The JWHA Journal

Our journal is published twice a year. There are opportunities for scholars, young and old, professional and armchair, to contribute their ideas, essays, and papers.

Specific focus of interest for the journal is Community of Christ history and culture, as well as the “divergent paths” of the movement. The editorial board welcomes your contributions.

John Whitmer Books

In 2005, the John Whitmer Historical Association launched a new publishing imprint, John Whitmer Books.

In the years following, John Whitmer Books has built a catalog of important titles in the history of the Restoration Movement, with particular emphasis on the Early Church, the RLDS/Community of Christ and the Eastern branches of the movement.
