I remember reading about the Mormons for the first time. My only impression of them was that they were far more holy than I could ever be. Too good to be true, I thought. Yet I decided to approach this new religion with the same absence of bias that I had with every other religion. And so when I stumbled upon an advertisement for the Church offering a free copy of the Book of Mormon, I jumped at the chance. I think my two favorite words in the English language (especially when put together) are the words “free” and “book”, so to see a church offering such a thing felt like a gift from God. Surely, though, I had no clue how strongly that description would later resonate with me.
