Maxwell Institute Journals

Excerpts from New Maxwell Institute Journals by Kevin Barney

The Neal A. Maxwell Institute for Religious Scholarship has reorganized its scripture study journals.

For many years it has published the Journal of Book of Mormon Studies. Originally that was a 6×9 text only scholarly journal. At some point the decision was made to make it an 8-1/2×11 glossy with lots of illustrations.  The narrow focus on the Book of Mormon meant that there was no outlet for studies on other Mormon scripture.

The Journal has been expanded and renamed the Journal of Book of Mormon & Restoration Scripture. The long time editor, S. Kent Brown has retired, so the new editor is Andrew Hedges.

There is also a new journal, which is not out yet but should first appear this year: Studies in the Bible and Antiquity. The editor is Brian Hauglid,  assisted by Carl Griffin.
