Unveiling Grace Book Review

From the book's back cover: "From a rare insider's point of view, Unveiling Grace looks at how Latter-day Saints are 'wooing our country' with their religion, lifestyle, and culture. It is also a gripping story of how and entire family, deeply enmeshed in Mormonism, found their way out and what they can tell others about their lives as faithful Mormons.

I really enjoyed this book. When I saw this available for review, I immediately requested it. I was eager to learn more about Mormonism and this book did not disappoint. Sometimes nonfiction reads tend to be dry and difficult to finish, but Lynn Wilder has a wonderful writing style that is very easy to read. She describes everything and sets the scenes well. Her journey is a very interesting one at that. Her entire family was very dedicated to being a good Mormon family until her third child was on his Mormon mission and encountered a pastor that encouraged him to read the New Testament. Lynn takes us through her conversion to Mormonism, her "callings" in the Mormon church, employment at Brigham Young University, and her gradual conversion to Biblical Christianity. It is a well written, easy to understand book. My only criticism is her referral of the Holy Spirit as the Dancer of Grace. That is more of a personal dislike and nothing more. I highly recommend this read.

I received an advanced copy of Unveiling Grace from Booksneeze in exchange for my honest review.
