Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

"David Mason drew an authentic picture of Mormonism. He erased that picture and drew another one. Then he scratched out that one and drew a third. The third he tore out of his sketchbook and threw at a trash can, only he missed and didn't get up immediately to recover it, which is why he has to pick up litter in Overton Park for the next three weekends." --Devi Dhvanme Sen, author of This Is Shakuntala: a mormon fantasia on the global village

"A tumble of excuses and justifications. A right proper religious apologia." --Lazarus Filament, curmudgeon

"If you read only one book about Mormonism, you should read at least one more." --Harley Snitch, useless layabout

"I don't know what I'm doing." --David Mason, author of My Mormonism

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed the book. It was theologically stimulating, historically interesting, and slightly irreverent. It also was a very personal insight into one person's particular faith. I really liked that. So often we stereotype groups rather than focusing on the individual. Mason's book gave us a look into his own mind and soul. A reader cannot ask for anything better. This book was neither a polemic against Mormonism nor a mindless testimony for its virtue. It was a simply entertaining, yet intellectually stimulating read. Any author who can use the word "transmogrifiability" in a book deserves five stars just for that! It made me see Mormonism as perhaps more tolerant of dissident or different thought than I had come to believe. If you are a student of comparative religions, hermeneutics, and theological history, mixed with a bit of Carl Rogers' theory mixed in, this book is for you. Oh, and by the way - it was a hoot to read!
