Bethany House Out of Mormonism, revised edition: A Woman's True Story

Although she was raised in a Christian home, Judy and her husband Jim Robertson felt a spiritual void in their lives and decided to join the Mormon church. They were members for several years and held leadership positions. However, Judy began to discover the Jesus of the Bible and found Him different from the Mormon church's teachings. In Out of Mormonism she shares her journey of leaving the LDS church and founding Concerned Christians, an outreach ministry to Mormons.

I found Judy Robertson's story compelling and accurate about the Mormon belief system. As a former Mormon it is nice to read about others that had a similar experience and then find faith in Jesus. This edition was wonderful because of the new testimonies included in the back of the book. Each one tells their story not attacking but simply sharing their personal experience.

Out of Mormonism grabbed me from the moment I laid eyes on it. Simply curious about the Mormon religion and how it compares to Christianity, I dove into Robertson's story and came out thoroughly enlightened. Having been around very few Mormons in my lifetime, I had no idea the far-reaching power of the Mormon cult.
In addition to Robertson's personal story, I found the glossary at the end of the book to be extremely helpful. It explains many details of the Mormon church, as well as the terms the religion uses that are the same as Christianity's yet mean different things (for instance, the definition of Jesus).
I wouldn't necessarily recommend this book if you are looking for some sort of guide to Mormonism or something to explicitly detail the Mormon religion. Out of Mormonism is mostly a memoir. That said, if you're curious about a Mormon woman's life, this book is for you. Robertson's story not only shows the pitfalls of Mormonism but also encourages readers to really know what they believe in. At the close of the book, Robertson shares her and her husband's start as speakers about the Mormon religion and later founders of Concerned Christians, an organization that's goal is to witness to Mormons.
Out of Mormonism is an interesting book, and Robertson's honest look at her choices is refreshing and encouraging. I can't see someone reading it and not being changed at least a little by her story.
