An Unlikely Mormon: The Conversion Story of Glenn Beck (DVD )
by Glenn Beck
An Unlikely Mormon shows the real Glenn Beck. But be careful, Glenn's enthusiasm for his faith is contagious.
Glenn Beck is not the man he used to be. “My life changed,” says Glenn. “I may look the same. I may sound the same. But I am not the same man. . . the healing power of Jesus Christ transformed me.”
In this presentation, Glenn Beck tells an audience of nearly 7,000 about his conversion to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. His story is both stirring and sobering. Glenn bears his testimony about home teaching, tithing, and the transforming power of the Spirit. He talks about his addiction to alcohol, the miracle of the Atonement, and the reality that God does answer prayers. In particular, he acknowledges God's hand in how he met his wife, Tania, and in their family's spiritual quest for faith and religion. Funny and inspirational, Glenn's story will strengthen the testimony of any Latter-day Saint. In addition, An Unlikely Mormon will be an ideal missionary tool.
The Glenn Beck Program is the third-highest-rated radio program in America. It attracts a staggering five million listeners a day and is syndicated on more than 280 radio stations nationwide. Beck also hosts “Glenn Beck” on CNN Headline News.

I wasn't quite sure what to expect from hearing his story. I loved his candor and honesty as he told his story. His experience truly shows what a "change of heart" is like.
A must have!

I like Glenn Beck because. I feel he asks the kind of questions that I would ask if I were in his position as a TV Commentator. I can sense that he has a good heart. Just last night I watched this story of his conversion. It made me laugh and made me remember how all encompassing the atonement is for anyone willing to seek and follow our Savior Jesus Christ. This would make a nice Family Home Evening lesson (teens and YA especially) or fireside. I appreciate his willingness to share his story and his testimony.
It was a very powerful story.

I hadn't heard much about Glenn Beck before buying this video regarding his conversion. I knew he was a radio/television personality and had heard he joined the church. I watched the video alone for the first time and then watched it again with one of my daughters hoping something from the video would touch her heart. I have since watched the video 3 more times each time hearing new things that touch my heart and inspire me to do something good. I'm hoping that this experience will not only help others who see it but also help a life long member (me) be truly converted the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
So powerful it can change lives.

Without a doubt this has got to be one of the most moving conversion stories ever told. That Glenn would be willing to share this with everyone tells us all how special this man is, A powerful missionary tool that is sure to change hearts and lives for the better.

As a convert to the Church, I was a bit nervous watching this DVD because I was worried that he would trivialize the conversion process in some way. However, that is NOT true. This DVD is well thought out, well executed, and full of the Spirit. I can watch it over and over again. In fact, I've had it for less than a week and I've already watched in three times. I recommend it to all.
Got to love Glenn

Fantastic! I was in the audience and have been waiting for this to come out so I can share it with friends. It really was inspiring and funny and spiritual all wrapped up in one. Even if you don't like Glenn Beck's politics, you will love this.

I love Glenn's story and how he found the church. I think his story, show and comments will lead others to search the Church.

I bought the DVD on Monday and watched it Monday and Tuesday. Glenn did his research before he joined the church and he is brilliant. Love the guy and love the story. Thank you!
This is a "must have" DVD for your collection!

Inspiring and Entertaining! Glenn's story is very insightful as you look into the heart and soul of a man who frees himself from addiction and finds true happiness in the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Addiction Overcome by the Lord
by Kathy - reviewed on February 19, 2009
I love this DVD! It shows the power of the love of Christ and His Atonement in the life of a truly lost soul. Glenn's story of addiction and sadness being overcome by the true Gospel will inspire anyone, especially not wanting to be a Mormon. He also talks about getting help for addictions, which is very important. The only thing I didn't like about this DVD is that it ended too quickly - an hour isn't enough! I hope Glenn turns this into a book with more extensive background.
Touching and Funny

This video made me think about my own conversion, and the way I treated LDS Missionaries in my past. Thank you Glenn, for sharing your story.
What a funny guy!

I hadn't heard of Glenn Beck until a few weeks ago. I bought the CD of him actually for my husband, but I ended up listening to him and laughed and really enjoyed it. What a funny guy!
I was impressed!

I was impressed with the sincerity of Glen Beck. Not only did this DVD make us laugh, but we cried as well. Everyone loves a good conversion story, and Brother Beck knows how to tell his story well. Two of my children attended this presentation. They were impressed as well. We've been looking forward to having it available to purchase.
Give this along with a Book of Mormon

I loved Glenn Beck on the radio - he was not the typical talk show host. He was not afriad to speak with principles and values. Then low and behold, I came on here to shop and I saw GLEN BECK is a MORMON! Wow! He will reach the hardest heart. Not only did I laugh and cry, I was shaken and inspired to do more to reach out to the less active and to non-members. This along with the Book of Mormon, will be an excellent missionary tool. We had a FHE last night on "Testimony" this was the highlight of the night. Buy it NOW! Melinda from NY

Glenn Beck has such an inspiring story that everyone should hear.
I was at the show when it was made!
by Tamara - reviewed on October 12, 2008
What a fun and exciting show. I was at the show he did in SL when they made the video. I have seen Glen several times and really enjoyed the stories he shared on the video. I enjoy the spirit he shares when he talks about his testimony.
Inspirational Conversion Story!!
by Customer - reviewed on January 26, 2009
I never really knew much about Glenn Beck except that he was in the radio industry and that he was a convert to the LDS church. After watching this DVD, I realized how much this man has gone through in his life and how much the Lord must really love Glenn to have a good LDS member close to him at all times in his life, representing the church. I was deeply touched by Glenn's conversion story, as he did not have the typical conversion with 2 missionaries showing up at his home and then he converted. He resisted it a bit. He is a great example for others and I will share his story to all of my friends and family, LDS and non-LDS members. May we all be good examples to the "Glenn Beck's" in the world. You never know how you may influence someone elses life. This was made clearly evident by Glenn and his friendships with some LDS men. Keep up the good work, Glenn.

I would have liked to know more of why he was converted. What gospel principles what truths did he learn, what piqued his interest. It was too surface with not enough depth.

A great example of the conversion process working no matter who you are or where you come from.
