Christianity was established across the United States through zealous missionaries and the work done in the missions they established. Franciscan Junipero Serra will be canonized in September of 2015 during the papal visit. In Junipero Serra author Kerry Walters presents the life of this man of complexity and contradictions who was not only the founder of missions and a preacher of the faith but has also become the center of controversy. In his book Walters explores the multi-faceted Christian work of missionaries across the Americas to help the reader better understand the complex history of Christian missions. He explores how "our history has its roots deep in the virtue and vice of the missionary movement" as evidenced in the live of Junipero Serra. This book will be interesting and informational for those interested in the life of this newest saint and his place in the early missionary movement which spread the Christian religion across the United States, especially in California. Fr. John Vaughn is quoted as saying "We've always looked to Serra as the ideal for how to preach the Gospel, as he said "always go forward, never back"."
