My new ebook publishes today: “The Polygamist King: A True Story of Murder, Love, and Exotic Faith in America.”
It’s a work of narrative history, telling the story of James Strang, a religious rebel who tried to build a personal theocracy on Beaver Island in Lake Michigan. My main hope is to recount a good story from our past, though the tale also may hold lessons involving religious pluralism, shifting definitions of marriage, and the limits of tolerance. Best of all, it’s just $2.99–cheaper than a trip to Starbucks!Published in
