the weeping god of mormonism

"how is it thou canst weep, seeing thou art holy, and from all eternity to all eternity?" (moses 7:29)

just finished reading (again) eugene england's "the weeping god of mormonism" from the spring 2002 dialogue: a journal of mormon thought. this is an awesome essay about the lost value of a finite diety in mormonism, a view which was highly held in the early days of the church, but has lost much appeal as the church has grown and sought favor from more people. an on-line version can be found here
