Description

BYU Studies vol. 50, no. 3, features a variety of articles, documents, and reviews. Former BYU academic vice president John Tanner leads off this issue with a paper he presented at an Oxford University symposium celebrating the 400th anniversary of the King James Bible. The King James Bible in America: Pilgrim, Prophet, President, Preacher explores the influence of the KJB in the lives of John Winthrop, Joseph Smith, Abraham Lincoln, and Martin Luther King. Following a long tradition of printing the Maeser Faculty Lecture, BYU Studies presents John Welch’s address given in 2011, Thy Mind, O Man, Must Stretch, which focuses on the mission of BYU and all pursuit of knowledge. In his address, Welch quotes Stephen Webb, professor of religion and philosophy at Wabash College, who discovered Joseph Smith while researching an obscure heretical position on the nature of Jesus Christ. We are pleased, therefore, to include in this issue of BYU Studies an excerpt from Webb’s forthcoming book, Jesus Christ, Eternal God: Heavenly Flesh and the Metaphysics of Matter. This excerpt, from a chapter titled Godbodied: The Matter of the Latter-day Saints, is a fascinating look at LDS theology through the eyes of a non-LDS admirer of Joseph Smith.
