How a Mormon missionary failed to convert a single soul, but was saved by his new Catholic Belgian friends along the way.
Craig Harline is the author of "Way Below the Angels: The Pretty Clearly Troubled But Not Even Close to Tragic Confessions of a Real Live Mormon Missionary," just published by Wm. B. Eerdmans Co., and "Conversions: Two Family Stories From the Reformation and Modern America" (Yale, 2011), which was named a Top Ten Book in Religion for 2011 by Publishers Weekly. He is also longtime professor of European History at Brigham Young University. The views and events recounted here are strictly his own, of course. Author picture taken by Alpha Smoot.
