Publisher's Summary

After finding Jesus at a suburban megachurch, young Jamie Wright trades in the easy life on the cul-de-sac for the green fields of Costa Rica. There, along with her husband, kids, and the family cat, she intends to serve God and make converts.
But she soon loses faith and falls into a funk of cynicism and despair. Fortunately, Knives the cat is there, looking on with just enough disinterest to make her laugh...and dare her to try another way. That other way turns out to be telling the truth. She launches a renegade blog, Jamie the Very Worst Missionary, which against all odds soon wins a large and passionate following around the world.
Slowly, she begins to see that being a bad missionary - awkward, doubtful, skeptical - can mean that you're just the kind of person someone else might be willing to hear...and that loving others is just as much about changing yourself as it is about converting them.

Great Insight into Evangelical Church/Missions

Mediocre during personal storytime... BEYOND outstanding when speaking of church/missions experience/insights. Should've hired voice talent.

Funny, thoughtful Memoir

Especially if you grew up in the church or went on a goofy short-term mission trip, this book is for you.
