Guest Editor: The name of Daniel H. Ludlow is well known to many Latter-day Saints because of his years of service at Brigham Young University. There he served as chairman of the Department of Bible and Modern Scripture, director of the Institute of Mormon Studies, director of the Institute of Book of Mormon projects, and dean of the College of Religious Instruction. He also directed BYU’s first Jerusalem Semester Program and its first Faculty Study Tour of the Lands of the Scriptures. In addition, he has done post-doctoral work at Hebrew University in Jerusalem. Consequently, the Ensign turned to him when decisions were being made to publish an issue on the Holy Land. He accepted the challenge of guest editor and energetically directed the formation of this present issue. Presently, Dr. Ludlow is director of instructional materials in the Church’s Department of Internal Communications, where he guides the production of the many manuals and other instructional materials used throughout the Church.
