Mormon Sunday School for the Masses

What about those of us who want to dig deeper?

As members of the LDS Church, we are taught to “liken the scriptures” unto ourselves.  We are also taught that education and learning, or seeking truth in all things, is of great benefit.  We also believe that all truth can be assimilated into our belief system.  Yet, when I attend a Mormon Sunday School class, I often find the same teachings and discussions previously taught and taught in the same manner.  Where’s the correlation to other belief systems? Where’s the likening it to my situation? Where’s the  historical context  of the scriptures presented?
