Sobering -

Frieda loaned me Jon Krakauer's book, Under the Banner of Heaven, A Story of Violent Faith, a book on the Mormon religion.

I started reading it last night and am continuing it today and find it both riveting and appalling.   Part of me wants to put the book down and the other part is gripped to read more of this rapidly growing religion and belief system.

I find it hard to understand how people can believe these things and be so easily manipulated and many are, so it is important to read about them.

I recommend this book as a must-read.  Jon Krakauer is astounding as always!
