read when planning to reach out to these missionaries. It gives real insight and understanding to what the missionaries know
and how they are thinking.
Written by Janis Hutchinson, a former Mormon herself, this book takes you right to the truths behind Mormonism from someone who was an active Mormon for 35 years. While the book was presented as a novel, it read like non-fiction and truth be told, it probably should have been written that way. However, it did not deter from the book at all. There is a wealth of information contained within and this is what is helpful about this book. The need for characters seemed secondary. It was much like the celebrated book The Harbinger, which also had unneeded characters and should have been written as non-fiction.
The Mormon Missionaries takes a close look at how Mormons present their lessons, what subjects they cover and what they purposely leave out and twist to give their religion credibility. The information about Joseph Smith is very interesting and rightly paints him as the con man he was. The fact that he committed animal sacrifices and dabbled in the occult was very surprising.
I found this book to be an excellent tool for witnessing to Mormons. In fact, I have read quite a few books on Mormonism and this is the best one that I have read so far. If you have Missionaries that knock on your door a lot, I would invest in this book.
In addition to the wealth of information contained in this book the author did something else I really liked - she urged compassion on the Mormon people. Don't slam the door on them when they knock. After all, how often does God deliver someone to your door to witness to? I so thoroughly baffled a young missionary recently that she started to question her faith. I could see her mind clicking with a thousand questions, it was like a light bulb went on in her head and I longed to spend more time with her. But she must have been sent home, because I never saw her again, nor was I allowed to talk to her on the phone.
The Mormon Missionaries, is a timely reminder that we can all be lead astray by false doctrines, especially if we don't know our Bible. Not checking out the history behind a religion or keeping Scripture in context is probably one of the many reasons people succumb cults. Mormons in particular place a strong emphasis on family, which looks enticing to those seeking a new religion or church, but this is a deception that merely draws the seeker into a false sense of spiritual security. The author even suggested that most Mormons don't even know their own history and probably have no idea how many times The Book of Mormon has been changed to make Joseph Smith appear as a legitimate prophet.
A very good book with a plethora of information.
