This issue marks the twenty-fifth anniversary of the Journal of Book of Mormon Studies. To celebrate this milestone this volume includes a retrospective about past editorships and a prospective looking ahead to the future of Book of Mormon studies.
Volume 25 also focuses on the seminal work of Grant Hardy. Thirteen years ago he published The Book of Mormon: A Reader’s Edition, following it up six years ago with Understanding the Book of Mormon: A Reader’s Guide. Hardy’s work has signaled another advance in Book of Mormon studies as the scripture receives increased attention in the wider academy. We as editors see his work as transitional in a crucial way, and as we mark the twenty-fifth anniversary of the Journal, we allow Hardy’s work to help us assess what has been done and what the future holds.
