Description

(From back cover.)

Journey from Mormonism has special value in expressing the experiences of a thoughtful young Mormon girl, wife, and mother Some books compare the basic doctrine, others describe conversion experiences. But few combine their experiences with relevant research in LDS sources as well as this. I recommend this for the LDS and Christians who need an experience-related introduction to critical research on LDS history, doctrine and practice.
