Church News: About the cover

With Old Jerusalem in the background, Jerold D. Ottley leads Tabernacle Choir at BYU Jerusalem Center in one of six concerts it performed while on tour to Israel Dec. 26-Jan. 6.

Critics as well as audiences received the choir with enthusiasm and praise during the tour. At each performance, the audiences applauded unusually long and enthusiastically. One critic compared the choir to a charming bud which opens into a spectacular flower.
