Mouw in the area of interfaith dialogue was featured in a July 27, 2012, article in the Deseret News titled “An Interreligious Pioneer: Evangelical Seminary President Builds Bridges through ‘Convicted Civility.’”In the article, writer Max Perry Mueller highlights Dr. Mouw’s leadership in initiating civil dialogue with other faith communities—including Muslims, Jews, and Mormons—and seeking to understand their beliefs. Mouw will leave a significant legacy in this work as he retires from the presidency next year, writes Mueller.Mueller quotes Robert Millet, professor at Brigham Young University, claiming that Mouw “will be remembered as one of the greatest men in the Christian world during the 20th and 21st centuries … because of his theological commitment to ‘convicted civility,’ the duty to truly get to know people of other faiths.”Says Harvard Divinity School Dean David Hempton: “Mouw is a pioneer. He’s helped chart a path for people with deep faith convictions to take those of other faiths seriously, critically, but with compassion and empathy.”“Mouw is well known for his willingness to go beyond known horizons, to find spiritual inspiration in other faith traditions, and has encouraged his fellow evangelicals, including the students at Fuller, to follow his lead,” writes Mueller.For more information, visit www.fuller.edu.
