Editor's Note

Brian Birch


in 2008, the editorial board of Element issued a call for student submissions with the offer of modest awards for winning articles. The primary objective of the project has been to promote the academic study of Mormon theology and philosophy among the younger generation of scholars. We were delighted with the quality of submissions and are pleased to publish this issue as a collection of exemplary student work. All submissions were blind reviewed by the sMPt Executive Committee.

The winning article was deidre Green’s “Got Compassion: A Critique of Blake ostler’s Theory of Atonement.” Ms. Green is a doctoral student at Claremont Graduate University in the Women’s studies in religion program. she received her Master of Arts in religion at Yale divinity school 2007 and is pursuing research in feminist theology and related areas. Congratulations are due to all of the student contributors for their outstanding work.
