Inclusivism about Salvation

Inclusivism about Salvation

(p.72) 5 Inclusivism about Salvation
On Religious Diversity

Robert McKim

Oxford University Press

Various versions of inclusivism about salvation, or salvific inclusivism, are considered. All versions propose that religious outsiders, which is to say outsiders to one's religious tradition, may achieve salvation but add that, in one way or another, outsiders are not as well situated with respect to salvation as insiders. Versions that involve a single salvific route are distinguished from versions that involve multiple salvific routes. The possibility that another tradition can make a contribution to the achievement of salvation, while not itself constituting a way to salvation, is considered. Proposals from Ibn al-‘Arabi, C. S. Lewis, Clark H. Pinnock, and from Dominus Iesus, a recent Catholic statement on the salvation of outsiders, are discussed.

Keywords:   inclusivism about salvation, salvific inclusivism, single salvific route, multiple salvific routes, Ibn al-‘Arabi, C. S. Lewis, Clark H. Pinnock, Dominus Iesus
