When Men Become Gods: Mormon Polygamist Warren Jeffs, His Cult of Fear, and the Women Who Fought Back
Bargain Book Copy
As the self-proclaimed prophet of the Fundamentalist Latter Day Saints, Warren Jeffs held sway over thousands of followers for nearly a decade. His rule was utterly tyrannical. In addition to coercing young girls into marriages with older men, Jeffs reputedly took scores of wives, many of whom were his father’s widows. But in 2007, after landing on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted List, Jeffs’s reign was forcefully ended. He would be imprisoned for committing rape as an accomplice. In When Men Become Gods, Edgar Award–nominee Stephen Singular traces Jeffs’s rise to power and the concerted effort that led to his downfall. Newly updated, it describes the controversial 2008 raid on Jeffs’s Texas compound and the fate of the 439 children taken from the sect. It offers readers a rare glimpse into a tradition that’s almost a century old, but has only now been exposed
