Description

From back cover:

In the small but cohesive Mormon community in Sweden where he grew up. Hans Mattsson was a fervent believer in Mormonism. He followed his father and grandfather into church leadership positions and eventually moved up the hierarchy to become one of Europe's most senior leaders within the Mormon Church.

But when church members began approaching him with credibly sourced information from the Internet that contradicted the church's official history and teachings, he dismissed it as "anti-Mormon lies" and asked his superiors for help responding. The unwillingness of the top Mormon leaders in Salt Lake City to address the issues led Mattsson on his own search for truth.
