In Brainwashed and Anointed: The Story of an Ex-Mormon, Christopher Yeoman tells his heart-wrenching struggles within Mormonism with no holds barred honesty and irresistible wit. Raised as a Mormon boy in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Yeoman went through a heavily indoctrinated youth system and at the age of 19, served as a missionary for the Church.
So confident of his religion and the existence of God, he thought nothing would ever break his faith, but after battling with shame and guilt for his so-called ‘sins’, an ordeal with panic attacks and loss, his belief system began to unravel.
This gripping and honest story offers a fascinating insight into the conflict between years of conditioned thinking vs a need to re-programme one’s mind after escaping the clutches of organised religion. Packed with humorous anecdotes and tear-jerking confessions, Brainwashed and Anointed makes for a fascinating read for anyone who is has been affected by religion or not.
