Spring 2018

The Spring 2018 Issue begins with Roger Terry’s “Authority and Priesthood in the LDS Church, Part 1: Definitions and Development” followed by a collaborative effort by John Ferguson III, Benjamin Knoll and Jana Riess looking at “The Word of Wisdom in Contemporary American Mormonism: Perceptions and Practice.” Inside the fiction section find new stories by Levi Peterson and Annette Haws. Also included are beautiful poems and fascinating reviews–including a second review of Steven L. Peck’s Gilda Trillim: Shepherdess of Rats.
