Publishing scholarship informed by the restored gospel of Jesus Christ

BYU's Premier
Academic Journal

BYU Studies publishes scholarship informed by the restored gospel of Jesus Christ. We exist to inspire learning “by study and also by faith” (D&C 88:118) in three primary constituencies:

  • Educated nonspecialist readers/subscribers
  • Scholars whose work merits publication in a venue committed to both revealed and discovered truth
  • Students who gain experiential learning while making vital contributions

BYU New Testament Commentary Series​

The BYU New Testament Commentary series is a two-pronged project that seeks to make a new, more accessible rendition of ancient Greek texts of the New Testament available and provide an in-depth commentary of each book of the New Testament from a Latter-day Saint perspective.

Book of Mormon
Critical Text Project

Professor Royal Skousen has spent more than thirty years meticulously researching the original and printer’s manuscripts of the Book of Mormon, revealing discrepancies and making a case for the type of translation the Book of Mormon is. Every page, every sentence, every word, letter, and mark are accounted for in the landmark Critical Text Project, arguably the most important Book of Mormon research to date.

BYU Studies Poetry and Essay Contests

Each year, BYU Studies hosts a poetry contest and an essay contest. Winners receive a cash prize and will be published in future issues of BYU Studies Quarterly.
