Couldn't put it down! Aug 4, 2008
Carma Naylor's journey from devout Mormon to Christian was riveting. She carefully researched the Bible, The Book of Mormon, and Joseph Smith. But more importantly, she let God lead her in her quest for truth. I eagerly await vol. 2.
YES, YES, YES Mar 1, 2008
I read this book about 18 months ago. A gentleman gave me the book on a flight to Salt Lake City. I was raised in the Mormon church, but left around the age of 18. This book was a real page-turner for me, and I just kept saying to myself "yes, yes, yes," I totally relate and agree!
I couldn't put it down! Jan 13, 2008
Carma is articulate and compelling as she tells her account of the transformation of her heart and mind by the power of God. I fully can identify with her story! As a fifth generation mormon who found Jesus, I was not suprised by her struggle with her family, it was very encouraging to me. Naylor presents her viewpoints so lovingly. She is gentle, yet honest. Her research and attention to the details is profound. She has a very loving spirit, I have had the privilege of meeting her and her husband Charles. If you have questions about Mormonism, whether you are Mormon or Christian, this is a MUST read!
Amazing Apr 6, 2007
This is a deeply personal book about one woman's search for truth. It is not a guide on how to convert Mormon's to Christianity or a list of Mormon beleifs (altho it does contain both of these aspects.) This is one of the best books I have read in a long time and has caused my heart to swell with love for people of the Mormon faith. A must read!
For Anyone Seeking Truth Feb 13, 2007
This book should be read by any person desiring to know truth, regardless of their beliefs (or lack thereof), or their religious affiliation.
Carma Naylor's story of her personal search for truth was powerful and unbelievably moving. I cried tears of sorrow and pain, as well as tears of joy, as I followed her on her journey. Her journey was very long, and very difficult, as she realized she could no longer embrace the Mormon church that she had followed and believed her entire life. She described herself at one point as feeling as though she were being ripped in two - a dramatic, yet very accurate description of how a person would feel when their world and all they have held dear are turned upside-down.
Along with being an autobiography, Naylor's book provided me with an education on Mormon beliefs. It was so interesting to learn of the intricacies of the Mormon church, and of the sincere, loving people who are a part of it. I also received a wonderful education about Joseph Smith, his writings, and The Book of Mormon. In Naylor's quest for truth, she did an incredible amount of research into all aspects of Mormonism, including Greek word study. Very thorough! I will be able to use this book as a reference tool thanks to all of the Scripture she cited (IN context, no less!). Naylor left no stone unturned. She was not satisfied with speculation or hearsay. She had to dig in and find out for herself what the Bible and what The Book of Mormon really said, and what they really meant. She had to make the agonizing decision of whether she believed in the Bible as the true and infallible Word of God, or if she believed in Joseph Smith. She concluded that it had to be one or the other, and that it was impossible for the two to be followed side by side because of their contradictions.
This book has given me a love for Mormons, and has renewed my passion for knowing and seeking truth.
