Excellent book - I love hearing testimonies of why people choose Christianity.

The title of this book is deceptive. It is a book about why people who once belonged to the Mormon faith chose to join the traditional Christian church instead. Their reasons for leaving Mormonism is given almost no attention except to say they did so to become Christian, rejecting the Mormon claim that Mormons are Christian. In fact the author points out early on she specifically excluded from inclusion the stories of anyone who left Mormonism for any reason other than to join the traditional Christian faith. So, if you are looking for some insight into why people leave the Mormon faith, you will be greatly disappointed with this book as was I. It is nothing more than another book proselytizing the merits of traditional bible thumping practitioners of Christianity.
