Teaser Tuesdays: The Lost Book of Mormon

Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by Should Be Reading.

Grab your current read. Open to a random page. Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page. BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!) Share the title and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

The Lost Book of Mormon: A Journey Through the Mythic Lands of Nephi, Zarahemla, and Kansas City, Missouri by Avi Steinberg

"Even God had to sacrifice his only begotten son just to get himself a musty little sepulchre in which to stretch his legs out. And so the Mormons were offered a deal: cease missionary operations in Israel and to Israelis abroad and indefinitely halt publication of a Hebrew edition of The Book of Mormon in exchange for permission to build a center on the sacred Mount of Olives."

The Mormons agreed. And Avi spends a long time fruitlessly searching for an Israeli Book of Mormon. When he does eventually find a Book of Mormon in Israel, it is in Samoan.
