Life and Mothers of two continents separated by nearly two millennia In the first half Spencer engag.
