A Calvinist Compares Mormonism and Calvinism

The men who have led the LDS and RLDS churches have the dual and often contradictory roles of “prophet” and “president.” W. Grant McMurray, RLDS (now Community of Christ) president since 1996, has suggested that his denomination should think of itself as a “prophetic church” and not merely a “church with a prophet.” This paper will examine what he might mean, looking especially at the church’s struggle over the past fifty years with issues of discrimination.

Unsure if there is audio for this session. William D. Russell, Neal Chandler
