Joseph Smith, Jr.

This chapter turns to the subject of what Joseph Smith himself had to say about Mormonism's relationship to other religions, and ways of accommodating religious pluralism. It further traces the trajectories of Mormon thought on Eastern religious traditions, following the death of Smith, during the balance of the 19th century. Rather than fitting neatly into conventional religious studies paradigms, the chapter argues that the Latter-day Saints warrant their own categorization as restoration inclusivists.

Keywords:   Mormonism, Asian religions, religious pluralism, Buddhism, Hinduism, inclusivism, exclusivism, Latter-day Saints
