Elder Robert Wood expects his Mormon mission to be a glorious affair. As the great, great grandson of Epaphroditus Wood--a legendary missionary in Mormon church history--Elder Wood believes that he too will work mighty miracles and convert many to the Truth.
But everything goes hilariously wrong. Harassed by a motorcycle thug, Elder Wood encounters rejection and persecution. His attempts at performing miracles backfire with comical consequences. His Mission President--obsessed with impossible baptism goals and ridiculous proselytizing programs--works Elder Wood to exhaustion. And to top it all off, his Zone Leader's out to steal his girl.
Just when things can't get any worse, he's paired with a mischief-maker who gets them into laughable situations, and who questions things Elder Wood holds sacred. Even visitations from beyond the grave by Epaphroditus--intended to give Wood insight and guidance--reveal a dark truth about his ancestor that Elder Wood would rather deny.
Through all his trials and tribulations, Elder Wood grows to become the kind of person that his great, great grandfather, Epaphroditus, would be proud of.
Irreverent and offbeat, Messengers of Truth depicts some of the struggles, temptations, paradoxes and politics encountered by missionaries in the Mormon church.
