Publisher's Summary

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 an entire family, deeply enmeshed in Mormonism, found their way out and what they can tell others about their lives as faithful Mormons.

KINDRED SPIRIT

Where does Unveiling Grace rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

4

What other book might you compare Unveiling Grace to and why?

No comparison really.

Which scene was your favorite?

The discussion of what it's like to live in Happy Valley ran very true to my experience.

Any additional comments?

At first, I found it uncanny that the author's experience as a Mormon woman, raising a Mormon family in Utah, was so like my own - even in the details. But then I realized: she is describing every Mormon woman who eventually comes to think outside the conditioned box. Her writing is easy and enjoyable, and as a narrator she is very good, too.

The Truth

My dad’s side of the family are majority Morman. My parents are not very religious and never pushed or encouraged my siblings and I one way or the other. I became a Christian at 13 years old, attended a Christian University, and continue to walk with the Lord. This book has created such amazing understanding and knowledge for future conversation with Morman family members. Such a blessing to read.

Interesting perspective

I am a lifetime member of the Mormon church but became disillusioned many years ago and never attend church now. Several doctrinal issues have plagued me as they did with the author. It was nice to hear my own thought and opinions voiced from someone else who has way more education than I do. I enjoyed reading (listening) to this book.

The narration was way too fast, like she was trying to break a speed reading record. I had to rewind frequently to listen to sections again

Very Enlightening...

I love her story. It’s quite entertaining and keeps my attention, but most of all i love this book because before i read it, i thought Mormonism and Christianity were basically the same. Boy was i wrong! I recommend this book mostly to my fellow Christian brothers and sisters, as it is quite useful to become more understanding towards mormons, and useful to gain the knowledge of the gospel, necessary to show any mormons, why what we (Christians) believe, is different from what they Mormons believe. Get. This. Book!

Informative

This book was well written and easy to listen to.

I thought the author did an excellent job in relaying their personal journey, but also providing details on how the Mormon church is out of sync with true Christianity. I would highly recommend the book for anyone who is interested in investigating Mormonism.

This family is amazing

The Wilder family story has true insight of what it is like to be a faithful Mormon living in Utah. Lynn Wilder's new love for Jesus is truly an inspiration.

Enlightening information

Where does Unveiling Grace rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This book was a remarkable book that was very well written and kept my attention through out the entire book. the personal testimony of the author was more a story form as well as educational.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Unveiling Grace?

When Mica came back after his mission and faced the church board.

Have you listened to any of Julie Lyles Carr’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I don't think, but her performance was very good and kept my attention throughout the entire book.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The moments between Lynn and Mica.

Any additional comments?

Recommend this book highly for those seeking to understand Mormonism. This is particularly good if you thought that Mormons understood Grace and the truth of their beliefs that they have to work and live by the Mormon guidelines in order to enter into eternity and become gods. They do not believe that the Grace of God and Jesus dying paid the entire price for our salvation.

The Lord Jesus Christ of the Bible revealed Himself to a devout Morman family

This is one of the best books I have read about what Mormans really believe. If you are LDS and have questions, read this book, and read the Bible. Ask Him to show himself to you.

helpful

A compelling read. The ending appendices collect a lot of specific disagreements and additional resources. The story gives a lot of insight to those seeking to help Mormon friends and relatives. I often challenge my Mormon friends with the words from my seminary teacher: "truth isn't threatened by investigation."

Powerful

This has encouraged me all the more to pray for my Mormon friends. It very clearly describes the differences between Mormonism and Biblical Christianity. What a testimony to Gods abundant grace! Well written and powerful.
