Covenantal Pluralism in Mormonism and Islam

Alternatives to the Binary Logic of Apostasy

(p.280) 12 Covenantal Pluralism in Mormonism and Islam
Standing Apart

David D. Peck

Oxford University Press

This chapter turns to Islam for possible alternative models to the LDS binary logic of apostasy and restoration. Using the theology of religions as a frame, it outlines the conception of covenantal pluralism in the Qur’an and suggests that Mormonism has the potential for an equally charitable treatment of other faiths in the past and present. It traces similarities between the Qur’an and Mormonism’s conception of humanity as the universal community of God’s children who are bound to God by various covenants and will be judged by God based on the contexts of these covenants.

Keywords:   Islam, Qur’an, theology of religions, interfaith dialogue, intrafaith dialogue, covenant, religious pluralism
