This issue is the first “issue 2” in the Review’s history. After a first issue in 1994 dedicated solely to the review of a single book, I guess they felt that there were other important publications on the Book of Mormon that merited attention as well. This issue settles into the standard pattern seen up to this point. There are 16 reviews of a mix of topics, from pro-Mormon, anti-Mormon (including the now seemingly mandatory reviews of the Tanners work from Roper and Tvedtnes), and Mormon fiction. I have recommended 9 out of the 16 reviews/articles, and it is worth pointing out that 8 (one of which is not recommended) of the 16 reviews dealt with critical claims in some capacity—that is 50%! Other than the first issue of volume 6 (which was at 100%), this is the highest ratio. We maybe at a turning point, where the Review starts to find its identity. Still some fluff, of course, but the fluff has been considerably reduced (two of the none critical reviews are substantive enough to be recommended here).
