I’m on the road, and I think that I neglected to call attention to this book review, which appeared in the pages of Interpreter: A Journal of Latter-day Saint Faith and Scholarship on Friday:
Review of Eric D. Huntsman, Becoming the Beloved Disciple: Coming unto Christ through the Gospel of John (Springville, UT: CFI, an imprint of Cedar Fort, 2018). 176 pages. $19.99.
Abstract: What does the Gospel of John say about discipleship? Does early Christian discipleship matter today? Can coming unto Christ be different for each person? Eric Huntsman offers answers to these questions through his excellent scholarly background in Greek, which lends to crisp exegetic interpretations on the fourth gospel. Even more, Huntsman provides valuable hermeneutic applications for a growing diversified membership of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Indeed, this book delivers a better understanding of how each child of God uniquely comes to know Jesus Christ.
Also new on the Interpreter website:

And here are some other things that you might want to look at, from friends of Interpreter:
And, finally, here is some news from a ministry tour that Elder Ulisses Soares of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles has undertaken in Central America:
I was very pleased to see that Elder Soares — who obviously speaks English as well as his native Brazilian Portuguese — also speaks what sounds to my ears, at least, excellent Spanish. That’s a great thing for the Saints in Latin America.
