Each year thousands of young people serve as door-to-door witnesses to spread their "restored gospel." Have you ever wondered what you would do if the Mormon Missionaries knocked on your door? Do you know enough to carry on a conversation with them? If not, then this book is for you. In this second and updated edition, author Janis Hutchinson goes behind the appearances to examine the Mormon missionary program, from its unorthodox theological beliefs and political agenda for America, to its carefully planned strategies to win converts. The book contains updated statistics, and is heavily researched and documented with 46 pages of endnotes. "A researcher's dream!" stated one reviewer. It also includes a new chapter not found in the first edition that describes the LDS Church's present evangelistic manual, Preach My Gospel, in which it outlines the missionaries' lesson material, pointing out how it differs from the 1986 Uniform System for Teaching the Gospel, used up until 2003. "One of the most impressive aspects of this book," another reviewer said, "is the respect that Ms. Hutchinson shows toward members of the Mormon Church."
Horrible read. Don't waste your money!!
What a waste of money. The author wasn't captivating, used "fluffy" language rather than practical facts, and clearly isn't a professional author who has a thorough understanding on her subject matter.
There are much better ways to learn how to talk to the missionaries!
