There’s a Sheep in my Bathtub
by Brian Hogan
The story of an American family (the author’s) as they survive and even thrive in the bizarre and topsy-turvy world of post-communist Mongolia from 1992-96. The Hogan family served as English teachers and worked in Asia largest copper mine in addition to helping start Mongolia’s first movement of multiplying fellowships of Jesus followers (now numbering over 40,000). Replete with photo illustrations, this humorous and, at times, heart-wrenching memoir chronicles an intensely personal bird’s eye view of the cataclysmic changes that sweep Mongolia after the fall of totalitarianism.
