Dialogue Lectures #31 w/Past Dialogue Editors @ Sunstone

The 31st Dialogue podcast, released in honor of our Dialogue Jubilee on September 30, has past editors reminiscing and “Celebrating 50 Years of Mormonism’s Leading Journal” as recorded at the Sunstone session of the same name. From the Sunstone abstract: “Beginning with its first issue, which showed two people sitting under a tree engaged in
conversation, Dialogue: A Journal of Mormon Thought has encouraged dialogue by publishing leading-edge scholarly articles, personal essays, fiction, poetry, sermons, and other writing that have engaged Latter-day Saints on vital subjects within Mormonism and in its interface with the world. Join founders, editors, and others in this retrospective celebration.
