The oldest, independent Mormon Studies journal, since 1966

Dialogue is a Journal of Mormon Thought

Dialogue: A Journal of Mormon Thought is an independent quarterly established to express Mormon culture and to examine the relevance of religion to secular life. It is edited by Latter-day Saints who wish to bring their faith into dialogue with the larger stream of world religious thought and with human experience as a whole and to foster artistic and scholarly achievement based on their cultural heritage. The journal encourages a variety of viewpoints; although every effort is made to ensure accurate scholarship and responsible judgement, the views expressed are those of the individual authors and are not necessarily those of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints or of the editors.

In 1966, Dialogue: A Journal of Mormon Thought began its extraordinary journey with a powerful charge from Eugene England, a Mormon writer, teacher and scholar. “My faith encourages my curiosity and awe,” Gene wrote in the very first issue of the journal. “It thrusts me out into relationship with all creation” and “encourages me to enter into dialogue.”

Free online access for all

In 2019, we made the decision to change the way that we finance the journal’s operations. We moved from a subscription model to a donation model, which allowed us to make all 54 years of Dialogue entirely free for online users. By placing Dialogue online and making it free, we ensured that it would always be available to readers, scholars, researchers, and anyone with an interest in Mormon thought and culture.
We have been able to do all of this with the generous support of donors like you. And, with your help, we can now make sure that Dialogue continues forever.
