Religion & Spirituality:Spirituality
Jamie Wright is the very worst missionary, but she still knows far more about missions than you do, and doesn’t care if you like her or not.
Jamie Wright is a writer who knows spending $53 billion annually to spreak white people religion is ridculous. That's why she closely monitors the crap meter that evaluates such "mission trips" and "callings" and loudly and colorfully reports the truth to anyone who will listen.
Her new book "The Very Worst Missionary: A Memoir or Whatever" is the most honest book on being a missionary I have read. It's based on her five years as an on-the-ground, full-time "foreign" missionary, and is a spot on account of the underbelly of what it's like.
She's a good writer who is going to get even better with her next book (I have her promise she will keep working on it).
After you buy her book, follow her latest musings on her blog here.
