The Power of Everyday Missionaries by Clayton M. Christensen

I really didn’t want to read The Power of Everyday Missionaries by Clayton M. Christensen because I am just really not into doing missionary work. They asked everyone in our ward to read it a few months ago and I put it off and put it off. I finally read it because the Relief Society is planning to start a book club and this is the first book chosen. After all that resisting, I’m glad I read it. It gives good tips for sharing the Gospel with absolutely no expectation of baptism – just sharing to share, because we love it. The book covers sharing with friends, sharing on-line, and more. Lots of great stories (some that led to baptism, some that didn’t – but all are successes – because just sharing is a success) are included. My only problem with the book is how the author laid it out like an academic paper with the telling what you are going to tell them, telling them, telling them what you told them pattern. I found the intro and sum up both to be rather irritating and felt they most definitely could have been dispensed with. It’s a quick read and I do agree with my ward leaders… it’s a must read for all members!
