Part memoir, part analytical work, this treatise details Robert Bridgstock's life as an active Mormon, his struggles with his faith, his submerging of such doubts for the sake of keeping peace with his devout family, and his eventual departure from the Church due to the abuse he suffered. After joining the Mormon Church at the age of 18, Bridgstock went on to become the youngest Mormon bishop in England and remained active in the Church for more than four decades, serving it in many capacities and deeply studying Mormon scripture and history. But after having and voicing doubts about Mormonism, and because Church authorities and scripture never delivered satisfactory answers to his questions, he left the Church and reunced the religion. An enthralling read from a leading figure within the Church, this account provides a unique, day-to-day look into Mormon life.
Robert Bridgstock served as the youngest Mormon bishop in England before leaving the Church after the death of his wife. This is his first book.
