Journal 32:3

Bruce Hafen encourages BYU to become an environment where professional and religious aspirations are integrated, and faculty work together to help students become "productive citizen of both society and the kingdom of God." Neal A. Maxwell reminds BYU professionals—even though their skills are varied—they are under the "same spiritual obligations to keep the same commandments and the same...Read more

Discipleship and Scholarship

Elder Neal A. Maxwell gave this address at BYU on September 27, 1991, to a group of scholars. He encourages them to use their best scholarship while also building and protecting the kingdom of God. One of the striking dimensions of the restored gospel is the democracy of demands. Yet, it seeks to build an aristocracy of saints. Certain standards and requirements are laid upon all disciples. The... Read more

Elisha and the Children: The Question of Accepting Prophetic Succession

The account of Elisha's curse of the forty-two young people and their seemingly unjustified fatal end when attacked by two bears has puzzled Latter-day Saints as well as other students of the Bible. An enlightening solution to this unusual incident, as I argue here, also leads to a clearer view of an important underlying issue: the acceptance or nonacceptance of divinely approved succession among...

The Ancient State: The Rulers and the Ruled

Books need not be written for professionals in order to be valuable. For example, when written by a gifted writer, a travel diary can be a source of pleasure and instruction, for a visitor may see things that go unnoticed by those who inhabit a land. Thus I confess a fondness for the genre for which Alexis de Tocqueville set the standard. In the 1850s, the Latter-day Saints first became a focus... Read more

The Autobiography of B. H. Roberts

Mormons now have a first-person narrative of a significant leader—a narrative that stands on the same level as the autobiography of Parley P. Pratt. Not just anyone who writes an account of his or her life will attract interest beyond the built-in audience of the immediate family. But when you combine a varied life extending over the turbulent decades of the late nineteenth and early twentieth... Read more

Church, State, and Politics: The Diaries of John Henry Smith

In volume 4 of the Signature Press Diaries Series, Jean Bickmore White has edited Smith's extensive diaries into one, albeit... Read more
