Killing for Faith

If your desparate to find something to read, here's a suggestion...the New York Times Best Seller "Under the Banner of Heaven" by Jon Krakauer. It's not a recent release and it's a little off the path of normalcy, but gives a fascinating perspective on the lives of Mormon Fundamentalists. I read it a while back and it gave me a whole new respect for Mormons and what they have to endure with the criticism of Mormon Fundamentalists...a significantly group of people. Here's a hint: the fundamentalists are the one with multiple wifes and kids on welfare. It's an easy read, but it does contain quite a bit of violence. Worth learning about their history, worth reading.
