Nothing More Heroic: The Compelling Story of the First Latter-day Saint Missionaries in Indiaby R. Lanier Britsch
Elder B.H. Roberts wrote, 'There is nothing more heroic in our Church than the labors and sufferings of these Brethren of the mission to India.' R. Lanier Britsch shares those labors and sufferings in this history that reads like a vivid story of a dedicated traveler and missionary. Written from the perspective of Amos M. Musser, a former assistant Church historian and one of the seventeen full-time missionaries to India in the 1850s, this book follows the elders' efforts to penetrate the almost unbreakable social and religious shell of British India.
'As the author I have not fantasized conversations or created imaginary scenes. Every event is as true to the story as if I were writing in the historian's third person,' explains Brother Britsch. The mission to India proved to be the most trying missionary experience in LDS history and one which is well-preserved in this account.
