Cultural Encounters: A Journal For The Theology Of Culture Volume 11 Number 1 (Winter 2015) - Page 77

VOLUME 11, NUMBER 1 A JOURNAL FOR THE THEOLOGY OF CULTURE My brief review cannot do justice to every part of Webb’s multifaceted project. It is a stimulating metaphysical and interreligious exploration of Mormon history, teaching, and contemporary theology. While I certainly disagree with Webb at various turns, I appreciate his bold venture to improve dialogue and understanding between Latter-day Saints and traditional forms of Christianity. While Webb is especially hopeful that Roman Catholics and Mormons can build bridges of mutual understanding and appreciation, there is something here for all of us to learn. Evangelicals, especially of the Calvinist variety, may struggle at times over Webb’s claims, longing for greater charity toward certain doctrines. Nonetheless, it is important that we approach Mormonism with a charitable, non-confrontational spirit and a discerning mind. We can look for points of commonality and acknowledge differences in the pursuit of truth and the common good. 76
