“A must read for any who have wondered
what Mormonism is all about.”

– Dr. John B. Wallace (Author) said,
“I highly recommend Carma Naylor’s magnificent two-volume book called A Mormon’s Unexpected Journey (Finding the Grace I Never Knew). It is a powerful and inspiring account of Sister Carma’s uncompromising search for truth after having dedicated forty years of faithful service to the LDS Church. It is, hands down, the best book ever written on this subject of coming out of Mormonism and into biblical Christianity- and I’ve read everything! But don’t stop at Volume 1, for as good as it is Volume 2 is even better.”
(Starting at the Finish Line, pg 196)

It has been said, “If you want to know the truth about the Mormons, then ask a Mormon what they believe.” Would it not be even wiser to ask one who had experienced being both a devout Mormon and a born-again Christian for a fair, honest comparison of the differences?
If you really want to comprehend the Mormon experience and understand a Mormon’s heart and thoughts, you don’t want to miss this compelling story written from a compassionate woman’s heart. Her love for Mormons, as well as her love for the truth and God’s Word are clearly evidenced in these two books that are thoroughly researched and richly packed with the Word of God.

Back in March 2011, Entertainment Journalist Mary Nichelson did a thorough review of A Mormon’s Unexpected Journey, Volume 2 at her website marysworld411.com. Here is an excerpt from that review:
“… In her book A Mormon’s Unexpected Journey Volume 1, Naylor conveys a classic tale of awakening with a gentle voice of authority. She does not define Mormonism and proceed to destroy the establishment; rather, she eloquently shares her personal story, reminding the reader often that her observations aren’t meant to cause division. She merely attempts to build on what’s right by correcting the inconsistancies and contradictions. It is very obvious, and touching, that she wants to prevent isolation from those still within Mormonism. In fact, she loves the members enough to want them to learn the truth as she has.
“… The greatest accomplishment of Volume 2 is the consistent theme that grace is not earned through benevolence. We are saturated in it according to our need. The comprehension of that isolated fact alone would be enough, yet, Naylor offers so much more. One could not assign A Mormon’s Unexpected Journey to one book genre. It is multi-purpose and multi-faceted. Naylor has taken a familiar concept-confrontation of her religious declaration-and has compiled a memoir and reference manual all in one. Just as I could not classify the book in one word or less, it would be short changing Naylor to imply A Mormon’s Unexpected Journey Volume 2 would appeal to Mormon’s only. It is for anyone disillusioned with religion.”
