From David Morris:

I am pleased to announce that the new issue of the International Journal of Mormon Studies is released and can be accessed on www.ijmsonline.org. You will also find a link to order a hard copy. We have tried to keep the price down to a minimum in order that you might support the printed version. If any profits are made they will be reinvested into the EMSA programme of conferences. The full issue can also be downloaded gratis at the journal home page.
This issue contains articles from distinguished scholars both Mormon and non-Mormon who present different perspectives of the international experience of Mormonism, many of which were presented at the 2008 EMSA conference in Finland.

  1. Nicely done. I have only read the first article, which I found very interesting. Keep up the great work.

  2. Kevin Barney says:

    I’ve read several of the articles so far. They were good, and I like the look and feel of the presentation. Well done.

  3. Steve G. says:

    Cool stuff here. As this is the first I heard of this I also went back and looked up issue 1. The article ‘Can there be a Second Harvest’ in issue 1 was amazing. I wish I’d had that when I was a missionary in Europe. It would have probably made me more empathetic to the Saints there and the hardships they faced which I barely understood as an American mormon.

    I felt impressed that I should print this and send it to a recently sent out missionary to Europe.

    I’m sure issue 2 is great as well, thanks for sharing this.
