Lynn Wilder
Lynn Wilder
Professor - Florida Gulf Coast University
Dr. Lynn K. Wilder, Professor at Florida Gulf Coast University, is a former Mormon and once tenured Professor at Brigham Young University, now a biblical Christian. With a doctorate in education, emphasis in emotional/behavioral disorders, Lynn is a researcher, scholar, journal editor, and author of more than 60 refereed publications and five books in both her professional field and that of faith. Unveiling Grace: the Story of How We Found Our Way Out of the Mormon Church (Zondervan, 2013) is her best-selling book. Michael (husband) and Lynn founded the ministry Ex-Mormon Christians United for Jesus (www.unveilingmormonism.com). Featured in Christian publications and radio, the Wilders frequently speak in churches. It is their passion to introduce the many Mormons currently questioning their faith to the biblical Jesus. Many have come to trust Him. Her newest book is entitled Leaving Mormonism: Why Four Scholars Changed their Minds (Kregel Publications, November 2017).
Leaving Mormonism: Why Four Scholars Changed their Minds
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.

Who Gets a Tax Cut Under the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act?
Last Friday the House and Senate conferees signed off on a conference report resolving differences between the versions of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act that passed each chamber. The final bill is similar to the amended Senate bill from last month, with mostly minor changes, notably, to individual income brackets, the refundability of the child tax credit, and the individual alternative minimum tax.
