We are currently in production on a multimedia ebook focused on Hugh Nibley’s thinking on the relationship of politics and religion. Part of that multimedia ebook will be an interview with Senator Robert Bennett, who gives some of his own insight into the same subject matter.
The ebook will also contain a print version of a provocative talk from HN and a firsthand account off his not so glorious career as a political activist.
We asked Senator Bennett for this interview after seeing that he quoted extensively from Nibley in his book Leap of Faith: Confronting the Origins of the Book of Mormon. Bennett and Nibley were not political allies, but they share a strong belief in the teachings of Mormonism, as well as a willingness to say some things that tend to make some people uncomfortable. This video clip is an excerpt from the longer interview which will appear in the upcoming Nibley Digital Edition.
