A few weeks ago, I received a negative review of Their Works Shall Be in the Dark. But this was different from the others because it was actually pretty encouraging:
And by "the truth about the church," I'm referring, of course, to the fact that the church is not true.
I did make an effort to take a moderate approach in my book rather than writing a story full of one-sided arguments and unfiltered hatred. So perhaps recommending the book may be more likely to make a Mormon think about things differently than, say, sending him a copy of the CES Letter. Maybe it's more likely to elicit thoughtful consideration rather than a knee-jerk reaction. And it's pretty cool to think that someone actually tried to do this.
It seems that it didn't have the desired effect, which is unfortunate. But to whomever recommended my book to this guy, thanks for trying! I'm sorry it didn't work!
