What We Believe

Brad Wilcox and John Bytheway are having just too much fun at BYU's Campus Education Week.

Wilcox channels a little bit of Leo Buscaglia with hugs, love and humor. Bytheway is also little bit like a stand-up comedian. Both have attitude, smiles and testimony.

And youths crowded into the Smith Field House at BYU loved it.

Teens lined up before the tag-team talk to get autographs and hug Wilcox. Bytheway slipped in at the last second and the show began.

Their topic was the Book of Mormon — the signature scripture of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Back and forth they went with anecdotes, insights with some good-natured heckling of each other.

Wilcox, an author and retired Seminary teacher, gave an animated reenactment of a typical conversation he has had with people who say that Mormons are not Christian.

"You're not Christian."

"Yes, of course I am Christian. I'm Christian. The name of the church is The Church of JESUS CHRIST."
