Product Description

Synopsis

Scrutinising the experience of growing up Mormon, this personal narrative tells the story of one man's disillusionment with his faith and subsequent excommunication from the Church. This account reveals what is posited as inherent racism and sexism within the church and seeks to expose the controlling methods of indoctrination and the harsh process of excommunication. The basic tenets of the religion are explained, personal stories and analyses are shared, and church authorities are cited to support the claims of extreme gender and racial discrimination. From unknowing follower to angry rebel, and finally to a content, worldly man, this book recounts the experience of a survivor who feels the duty to explain his truth.

Good introduction giving overview of Mormon beliefs. In nearly 40yrs I've read a lot of books about religion and latterly have concentrated on personal accounts. The overwhelming impression, whether the author has remained within the religion or left it is that all the hierarchies are corrupt and abusive to varying degrees. There is always a need for them to claim to be the earthly channel of communication for their deity thus conferring on themselves absolute power and unchallengable authority. Inevitably in the hands of many this leads to abuse and corruption.
The major difference to me with this memoir (in conjunction with other reading) is that it exposes the LDS as being a cult without any reasonable claim to be a legitimate branch of Christianity. Without the money and power they have amassed they would have been denounced as such years ago. It is frankly horrifying that one of their number had a reasonable chance at the US presidency. As a non denominational Christian I can find no Christianity in Mormonism today or from its, very dubious, beginning.

This presents a tongue-in-cheek look at the mormon beliefs and practices. Cleverly written with detailed references throughout. A fascinating and informative read.

Tells the story of a missionary's two year tour in Hong Kong. Glad to read that he finally saw what nonsense mormonism is, and escaped from it, but does not provide great enough detail as to the inner workings of this cult.

9 of 13 people found the following review helpful By Mr. D. Rigg on 22 Feb 2010
Format: Paperback
I was rather shocked at the amount of negativity this book has been getting on the American site (Amazon.com) mostly from bitter Mormon's who are mad with the author. One going as far as to tell him he has "sexual problems" and "just wants to sin".

The book is very insightful, first hand experience of the Mormon way of a life, or "the Mormon show dome" as the author describes it. It's well wrote and almost every page is sourced and cited accurately for validity of his claims. There is a glossary in the back that explains words/terms Mormon's use that non-members may find confusing, this helps in keeping the book flowing and if the reader is confused about a term they can simply flick to the back for a great understanding.

I'd recommend this to anyone, theist and atheist alike. As an artiest myself, I found it a compelling read! It's wrote in a fashion that anyone can pick up and read.

GET IT!
