Does the Mormon church support Joel Skousen?
The Mormon Church does not officially support any author whether they be Mormon or non-Mormon. Individual leaders, or lay members, may support the author, but this does not reflect the seal of approval from the Church.
The Mormon Church supports, officially supports, authors whose books represent their doctrine correctly. In order to accomplish this they typically must receive approval from those located in Salt Lake City.
While attending college I had two professor’s who wanted their book to be supported by the Church, as official doctrine, and not personal opinion. When reviewed they were asked to remove a certain quote from a General Authority, which wasn’t official church doctrine. Once the quote was removed, the Church provided approval for their stamp of support.
Hope this clarifies your question.
