    Kindle marjoriejane.co Õ Under the Banner of Heaven ePUB Ð Banner of PDF under download, banner mobile, heaven epub, Under the epub, Banner of pdf, the Banner of kindle, Under the Banner of Heaven Kindle40 to 45 stars For non fiction this book had me absolutely riveted from the very beginning This true crime narative has three main themes all of which I think Krakauer accomplishes extremely well First this is a true crime story of the brutal double murder of Brenda Lafferty and her 15 month old baby girl at the hands Ron and Dan Lafferty the older brothers of Brenda’s husband Second is a survey of the origin and early history of Mormonism and the basic doctrines of the Mormon faith Third the book details the deep divide and animosity between the Mormon church and the various fundamentalist Mormon sects including the one to which the murderers belonged These three story lines are not broken down into sections but are interwoven throughout the book However for simplicity I will address each separately THE MURDERSOn July 24 1984 Brenda and Eric Lafferty wife and daughter of Allen

I mean golden plates lost tribes Nephites battling Lamanites Orrin Hatch Well yes I guess one look at Tom Cruise jumping up and down on Oprah's couch suggests that Scientology has a lot to answer for as well For that matter I've never understood how a burning bush speaks to someone Why a burning bush? Why not say a burning acacia tree? But if mainstream Mormonism is a little on the far out side then fundamentalist Mormonism sort of like regular Mormonism with fanaticism racism welfare cheating taking of wives and child rape is like the spastic uncle that mainstream Mormo

    Kindle marjoriejane.co Õ Under the Banner of Heaven ePUB Ð Banner of PDF under download, banner mobile, heaven epub, Under the epub, Banner of pdf, the Banner of kindle, Under the Banner of Heaven KindleThis book makes a lot of big promises but it suffers from several serious flaws1 Lack of focus2 Too long3 Preposterous claim4 BoringThis is a true crime novel maybe set against the history of the Mormon Church but not really trying to tie in a couple of murders committed by a couple of sickos all too common into an historical and political climate of post terrorist millennial religious revival unsuccessfullyFor true crime it's shockingly dull and the crime is committed by the middle of the book but you already know it's going to happen because it's committed in the prologue too The characters aren't interesting their motivations are the ordinary motivations of religious sickos and the detail is presented tediouslyThe Mormon Church is presented as entirely to blame for the murderers' thoughts and the victims and for Elizabeth Smart's abduction and captivity It's crammed full of historical detail that might be interesting but it's presented in such a snide disresp

First of all I didn't finish reading this book It was intriguing in the beginning to learn about the Fundamentalist Mormons and the interestingly odd things they believe and practice It was also interesting to contemplate the power of faith Faith in something or someone regardless of what or whom they are can make people do unbelievable things This is trueI can see how Krakauer would have been frustrated when access to historical documents and interviews with prominent LDS leaders weren't granted to him In order to tell all sides of a story you must be able to research
