We’re absolutely thrilled to announce that Jonathan Stapley has agreed to join the Juvenile Instructor on a more permanent basis. He likely needs no introduction to regular readers, but for anyone unfamiliar, Jonathan is an independent researcher in Mormon history who has authored and co-authored prize-winning articles on Mormon women, ritual healing, and baptism. He is also widely known for his stellar blogging at By Common Consent, and has been an invaluable friend and reader of JI from the beginning (he designed and currently hosts the site, and regularly handles IT issues for us). Recently, J. has very graciously participated in two of the initial three entries in our “Responses” series.
J. will continue doing his thing at BCC, but will also begin posting here on a regular basis. Please join us in officially welcoming J. Stapley to the Juvenile Instructor.
