But first, a word from ... Today's Sponsor
It is a fast paced journey through the developmental years of a child's mind, a child who is forced to believe that fantasies are real.

Here's the set-up:
In a deep torch lit cavern, beneath the Mormon temple, hundreds of barefoot, white clad youths wait in line to be plunged beneath the water in a bronze tank that rests on the backs of twelve gigantic bronze oxen. Each time they are lowered backwards into the water, a member of the Mormon priesthood evokes the name of a person who is dead.

My Mormon Life is the story of a boy, raised in the Mormon faith, who examines the beliefs of the church and comes to realize that what he is being taught by the church is not consistent with what seems to be the real world. In this process he takes the reader on the grand tour of Mormon beliefs, from baptism of the dead, to polygamy and Mormon underwear, survival food, and the separate policy toward Blacks. One by one the unique beliefs of Mormons are explored by the boy’s active mind, often leading to humorous conclusions. By following these explorations the reader will find the answers they are seeking about the Mormon Church and by the end of this story understand what it means to be a Mormon.

Ultimately the Mormon faith does not hold up to the scrutiny of this young boy’s mind and this leads to powerful questions about the whole process of forcing fanatical religious beliefs on the mind of a child.
One Reviewer Notes:
James Sanbourne's story of his youth and the Mormon faith was written in the roller coaster style of being very funny in one paragraph and then crushing you with extreme sadness in the next. While the humor is subtle, it greatly enhanced the book. And while the sadness was evident, it was not done in a `pity party' style. For those who are simply interested in reading an expose of the secret Mormon religion and life style, this is an excellent place to start. You'll find a plethora of information regarding tithes, authority, racism and even underwear. Beyond the basis of the book, this peek behind the curtain provides a decent edification of these `peculiar people'.

About the Author
James Sanbourne was born a Mormon. Raised to believe literally every word of the church doctrine. Some of this doctrine is fantastical and it is difficult for a child to separate fact from fiction in this environment. This book deals with the issues surrounding this type of indoctrination and how it might affect the way a person comes to deal with the process of thinking.
