The Road to Apocalypse: The Extraordinary Journey of Lewis Way, by Stanley & Munro Price
In the winter of 1811, Lewis Way had an epiphany on the road to Exmouth. From that moment the eccentric millionaire devoted himself to one goal: the return of the Jews to the Holy Land.
To achieve this mission he undertook extraordinary journeys as far as Moscow and Mount Lebanon. Lewis Way is now a neglected figure, but his legacy still has profound religious and political influence in the Middle East and today's America.
This essay uncovers a forgotten life story, and reveals the strange roots of the American Christian Right's current support for the state of Israel.
“An extraordinary story brilliantly told.” - Antonia Fraser
