Joseph Fielding McConkie
McConkie was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) and the son of Bruce R. McConkie and Amelia Smith McConkie. In 1966, he married Brenda Kempton in the Salt Lake Temple.
McConkie received a Doctorate of Education from BYU in 1973 and was an LDS Chaplain in Vietnam. He served in many capacities in the LDS Church, including as president of the Scotland Edinburgh Mission from 1989 to 1992. He also served as president of a student stake at BYU and was an Institute Director in Seattle, Washington.
Before retiring, McConkie taught at BYU as a Professor of Ancient Scripture in the College of Religious Education.
Many of McConkie's books primarily address Joseph of Egypt, Joseph Smith, the Book of Mormon, and the revelations of the restoration. He said his book Between the Lines is an attempt to correct some misreadings of scripture.
