Dr. Holzapfel attended BYU, Hebrew Union College, and the University of California, Irvine (BA, MA, and PhD), emphasizing ancient history, and American history. He married Jeni Broberg in 1978 and they are parents of five children and one grandson. Dr. Holzapfel came to BYU as an assistant professor in 1993, teaching in the Honors, Church History, Ancient Scripture, and History departments. He taught at the BYU Jerusalem Center from 1997 through 1998.

He currently serves as the publications director of the Religious Studies Center (RSC) and as the editor of the Religious Educator and the BYU Religious Education Review magazine, both publications of the RSC.

Dr. Holzapfel’s primary responsibility is as a faculty member, with his teaching, research, and other long-term academic responsibilities taking precedence over his assignment as the publications director of the RSC. However, Dr. Holzapfel has oversight on all aspects of the RSC including solicitation of articles and manuscripts, submissions, and reviewing each submission, assigns reviewers, and communicates with authors on the status of projects before any editorial work begins.

  1. This is the best blog I have ever seen! A-1! It’s a Classic! Penguin Classics should publish it. The best.

  2. I love what you’re doing with blogging at BYU. I hope that more people will do the same. One minor suggestion. You should use permalinks on this blog and you’ll do better getting traffic from search engines. One minor change that can help quite a bit.

    Keep up the great work.

  3. Great blog, but even better is that you are actively encouraging young people to utilize the internet to share their thoughts and feelings on gospel subjects as a class assignment. Brilliant!
