Detailed Product Description
New York, 2003, 1st edition or 3rd printing. 373 pp, maps. Hardcover with dust jacket. Like New.

A moving piece of literature witnessing another extreme of mankind; In Under the Banner of Heaven, Into Thin Air author Jon Krakauer shifts his focus from extremes of physical adventure to extremes of religious belief within our own borders. At the core of his book is an appalling double murder committed by two Mormon Fundamentalist brothers, Ron and Dan Lafferty, who insist they received a revelation from God commanding them to kill their blameless victims.
 
Beginning with a meticulously researched account of this "divinely inspired" crime, Krakauer constructs a multilayered, bone-chilling narrative of messianic delusion, savage violence, polygamy, and unyielding faith. Along the way, he uncovers a shadowy offshoot of America's fastest growing religion, and raises provocative questions about the nature of religious belief.
