Summer 2014

The Summer 2014 issue begins with a thought provoking and honest discourse between Ryan Cragun and Seth Payne about the terminology and narrative surrounding those who leave the church. This is followed by Roger Terry’s look at Mormonism’s use of archaic and outdated English pronouns, then Stan Larson takes another look at Joseph Smith’s accounts of the first vision. Emily Jensen then provides the highlights of 10+ years of Dialogue online. Also included in this issue is a great selection of poetry, round table discussions, fiction, and reviews.
