Volume 57:4 (2018)

This issue is the first to appear under the leadership of Steven C. Harper and leads off with his personal narrative of his history with BYU Studies and Latter-day Saint scholarship. This issue’s cover is a painting by Robert T. Pack, “Mary Whitmer and Moroni,” portraying the moment that Mary Whitmer is shown the plates by an angelic messenger. It serves as an accompaniment to the article by John W. Welch on the dates and events surrounding the translation of the Book of Mormon in 1829. The next article is Keith A. Erekson’s, which analyzes a frequently told story that Elvis Presley made notes in a Book of Mormon and concludes that the notes are not Elvis’s. Fred E. Woods’s article tells the story of the friendship between Cecil B. DeMIlle and David O. McKay, illustrated with many photographs of the two of them together. Richard Neitzel Holzapfel and Thomas R. Wells present photographs of the First Presidency on the day of the Salt Lake Temple dedication, April 6, 1893. Eve Koller’s study of a linguistic component of certain names in the Book of Mormon shows what could be evidence of both Egyptian and Hebrew aspects. An essay, two film reviews, and a document look at the life of Mormon pioneer Jane Manning James and the film Jane and Emma.
