The accidental terrorist : confessions of a reluctant missionary by William Shunn( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1987, as a young Mormon missionary far from home, William Shunn made the phone call that would change his life--and very nearly cost him his freedom. Homesick, and with the full might of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints arrayed against him, he unwittingly found himself on the path blazed a century and a half earlier by the prophet Joseph Smith himself--a path that meant setting aside man-made laws to follow a higher course ... into more dangerous places. Mixing personal reminiscence with American history, this richly ironic story of a reluctant missionary in Canada peels back the veil of secrecy around the private lives and rituals of those well-scrubbed men and women behind the black name tags, and shows the lengths to which even the most law-abiding of Americans can be driven to prove his devotion to a demanding God and religious community. This is the first appearance in print of the story that enthralled thousands of listeners as a podcast, and which Cory Doctorow praises as incredible, hilarious, sad and instructive ... The whole thing is recounted in engrossing detail."
