By December 29, 2015

If you’re like me, you’re currently prepping for a wild New Year’s party. (In my case, it’s cozying up with a handful of books and perhaps some orange juice.) However, you hopefully also have time to catch up with the 10 most-read JI posts from the last year. Below are the ten posts that received the most viewers over the last 12 months, and I’m sure they are worthy of another read.

If there are other posts that stood out to you, please share them in the comments bellow.

Happy holidays from JI, and thanks for sticking with us for another year!

  3. Thanks, as always, for the run-down, Ben. Here’s a few other of my favorite posts from this year:

    Edje’s always awesome posts on graphic and literary images of Mormons. I especially liked his two-part series on Mormon Thugs (part I and part II).

    The Scholarly Inquiry interview with Ignacio Garcia about his newly-published memoir, Chicano While Mormon (part I and part II).

    Your own annual rundown of noteworthy books and articles, which remains one of my favorite posts each and every year.

    Janiece’s very thoughtful review of Mormon Feminism: Essential Writings.

    I know you already highlighted the roundtable on RSR, but I especially liked Bushman’s candid and generous response.

    And finally, if it’s not too presumptuous, I really liked researching and writing this post on Lord Macaulay’s quest to find a 1st edition Book of Mormon.
