One of the unique characteristics of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is its emphasis on education and scholarship.
Studies have shown that among Latter-day Saints (Mormons), higher levels of education are strongly correlated with higher church attendance, and higher levels of devotion. (see footnote)
In LDS scripture, Mormons are encouraged to study and learn.
This website Mormon Scholars Testify gives LDS scholars the opportunity to express their views and feelings about the Gospel of Jesus Christ and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
There are some who may feel that people of education and learning can’t be religious.
It is hoped that these testimonies will help dispel that myth, educate, and give insights into the thoughts and feelings of LDS scholars.
