Inhaltsangabe: Originally published in hard copy in 1987, The Mission has been read by thousands. While the novel takes place in the early 1960's, missionary experiences on an individual level have not changed much since then. Missions are still hard! And they are spiritual, emotional, testimony building -- and sometimes downright funny.
They are in so many ways a microcosm of life; giving those who serve on one the opportunity to learn about life's challenges and how to deal with them. And in the process, to learn about themselves.
This book is about those experiences. And as most who have read this book and who have served missions have said, "This is real!" The "realness" comes from both the content and the unusual style in which it is written. Through a series of letters, we come to know intimately a young missionary, Pete Hewitt, as well as some of his friends. We see on a first hand basis his struggles with his mission -- and with himself. And how these struggles are ultimately resolved.
There are lessons here for all of us. And especially for young men and young women who are contemplating serving a mission as well as those who have served.
After 20 years, The Mission is again available for purchase. The venue is different (it is published only in eBook format now), it has a new cover, and it has an extensive Forward not included in the original. But the book is the same! And its potential to impact the reader in some striking ways is still there.
