On behalf of the board of trustees of The Interpreter Foundation and consistent with the counsel of President Russell M. Nelson, I’m pleased to announce that we are renaming the Foundation’s principal regular publication. It will now be known as
Interpreter: A Journal of Latter-day Saint Faith and Scholarship
Not only will the journal be renamed but, over the relatively near short-term, we will be reworking our websites in order to reflect that new name. This will be done, of course, with the least possible disruption to our thousands of subscribers and readers.
We thank you for your interest and for your support, and we wish for you a happy, healthy, and satisfying 2019.
Daniel C. Peterson
President, The Interpreter Foundation
