The Accidental Terrorist
Confessions of A Reluctant MissionaryeBook - 2015
Finalist for the 2015 Association for Mormon Letters Award! 1987-a faltering missionary named Bill Shunn lands himself in a Canadian jail, facing charges of hijacking and the prospect of life behind bars. 1844-a frontier prophet named Joseph Smith lands himself in an Illinois jail, facing charges of treason and the prospect of imminent lynching. What binds these two men together? This riveting memoir-by turns hilarious, provocative and thrilling-answers that question in style, weaving from their stories a spellbinding tapestry of deception, desperation and defiance. Answer its call and you'll never look at a Mormon missionary the same way again. "This just may be my favorite true-life amazing-but-true tale-never has threatening an aircraft been funnier or more thought-provoking." -Cory Doctorow, author of Little Brother and Homeland
