PROVO — Presenters from 10 different faiths will provide perspectives on life after death in a free, three-day conference beginning Thursday night at BYU's Joseph Smith Building Auditorium.

"Beyond the Grave: Christian Interfaith Perspectives" is sponsored by the BYU Office of Religious Outreach. The event will include 30-minute presentations about the views of Mormons, Seventh-Day Adventists, Catholics, Methodists, Anglicans and more.

BYU's dean of religious education, Brent Top, will give the first presentation at 6 p.m. on Thursday, "The Near-Death Experience: Why Latter-day Saints Are So Interested." He will be followed by Harvard University Episcopalian pastor and chaplain Luther Zeigler and Richard J. Mouw, an evangelical professor of faith and public life at Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, Calif.

The event continues from 6 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. on Friday and 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday. The concluding presentation at noon on Saturday will be given by Robert Millet, professor emeritus of ancient scripture at BYU, who will speak Saturday on “Christ’s Descent into Hell: A Latter-day Saint Perspective."
