Radiant illuminates the human experience by the light of the Restoration. We publish a range of original writing: essays; book, film, and art criticism; interviews; dispatches; profiles; poetry; miracles; sermons, and more. 

The Restoration began with a sincere question and the reception of divine truth. Radiant embraces that hunger for new light with the conviction that our Heavenly Parents always desire to reveal more to their children. 

Because truth is often both stranger and subtler than we imagine, we follow Jacob’s example of wrestling with complexity, mystery, and eternity. For that reason, Radiant welcomes new voices and ideas that transcend and expand familiar boundaries—we seek after the true, the good, and the beautiful wherever they are found. 

Our aim is to cultivate within individuals and communities the more abundant life that is found in Christ through writing that is leavened with faith, brightened by hope, and deepened through charity. 

Finally, we affirm the revelation Joseph Smith received May 9, 1831: That which is of God is light; and he that receiveth light, and continueth in God, receiveth more light; and that light groweth brighter and brighter until the perfect day.

Radiant is a publication of the Faith Matters Foundation launching in Fall 2022. We will publish weekly through our newsletter as well as in an annual print issue.
