Winter 2020

The Winter 2020 Issue begins with Patrick Mason’s look at Politics of Mormon History and Colleen Karnas-Haines’ look at the Children’s Songbook. And if you thought moving away from the name “Mormon” in English was tricky, wait til you read the story of changing the Church’s name in China from Chiung Hwang Chen. Find beautiful poetry and personal voices and many book reviews including reviews of some recent novels on polygamy. And much more!
