Robert L. Millet (born 30 December 1947) is a professor of ancient scripture and emeritus Dean of Religious Education at Brigham Young University (BYU) in Provo, Utah. Millet is a Latter-day Saint author and speaker with more than 60 published works on virtually all aspects of Mormonism. Millet was at the forefront of establishing evangelical-Mormon dialogue.[1][2]

He appears frequently as a commentator on BYUtv and in other visible roles at assorted media outlets as Manager of Outreach and Interfaith Relations for the LDS Church's Public Affairs Department. As a religion instructor, Millet has become known for his "milk before meat" approach of avoiding less popular LDS doctrines when discussing the church with non-Mormons.[citation needed]

Millet is considered one of the foremost scholars on the Joseph Smith Translation (also known as the Inspired Version) of the Bible.

Life[edit]

Millet was born and raised in Louisiana where his grandparents had joined the LDS Church. He received a BA and a master's in psychology from BYU, and a Ph.D. from Florida State University in biblical studies and contemporary theology. Millet has been a member of the BYU faculty since 1983.

Millet married Shauna Sizemore Millet at the Salt Lake Temple in 1971; they are the parents of six children.
