She reveals the many temple rituals she and her husband undertook and some of the unusual practices she accepts without question. Throughout her life as a Mormon she writes of how the Holy Spirit continued to guide her and protect her. She relates how through the power of prayer she was able to have four healthy children, after having multiple miscarriages. The Holy Spirit, through strange dreams and events, prompts her to return to school to earn a doctorate degree, and later accept a position as a professor at the prestigious Mormon owned university. The writing of her story is vivid. I grew to know and understand the writer and her family, and empathized as she relates her struggles. The way in which God reveals the truth to her and her family is amazing, and makes reading this book worthwhile. This book has the potential to change the life of any Mormon who has the strength to read it. For Christians, this book provides a practical guide to understanding what the Mormon religion teaches, and the methods it uses to convert and retain members.Read more ›
As I began Lynn's book, I was skeptical of where it might go or what her message might be. Many books about Mormonism tend to land very heavily in the apologetics side of the scale, leaving the reader with a negative, almost sterile feeling in their heart about the way people are saved from Mormonism. In fact, after reading most books concerning Mormonism, all you want to do is just stay away from its deception at all costs! Lynn however has been able to skillfully reveal apologetic differences between Mormonism and Christianity by weaving what she learned into her story of salvation.Read more ›
I stopped short of giving the book five stars for a few reasons that will be clear to anyone who reads the entire book: 1) It belabors certain points and it should be obvious what those are. 2) There is a fair amount of redundancy of concepts (Mormon Jesus, false religion, etc). 3) Anyone familiar with Mormon culture-isms AND modern Protestant congregation culture-isms will note that Mormons have not cornered the market in peculiar cultural norms and cliché behavior. Visit the campus of a typical Bible college, Christian University or megachurch and be witness to some very cliché AND cliquish behavior. For example, I was literally escorted, by the arm, out of a very prominent Baptist Church in Birmingham, AL. The associate pastor and the security staffer intercepted me on my way to find a seat. Why? Because I was "at the wrong church." You see, that body of believers were all white and I was (am), uh....black. I didn't fit their established demographic profile. So I would simply urge caution when negatively characterizing one group's cultural failings, as Dr. Wilder has done, against what is being presented as the model. In the case of this book an insular Mormon culture with all of it's Wasatch Front-isms VS Christ-led mainstream Christianity.Read more ›
