Reviews

Praise for Prisoner of Zion

In a series of remarkable essays, Carrier, raised among Mormons, noted similarities in the beliefs and practices of the Taliban and the Utah church, stressing the fundamentalist pledge of obedience to authority, and revelations and visions from God to a Chosen people. Carrier is alternately humorous and serious about the reports from Afghanistan, its people, its culture, and the heavy fighting. --Publishers Weekly

Engrossing stories of travel interspersed with historical vignettes and the author's private struggles to argue for a move away from persecution of believers. --Kirkus
