Education: Moving Toward and Under the Law of Consecration

Question: What are some of the basic problems that need to be solved to improve the effectiveness of teaching religion to the members of the Church? Answer: This problem has been a deep concern of mine for a long time and I know it has all of the brethren. In order for us to more effectively teach the gospel to the members of the Church, we must first go to the home or the family. Where the... Read more

Chiasmus in the Book of Mormon

Practically since the day the Book of Mormon rolled off the press in 1830, those who believed in the book asserted that it obviously read like a Hebrew text. Those who were not so credulous insisted that it obviously read like anything but a Hebrew text. Actually, the only thing that became obvious was the fact that neither the believers nor the unbelievers were citing very many specific examples... Read more

The Voice of the Prophet

Revelation is a vital and complex process and nowhere is its vitality and complexity more evident than in the Doctrine and Covenants. Steven C. Walker analyzes various forms of revelation and ways it has been received in all of scripture, particularly as received by Joseph Smith in the Doctrine and Covenants. The histories of the revelations within this powerful book of scripture in connection... Read more

Beyond Human Nature: The Contemporary Debate over Moral Natural Law

Professor Midgley's monograph is a carefully reasoned and informative account of the status of natural law thinking in recent Christian theology. As such it will be of interest to theologians, political theorists, and philosophers. The present reviewer, in an article published in the Journal of Politics a decade ago, found much that was rich and suggestive for political theory in the work of such... Read more

The Dead Sea Scrolls, 1947–1969

Wilson's updating of his readable summary is of interest to BYU Studies mainly because of his eight-page treatment of Mormonism in closing. As an eminent critic and author, Wilson has shown himself a man for all subjects. Though a self-confessed nonexpert on the scrolls, his narrative powers brought his work wide attention as a model of conciseness. Incorporated with small modification into the... Read more

The Saga of the Book of Abraham

A quick glance over the preface and chapters two and three of The Saga of the Book of Abraham may lead to the hasty decision that the reader is once again confronted with the usual rehashing of the same old, tiresome things. But, happily, such is not the case. This volume is precisely what it is purported to be: a report of "nearly" all known information that has a bearing on the background of... Read more

God, Man, and the Universe

God, Man and the Universe is the title of the first of a four-volume series to be known as Foundations of the Millennial Kingdom of Christ. At present it is the only volume from the press, although the other volumes are in process. They are to be titled: volume two, The Gospel of Jesus Christ; volume three, The Kingdom of God; and volume four, Latter-day Prophecy. All who have attempted to write... Read more

Rainflowers

Rainflowers, by Marilyn McMeen Miller, is an appropriately immaculate and sun-illuminated volume of fifty-four delicate lyrical verses and poems. It should be read as variations on a theme, without looking for Emily Dickinson's nerve-galvanizing, spine-rumbling visions, or for the perfect technique displayed in the work of Sara Teasdale, though it may evoke a memory or two of their personal...
