From a rare insider’s point of view, Unveiling Grace looks at how Latter-day Saints are “wooing our country” with their religion, lifestyle, and culture. It is also a gripping story of how an entire family, deeply enmeshed in Mormonism, found their way out and what they can tell others about their lives as faithful Mormons.

The growing popular perception today is that the Mormon church as just another denomination within Christianity, and representatives of the LDS church often encourage this perspective. Despite points of agreement, major differences exist on foundational theological matters (for example, the Trinity), as well as social and moral issues (such as racial equality). As former Mormons turned evangelical Christians, each of whom is an accomplished scholar, the four contributors to this volume provide a unique and authoritative corrective. Each contributor shares his or her story of growing up in the Mormon church, and how biblical, theological, moral, or scientific issues forced them to eventually leave Mormonism. The contributors draw on the expertise of their respective academic fields to show how Mormon teachings and practice fall short biblically and rationally. They also address common objections raised by former Mormons who have lost faith altogether and have embraced atheism or agnosticism--especially under the influence of "new atheists" like Richard Dawkins and Christopher Hitchens.

Barbara Beuys schildert in diesem erstmals 1987 erschienenen Buch eindrucksvoll das gesamte Panorama des Widerstands, Jahr für Jahr, von 1933 bis 1945. Sie erzählt vom Widerstand der Arbeiterbewegung wie von der Entwicklung des konservativen Widerstands. Es geht um die Schicksale von Menschen, um das gefährliche Leben im Untergrund, um Folter und Tod. Es geht um politische Illusionen und Widersprüche, aber auch um außerordentliche Beispiele von Mut und Standhaftigkeit. Gemessen am Erfolg sind Adlige wie Arbeiter im Kampf gegen den Nationalsozialismus gescheitert. Doch dieses Buch will den Widerstand in seiner ganzen Breite, will Licht- und Schattenseiten der jüngeren deutschen Vergangenheit in Erinnerung rufen. Die Autorin schildert, wie einsam die Widerstandskämpfer aller politischen Lager starben und wie sehr sich am Ende alle den besten Traditionen und Werten der europäischen Geschichte verpflichtet fühlten, Maßstäbe für die Gegenwart zu setzen.
