New Periodical for Gospel Study

PROVO, UTAH -- BYU's Religious Studies Center is introducing "The Religious Educator", a new periodical for LDS religion teachers focused on teaching methodology. "I think there are a lot of LDS magazines aimed at the broad Mormon audience: The New Era, The Ensign, BYU Studies. We aren't trying to re-invent the wheel; we've picked a niche," says Dr. Richard Neitzel Holzapfel, Editor-in-Chief. "All of these resources have great content to use in classes, but there just haven't been any that focus on how to apply that content." Each issue will also cover hard-to-teach topics, including doctrines on family and marriage.

The contributions to each issue are carefully reviewed and edited by experienced teachers, writers, and scholars. The advisory board, started by BYU religion faculty, sought out additional non-BYU faculty to join them -- from early morning seminary teachers to Institute directors around the country. "We want to make sure we have crossing of college and departmental lines so that there is a healthy cross pollination of views and insights on teaching," explains Holzapfel. He adds that the Associate Editor, Ted D. Stoddard, teaches writing courses for the business department, but is also a Gospel Doctrine teacher in his ward.

The Religious Educator will be published twice a year starting in early September. For more information visit .
