The Widtsoe Foundation is proud to announce that BYU Professor emeritus Robert L. Millet will direct an exciting new interfaith initiative for the Foundation. Its title is the New Testament Comparative Passages Project, and its aim is to help Christians from different traditions to better understand how and why others interpret their foundational books of scripture differently.

This project will bring together representatives from ten different Christian traditions for a series of public and private events over the next several years that will make connections between interpretations of specific passages in the New Testament and the effects those interpretations have on the religious lives of their communities. The Widtsoe Foundation will then work with the participants to produce a series of books that will make this important information available to the wider Christian community and anyone else interested in learning more about Christianity and the differences between Christian traditions. Plans are underway for to hold the project’s first events in early 2019.
