John Draper about this book: This book has everything! Sex! Comedy! Drama! The God of the universe striking people dead! At its core, this book is a coming-of-age tale. Kenny Feller goes on his Mormon mission full of great intentions, sure that he's going to experience the power of God. But all he gets is a lot of nothing, door after door slammed in his face. He's about to give up when he receives a new missionary companion, the wisecracking Jared Baserman. Immediately, Jared starts hearing voices and seeing visions. Kenny is blown away. God does move after all! Or does He? Jared grows stranger and stranger, and various interests cozy up to the pair of missionaries looking to make use of Jared's "gifting." When everything unravels, Kenny has to rethink all he's ever thought about God and push himself to do things he never thought he could do before. A Danger to God is a life-affirming tale of a young man learning to love.
