Robert Barrett and Susan Easton Black's article on Arnold Friberg, Harry Anderson, Tom Lovell, and Ken Riley, who created art for the LDS Church in the 1950s and '60s will help you appreciate art you probably see frequently but may have taken for granted. Barrett, himself a prominent LDS artist, tells why such art is important, and Black, a masterful storyteller, tells the stories behind the four artists who created it.

An article by Noel B. Reynolds discusses how Lehi and Nephi saw parallels between their experiences and that of Moses and used that similarity to try to convince their people that their work was divinely ordained. A short study on the Hebrew phrase "Behold I" adds yet more evidence of Joseph Smith's divine inspiration of the Pearl of Great Price. David O. McKay is the focus of Mary Jane Woodger's article about how he expressed his love to his wife, Emma Ray, through his letters. A tribute to Hugh Nibley, delivered at his funeral on March 5, 2005, shows how the themes of Nibley's work fit nicely with the Articles of Faith. Church history buffs will appreciate a study of how cholera affected the Mormon pioneers, written by Pat Rushton, a BYU professor of nursing. It is interesting to learn just how devastating this one disease was for travelers in that time period.

Two short pieces are about the Church from a Japanese perspective: One is by a sister closely involved in the development of the Relief Society in Japan, and the other connects Elijah's mission to a traditional Japanese day of remembrance.
