Baylor professor among nation’s leaders on faith-based initiatives
Dr. Byron Johnson, co-director of Baylor’s Institute for Studies of Religion (ISR), helped President George W. Bush with the creation of the White House Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives in 2001, and since then Johnson has been among the leaders in studying whether faith-based initiatives really work.
Shortly after returning from speaking at a White House-hosted national conference on the subject last month, Johnson sat down for a Q&A with the Waco Tribune-Herald about how exactly such projects work, and it really cleared up a lot of things for me on the issue. It’s good to see Baylor professors putting their faith into action in such a practical and unique way.
Sic ’em, Dr. Johnson and ISR!
