Periodicals; Mormons; Religious thought; Philosophy and religion
Independent national quarterly established to express Mormon culture and examine the relevance of religion to secular life. It is edited by Mormons who wish to bring their faith into dialogue with human experience as a whole and to foster artistic and scholarly achievement based on their cultural heritage. The journal encourages a variety of viewpoints; although every effort is made to insure accurate scholarship and responsible judgment, the views expressed are those of the individual authors and are not necessarily those of the Mormon Church or of the editors.

Thomas Wood was an instructor of English at Brigham Young University until his recent resignation. Douglas Hill, also instructor of English at B.Y.U. is a frequent contributor to Dialogue. Their travels together, described in this essay, earlier yielded "Early Mormon Churches in Utah" (Dialogue: Vol. I, No. 3) Sometime late in January or early February, winter's dregs and the rancid crackers of academic routine begin to yield singularly stale sop. During those scraps of days in 1966 both of us turned our mental pockets inside out several times and put all our odds and ends on the table where we could pick them over for our mutual amusement, down to the last snarl of twine and thought.
