At the core of the book is a double murder committed by a pair of brothers, Ron and Dan Lafferty, who insist they were commanded to kill by God. Beginning with an account of this "divinely inspired" crime, Krakauer constructs a multi-layered narrative of polygamy, savage violence and unyielding faith. Along the away he uncovers a shadowy offshoot of America's fastest growing religion and raises provocative questions about the nature of religious belief.Hide synopsis

While the theme was very depressing, it told the story of the beginning and evolution of the Mormon church and offered several very real examples of religion at its worst. The general theme could be applied at one time or another to any and all religions, in the past and in the future. Frightening ...
This book will probably figure in this election year with a Mormon in the political picture. It does merit consideration. The Arizona towns told about in the book are in current news and make one wonder.
I haven't finished this book yet, but I can't help but be struck by the parallels between these two fundamentalist societies. They are both patriarchal, believe in plural marriage, keep women uneducated and without power, keep their followers ignorant of cultures/news/information from outside their ...
