A FairMormon Analysis of:
"Why People Leave the LDS Church" (2008)
A work by author: John P. Dehlin


The PowerPoint screencast "Why People Leave the LDS Church" (2008) by John Dehlin deals with two different major issues related to those who leave the Church:

  1. Historical and doctrinal issues which surprise and shock members.
  2. Social considerations regarding the way that members who deal with these issues are treated by other church members.

We will see that member's chief problem often lies in having heard or been taught something. When he finds that the matter is more complicated or nuanced than he had at first believed, he concludes that he must reject the Church entirely.
