Paul Nelson, KSL Newsradio A program to bridge the gap between Mormons and Evangelicals seems to be getting more popular. Local church leaders are planning more sessions of the "Bridges" course this week in Park City.

Salt Lake Theological Seminary Director Ken Mulholland says tens of thousands of Evangelicals have gone through it. "We believe the gospel, and literally the gospel means ‘good news.' If the good news doesn't sound like good news, then something is wrong."

Bridges is an intensive course to help people understand the culture within the LDS Church. "Out of the many sessions which I have led with several thousand people, I can think of only one person who objected to our approach," Mulholland says.

Mulholland says this changes the old stance Evangelicals used to take. He says the discussions between the two religions used to be more combative.
