Trial of Faith

2007: John Donald Gustav-Wrathall, “Trial of Faith,” Dialogue 40.2 (Summer 2007): 78-107.

In 2007 there is an essay by John Gustav Wrathal, a man who was excommunicated in 1986 and remains in a relationship, now married to his long-time partner. But he is also deeply committed to the church, attending regularly, after having left for other spiritual communities. His essay “Trial of Faith” is a memoir through the history of LDS teachings and his own changing understanding.
