"Jason Olson felt God’s presence in the Jewish tradition he was raised in. So what was he supposed to do when he also heard God’s voice in the Book of Mormon?
"The Burning Book traces Jason’s spiritual journey from aspiring rabbi to Latter-day Saint missionary, from Brigham Young University student to Israeli immigrant, and from Jewish Studies scholar to military chaplain. It’s a memoir about one man’s experience finding God: in two faiths, in two countries, and in the lives of other people.
"Co-written with novelist and poet James Goldberg (author of The Five Books of Jesus and A Book of Lamentations). The Burning Book offers readers a glimpse into Jewish and Mormon cultures and asks what it means to seek the voice of prophets in a modern, multicultural world." [Summary from Amazon]
