Having been a missionary, I know how hard it is to speak to stranger’s about your beliefs. I got many doors slammed in my face. This “Memoir of Me and the Missionaries” gives me hope for missionaries everywhere.
In this quick and engaging read, Dan Harrington provides a fascinating look into his experience of meeting with the LDS Missionaries. The writing is light and interesting and the experiences are inspiring without being preachy. Dan writes for a newspaper, and his experience shows in his easy, interesting style. An excellent read that supports understanding and open-mindedness.
Throughout the book, you get the impression of complete candor from the author. Sometimes it’s funny and witty, while other times it is deeply insightful. I felt deeply moved by Dan’s struggles and triumphs and at once intensely grateful that he took the time to document the ups and downs in this path.
