The "Becoming Like God" essay comes on the heels of other recent postings designed to help Mormons and others better understand sometimes-sticky theological or historical issues in Mormonism. Other essays include explorations of the faith’s former ban on blacks from entering its all-male priesthood and its long-discarded practice of plural marriage.
