In this interview, Sandra Tanner talks about her journey with the book of Mormon from an LDS member who believed the Book of Mormon to be scripture, to a born-again Christian who continued to use the Book of Mormon as scripture, to her doubts about the Book of Mormon, to her ultimate rejection of the book as Scripture, and finally to her later work as a critic of the book.
