Subject Periodicals; Mormons; Religious thought; Philosophy and religion
Description 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.

Description 60 I Dialogue Among little known and obscure source material utilized in Joseph Smith's New England Heritage is the original manuscript of the Lucy Smith history. This document has not heretofore been cited in Mormon scholarship, except as reflected in later versions of Lucy's history — notably the Coray manuscript and the version published by Orson Pratt in England in 1853 under the title, Biographical Sketches of Joseph Smith the Prophet. Handwriting of the original manuscript identifies it as a Lucy Smith holograph. This manuscript provides added insight to the Smith family and Mormon beginnings that was either passed over in the Coray edition or added by Lucy in revision. The reader may compare the preliminary manuscript with the Biographical Sketches version of Lucy's history in the parallel presentation of Lovisa Mack's healing in chapter four. In conclusion, Joseph Smith's New England Heritage is a valuable study of the lives of Joseph Smith's grandparents that broadly illuminates the immediate environment that produced the Mormon prophet. If Dr. Anderson's presentation of the heroic side of his subject's lives seems to obscure any failings, the book nevertheless offers a serious alternative to the image of Joseph Smith and his immediate ancestors that has been portrayed by his critics.

Salt Lake City: Studio West, 1971. 77 pp. More and more acts of poetry are being committed by Mormons these days. Before me are four volumes attesting to a variety of interests and a variety in printing and format. I am happy to report that the best of these, Spaces in the Sage, appears under a new imprint "Parliament Press," tastefully done at Bookcraft, inaugurating what I hope is a trend dedicated to the publishing of good things for their own sake. What You Feel, I Share, printed by Bookcraft, has an attractive typeface, but is marred by unnecessary illustrations. Speak to Me, by Christie Lund Coles, a poet who has been publishing in Church magazines for many years, would be better without the awkward pen and ink drawings. This brings up the question: do poems need pictures? I would give a resounding "No" if books like Reflections on a Gift of Watermelon Pickle* weren't so satisfying, the lost, the found (in lower case) seems to be a successful meshing of poetry and photography, although the poems are not always as good as the pictures. This paperback book is apparently published at the behest of the photographer, Brian Record. So much for printing; now to poetry. Dennis Drake is most successful when he forgets his beliefs and concentrates on deeply felt emotion or imagery. This short poem seems to be completely realized (and the beliefs come through too): * Anthology for children (and adults) by Dunning / Lueders / Smith, Lothrop, 1967.
