But when she was hired to teach at Brigham Young University, Martha was troubled by the way the Churchâs elders silenced dissidents and masked truths that contradicted its published beliefs. Most troubling of all, she was forced to face her history of sexual abuse by one of the Churchâs most prominent authorities. The New York Times bestseller Leaving the Saints chronicles Marthaâs decision to sever her relationship with the faith that had cradled her for so long and to confront and forgive the person who betrayed her so deeply.
Leaving the Saints offers a rare glimpse inside one of the worldâs most secretive religions while telling a profoundly moving story of personal courage, survival, and the transformative power of spirituality.
About: The author describes growing up within the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, her public criticism of the church, and her difficult decision to leave the Mormon church to pursue her own search for spirituality.
