Finding the Grace
I Never Knew
A Mormon’s Unexpected Journey is a riveting testimony of a woman’s search for truth when her strong religious convictions were reversed by God in a surprising way. This memoir on Mormonism will help you understand the powerful, spiritual experiences behind a Mormon’s testimony.
This two-volume memoir is also a concise theological treatise that walks you through the Mormon doctrines step-by-step and challenges each one with the truth of Scripture.
Covering more than just Mormonism. Although Carma’s focus is Mormonism, her books go far beyond the scope of the LDS experience. This memoir will help you to know that salvation is by grace through faith in Jesus Christ, rather than in religious works and ordinances.
Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life (John 14:6), and not just part of the way, truth, and life. To add religious ritual, ordinances, or human effort to Christ’s all-sufficient sacrifice for us, is to diminish Him and insult the spirit of grace that He freely offers to us. These books follow Carma’s journey, as she really learns this life-changing truth.
Her Spiritual Journey
Carma’s initial quest was to save her dear friend from what she considered the deceptions of the Jehovah’s Witnesses and to show her, from the Bible, that the LDS church was the one and only true church. While trying to prove from the Bible that Mormonism was true and to save her friend, Carma’s eyes were opened to three startling truths:
- The Bible truths she had been taught as part of the unique LDS doctrines were actually Bible verses taken out-of-context.
- Unique LDS doctrines were not only absent in the Bible, but they contradicted the Bible.
- These unique LDS doctrines came from the men she believed were the prophets of God, so either the LDS prophets were wrong or the Bible was.
All of this raised more questions in Carma’s mind. Surely, the LDS prophets of God could not contradict God’s Word in the Bible. Was the Bible that incomplete and in error? Was she to trust the Bible or the leaders of the LDS church as her authority for truth? A Mormon’s Unexpected Journey follows her quest for answers.
Truth in Love
These fascinating books on Mormonism not only contrast the LDS faith with the true gospel of Jesus Christ, but they will help the reader to understand the powerful spiritual experiences behind a Mormon’s testimony.
There are many books about Mormon doctrines, but few covering the depth of doctrine and LDS experience as this memoir. The truth is examined both masterfully and lovingly.
For those Seeking Answers
If you are burdened by trying to make yourself acceptable to God through righteous efforts and you want to experience the life-changing freedom of His grace, you need these books.
A Mormon’s Unexpected Journey isn’t about freedom to sin, but freedom from the curses of sin that we are all under and in bondage to. Learn about the freedom to live for Jesus, as the Holy Spirit fills our heart with love for Him and a desire to make Him the Lord and Master of our lives.
