The Neal Maxwell Institute for Religious Scholarship

Email Email Print

When PBS sent me off to do a series on faith in America in the mid-1990s, it was my great fortune to meet, interview and become friends with Elder Neal Maxwell, an Apostle of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Although Elder Maxwell and I could never agree on theology, we became good friends, and until his death in 2004, would stay in touch via the phone and too rare visits, discussing politics and the country’s various troubles/accomplishments. He was a great gentleman of extraordinary intellect and good humor.

BYU announced today that it is naming its widely respected Institute for the Study and Preservation of Ancient Religious Texts as the Neal A. Maxwell Institute for Religious Scholarship.

For an example of the work of the Maxwell Institute, see this press release of one its joint programs with the Library of Congress. This is a wonderful tribute to a great American. The Institute’s home page (as yet not updated) is here.
