Each year thousands of young people serve as door-to-door witnesses to spread their “restored gospel.” In this second edition, author Janis Hutchinson, a former Mormon of thirty-five years (also a former missionary), goes behind the appearances to examine the real story of the Mormon missionary program—from its unorthodox theological and political beliefs, including the LDS Church’s agenda for America, to its carefully planned strategies to win converts, and examines the current evangelizing manual for missionaries, “Preach My Gospel.” You will learn more Mormon doctrine than you knew before; also, discover startling facts surrounding Joseph Smith’s claims and receive an eye-opener on where he actually got his doctrines. The book contains updated statistics and is heavily researched and documented with 46 pages of endnotes. “A researcher’s dream!” stated one reviewer. Another reviewer said: “One of the most impressive aspects of this book is the respect that Ms. Hutchinson shows toward members of the Mormon Church.”
Written like a novel, the book is set against the backdrop of a Christian Bible College in San Antonio where two Mormon missionaries bravely venture onto campus. The story portrays Susan, a student, who falls for one of the handsome missionaries. Believing she can convert him she agrees to take their lessons and soon finds herself torn between her romantic feelings and her Christian faith. A concerned teacher on campus, a former Mormon, accompanies her to the missionaries’ lessons, counsels Susan about their false claims, and discusses the Mormon material in her cults class.
