The John A. Widtsoe Foundation and the Neal A. Maxwell Institute for Religious Scholarship at BYU are proud to announce a collaborative series of live virtual discussions entitled “Book of Mormon Conversations.” In this series of live events, a member of The John A. Widtsoe Foundation will interview authors of the Maxwell Institute’s The Book of Mormon: brief theological introductions series.
In its brief theological introductions, the Maxwell Institute offers fresh and inspiring examinations of Latter-day Saint scripture using the lenses of history, theology, philosophy, literary studies, and above all, faith in Jesus Christ. Details at mi.byu.edu/brief.
The John A. Widtsoe Foundation’s key mission is to promote interfaith conversations, relationships and appreciation. We hope that by joining the Maxwell Institute in this project, we can help members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, as well as members of other faiths, see how principles taught in the Book of Mormon impact our spiritual, civic, and social lives.
We’re thrilled to discuss these important topics and invite all to join in the virtual conversation and Q&A . The first event will feature Maxwell Institute executive director Dr. J. Spencer Fluhman and associate director Dr. Philip Barlow, who together serve as general editors of the brief theological introductions series. The conversation will be moderated by The John A. Widtsoe Foundation President, Dr. Larry L. Eastland.
