He is a Richard L. Evans Fellow of the Brigham Young University Office of Religious Outreach and an organizer and participant for the Jewish - Latter-day Saint academic dialogue (learn more here: https://ro.byu.edu/jewish-lds-academic-dialogue) or read the latest piece written for the Religious Education Review (Fall 2017).
