Description

In the eyes of their church they are lost sheep. They have fond memories of the church, but they have reasons for leaving—which James Ure discovers in these remarkable interviews with eighteen high profile Mormons. The surprising and revealing commentaries are as varied as the people themselves.

Politics of gender and politics in general, guilt over unachievable perfection, and an inability to accept the basic tenets of Mormonism are among the thoughtful, often touching expressions by people who left active Mormonism to find their own personal path to salvation and meaning in life.

It is Ure's hope that this work will help "active" Mormon neighbors better understand their "wayward" friends. (from back cover)
