Volume 38, No. 2
The Summer 2005 issue begins with Jason H. Lindquist exploring the use and evolution of the doctrine of "keys" and elaborates on how they were presented initially and how they have changed in subsequent years. Following this is "The Psalms" by Richard J. Clifford, which takes a comprehensive look at Psalms, including the history of the book, and the different genres and structures of psalms included in the book. Next up is a look by David Clark Knowlton at the church in Chile and Mexico where the question must be asked, what does it mean to be a member of the church? This question, and more, are addressed in Knowlton's article as he looks at discrepancies between census data and church records to begin the conversation. Following this Mark L. Grover writes about the growth of the church in Latin America and the difficult path the church has had while attempting to gain a foothold in specifically South America. Finally, we have "The Making of Grave Community Sin" by Garth N. Jones, which looks at poverty faced by saints in developing and third-world countries all over the world. Jones speaks of reconciling his guilt with this fact and expands on ways he thinks more can be done to alleviate this suffering. Also included in this issue are a pair of fictional pieces, several poems, and a collection of reviews.
