Deceptive and dishonest. Falsified information.,
By A Customer
This review is from: Mormon Missionaries: An Inside Look at Their Real Message (Paperback)
Having been a Mormon missionary myself, who served in Costa Rica for 2 years, and having read this book, I can say that it is full of half-truths. The author of this book claims to have been a missionary, however, his book is full of half-truths and lies about the process and "motives." The motive of the mission is to convert God's children to what we believe is His church. That's it. There may be some missionaries who aren't as great as others, but I have been there, and know what it's all about. This book is not a valuable source of the truth, and is only worth reading if you are explicitly looking for that kind of thing. I can give any possible readers one thing to consider as you read this book (if you read this book)... consider the author's motives as you read. Think about what the author is trying to spin as you read. You will see and feel the dishonesty as you read.

I find it so obvious when a Mormon makes a comment about this book. Ms. Hutchinson indeed knows her stuff. No half-truths there. She backs up all references to LDS doctrines in endnotes so that readers can check it out for themselves and see that it is accurate.

It's obvious you've never read this book...you just "KNOW this church is truuuuue." And you resort to ad hominem attacks on Ms. Hutchinson. Pitiful. I echo MIRRIE (above).
