Seminary: A Search

About The Book

For seven years, Paul Hendrickson diligently studied and prayed while he pursued his dream of becoming a missionary priest. But at twenty-one, he made the decision to leave the Seminary.

Now, eighteen years later, Hendrickson shares the details of his experiences studying for priesthood while assessing the significance of the period in his life in the pages of Seminary.

Through a search for his classmates, teachers, and himself, Hendrickson writes about what they were hoping to be during their time in seminary and what they have come to be today.
