Item description

Under the Banner of Heaven - A Story of Violent Faith by Jon Krakauer On July 24, 1984, a women and her infant daughter were murdered by two brothers who believed they were ordered to kill by God. The roots of their crime lie deep in the history of an American religion practiced by millions . . . The authors literary reputation rests on insightful chronicles of lives conducted at the outer limits. In this book he shifts his focus from extremes of physical adventures to extremes of religious belief within our own borders. At the core of his book is an appalling double murder committed by a pair of Mormon Fundamentalist brothers, Ron and Dan Lafferly, who insist they received a revelation from God commanding them to kill their blameless victims. Beginning with a meticulously researched account of this crime, Krakauer constructs a multi layered, cone chilling narrative of messianic delusion, savage violence and unyielding faith. In the process, he uncovers a shadowy offshoot of America's fastest growing religion, analyzes the abduction of 14 year old Elizabeth Smart, her forced "marriage" to her polygamous kidnapper, and raises provocative questions about the nature of religious beliefs.
