From a rare insiders 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.
The Seeking DiscipleLexington, SCAge: 35-44Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5A Story To Stir You To Prayer and EvangelismJuly 9, 2014The Seeking DiscipleLexington, SCAge: 35-44Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I have witnessed to many Mormons. When I was first saved back in 1992, I was zealous to reach my LDS friends with the gospel. I would follow the Mormon missionaries around and try to talk to them about Christ. My heart longed to see them saved. I never witnessed with my own eyes a Mormon come to faith in Christ. I pray that the seeds I planted have produced salvation (1 Corinthians 3:5-9).
In this story, Lynn Wilder tells the powerful story of her own "conversion" to Mormonism from nominal Christianity to finally truly repenting and embracing the true Jesus. She went from an Indiana family to a BYU professor to a born again disciple of Jesus. While I don't want to give away too much of her story, her son Micah was saved while on his own Mormon mission in Florida. His conversion to Christ of the Bible shook her entire foundation and her family. As she refers to the Lord as "the Dancer of grace," God truly was reaching out to the Wilder family with His grace and mercy.
I praise God for this book. I pray that it is used to help true disciples see our efforts for Christ are not in vein. God is the one who saves (Jonah 2:9; John 6:44) and He saves people by His grace (Ephesians 2:8-9). Along the way, while reading this book, you'll learn much about Mormonism and about what it means to truly know Christ Jesus as Lord and be saved. I highly recommend this book.
Army MomAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Outstanding BookMay 29, 2014Army MomAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 5Lynn Wilder begins her story in 1977 when Mormon missionaries arrival at their home. Her husband Michael invites them back and both he and Lynn begin to believe what they are being told, because it "sounded reasonable" and not having a solid biblical foundation they were easily swayed.
So begins their decent in the secret world of the Latter Day Saints.
Step by step the family's story is laid bare. She recounts very personal experiences, from their baptism in the church, to the many miscarriages she experienced to the terrifying nightmares that their daughter Katie suffered most of her life.
Throughout her story, Lynn includes how God was reveling Himself to her even though her eyes were closed to the real truth. Little by little, God began to crack the wall that had caged her mind for so long. The first major crack came when their son Micah who on a Mormon missionary trip in Florida, came to understand the real Jesus and salvation through the cross and encourages his parents to read the New Testament apart from the book of Mormon. As she begins to compare what she has been taught and what the Bible teaches, God begins to lift the veil that has shrouded her mind for thirty years.
As you read you can see God's bigger picture for this family and how he orchestrated events in this family's life's. There were times while reading I was moved to tears reading about Lynn's passion for the Lord. There were also some very funny moments that made me laugh out loud.
Biographies are not my first choice for reading material. This one however, is by far one of the better written. Lynn Wilder writes a spellbinding account that keeps the reader turning the page. I believe anyone looking for insight into what a Mormon believes or maybe has someone on the fringes, this could be a useful tool. It cut's no corners, or attempt to justify as some might do. The family puts it all out there. The good, the bad and the ugly.
The author also includes some great material in the back. A glossary of Mormon terms, as well as what they believe and how it contradicts what the Bible teaches. Very useful items. I would not hesitate to recommend this book.

This book gives hope as to how God works in His way and it is not our job to change hearts. We pray and God moves.

The author is very thorough and tells it like it is. We are getting an inside account of the false teachings of Mormanism. The book towards the end show the wonders of Christ and the deceptions of the Mormon teachings and how they directly go against the Bible. I would reccomend this to anyone who wants to know the truth. I have gotten a couple copies and have loaned them out so that the secrets of that organized religion can be exposed.
