This being the one hundredth issue of BYU Studies Quarterly for which I have served as editor in chief, this occasion calls for a moment of grateful celebration. I am extremely thankful for the numerous people whose goodwill and devoted service make the continued publication of this journal possible. Their wise judgment and brilliant assistance mean the world to me! They include longtime BYU faculty members in many disciplines, members of our staff and editorial boards, a steady stream of new blood from undergraduates who toil happily as interns and budding colleagues, as well as committed authors, university administrators, and ultimately our loyal readers, no doubt the most important of all. Without you, who subscribe to and read BYU Studies Quarterly, all of this would be of feeble interest.
And so I am very happy to introduce you readers to the outstanding contents of this issue of this journal, from the cover's expansive view of Kolob Canyon in Zion National Park to its wide variety of articles, reviews, literature, photography, and scripture studies. I hope that you will find as much rewarding joy and satisfying learning on these pages as we have found in bringing this issue together and into print.
