Unveiling Grace Unravels Many Questions About The LDS Belief's

As a member of The Church of Jesus Christ-The Restored Gospel I made every effort to receive a copy of the book by Lynn K. Wilder "Unveiling Grace".  I got the wonderful opportunity as a member of Booksneeze.  Since I was a young person many of my acquaintances assumed I was
a member of that Mormon church and I needed Unveiling Grace  to understand more fully about the LDS church.  Outside of reading The Book of Mormon our similarities end there.  Ms. Wilder's book tells of her own experiences within the LDS community along with her family's.  There are multiple books that they use together which outline their Faith, some of which are The Pearl of Great Price and The Doctrine and Covenants.  Having read the Book of Mormon, countless times, I found it ironic that their subsequent books go completely against what the Book of Mormon states.  I never heard of the 'baptism of the dead' until I read this book among many of their other practices.  Because of my upbringing I was disturbed by many of the LDS ordinances.  I am grateful for the book in that I did learn a lot which I otherwise would not have known.  I am happy that the author was able to find the courage to go against the grain and walk out of this situation.  This book has further enhanced my own faith and understanding of the Book of Mormon.
