This is volume 35 of Interpreter: A Journal of Latter-day Saint Faith and Scholarship published by The Interpreter Foundation. It contains the complete text of Labor Dilgently to Write: The Ancient Making of a Modern Scripture by Brant A. Gardner.
Labor Diligently to Write: The Ancient Making of a Modern Scripture is being presented in serialized form as an aid to help readers prepare for the 2020 Come Follow Me course of study. It is about a very specific aspect of two different men. Nephi conceived writing Nephite history. Mormon conceived turning that history into a message to a future generation. Each wrote with purpose and elaborated that purpose by recounting stories. Knowing that each man used a chronology of events as the backbone structuring his intent, how did they select and then write the stories so Nephite history served their larger intent?
