If Jesus Christ is “the way, the truth, and the life,” and no one can receive salvation except through Him, what happens to those who die without having heard of Him? What is the destiny of the “unevangelized”? The revelations of Joseph Smith articulate an impressive response to this question, a question which has confronted Christian thinkers for centuries.

In this episode of FAIR Conversations, Professor John E. Sanders joins host Blair Hodges to discuss how various Christians have sought to resolve this problem over time. Sanders is an American Christian theologian with an Evangelical background. He currently serves as chair of religious studies at Hendrix College in Arkansas. He is the author of No Other Name: The Destiny of the Unevangelized.

Sanders has provided a useful chart outlining the individuals and positions discussed in this podcast here.
