Book Review: Unveiling Grace

Unveiling Grace: The Story of How We Found Our Way Out of the Mormon ChurchUnveiling Grace: The Story of How We Found Our Way Out of the Mormon Church by Lynn K Wilder
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a fascinating look at the Mormon church and an inspiring account of how God worked in the lives of the Wilder family. Having been active members of the Mormon church for over 30 years (Lynn Wilder was even a professor at Brigham Young University), it took many events, big and small, to open their eyes to the true Gospel. One of the Wilder sons took it upon himself to actually read through the New Testament, and, one by one, the other members of the family followed, noting all the inconsistencies between the Bible and the Mormon scriptures, and subsequently leaving all that they knew to follow the Biblical Jesus. I am encouraged by their story to spend more time in the Bible, because it is "living and active." A very helpful appendix notes many of the contradictions between Mormon doctrine and Christianity.

* I received a free egalley of this book from the publisher, through NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review.
