EX-MORMONS, INACTIVE MORMONS

A Listmania! list by Steven H Propp (Sacramento, CA USA)
(TOP 50 REVIEWER)   
The list author says: "While the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is one of the fastest-growing religious organizations in the world, there are also those who have left it---whether voluntarily, through excommunication, or simply by no longer participating.

Here are some of their stories, and/or books they have written since leaving the LDS Church. (NOTE: I am not including persons who have left the various polygamist "fundamentalist" cults, as those groups are not part of Utah or Missouri/RLDS Church; see my list of "Modern Mormon Polygamy" for books about those groups.)

WARNING: While most of these books are by persons who are now evangelical Christians, some (e.g., Steven Fales) are not; in other words, they may not be "G-rated.""
