In his bibliography, "Mormon Non-English Scriptures, Hymnals, & Periodicals, 1830-1986," L. R. Jacobs writes, "Initial translation commenced by Dr. Z. Abdel-Malek of the University of Utah Feb. 1971. After three years it was decided that Dr. Abdel-Malek would finish the first half of the book and Sami A. Hanna would translate the final half which was completed in 1975. From late 1975 to 1978 Dil Parkinson and John Sharp made final revisions."
