Leaving the Saints
Leaving the Saints How I Lost the Mormons and Found My Faith By Beck, Martha Nibley Book - 2005

A disturbing account of how accepted truths in a modern church simply don't hold up to scrutiny. Of note is how the Mormon Church took a hit in credibility when the parchment thought to have been the source for the Pearl of Great Price turned out to actually be the Book of the Dead. The author, practically born into Mormon royalty, also relives the horrors of being raped by her father as young as age five, and to also learn her father faked most of his sources in his commentaries about Mormon scholarship, which eventually led to Martha Beck quitting the LDS church (as did her husband). Whether one regards Mormonism to be a cult or not, Beck's self-account is a reminder one shouldn't always things at face value.
