Another week of embarrassing silence and failure from “Interpreter”?



“Interpreter,” as some critics wish it were


I’m pleased to announce that Interpreter: A Journal of Mormon Scripture has published two new (related) reviews by Professor Louis C. Midgley:


To this point, we still haven’t missed a single week since we began publication on 3 August 2012.  At least one new article or review has appeared every single Friday, to say nothing of our blog and our scripture roundtables and our news announcements and our videos and . . .  Well, you get the idea.  (And more things are yet to be announced.)  Which may perhaps explain why certain critics — critics who were loudly and triumphantly proclaiming their confidence, back in January, that Interpreter would soon be dead and forgotten — seem to have quietly dropped that prophecy.


Interpreter is available without charge in various electronic formats, and is now also available, at cost, through print-on-demand.  Those who ( like me) still prefer to do most of their reading in actual books and book-like things will enjoy this, I think, and I encourage them to sign up.  This is a bit of an experiment on our part, and we’re still waiting to see whether or not it will be successful.

    I prophesy that certain critics will one day be dead and forgotten.

    There you go again defining yourself in terms of your critics. Most of us don’t know anything about your critics until _you_ tell us.

      Perhaps it’s an in-joke. Don’t let it bother you.

      And I certainly don’t define myself in terms of my critics. If I did, I would have checked myself into a facility for the criminally insane many years ago.

      Keep calm and carry on.
