#4 - Sterling M. McMurrin »7 of 10 «
Sterling McMurrin (1914-1996) – Sterling McMurrin was personal friends with the LDS Prophet David O. Mckay. Yet, to some members of the church McMurrin was a controversial figure due to his unorthodox opinions. Nonetheless, few doubt Sterling McMurrin’s intellectual prowess. McMurrin earned a B.A. and M.A. from the University of Utah and a Ph.D. in Philosophy from the University of Southern California. While a faculty member at the University of Utah, McMurrin was asked to be the United States Commissioner of Education under President John F. Kennedy. His book “The Theological Foundations of the Mormon Religion” is still considered an important treatise on Mormon theology.
