Jay Tyson

Jay Tyson grew up outside of Detroit, Michigan and graduated from Princeton University with a degree in Civil Engineering in 1976. Shortly thereafter he married Eileen Cregge. They spent four years in Liberia, West Africa, where Jay worked on road construction projects. They settled in Haifa, Israel for seven years, where he assisted with historic restoration at the Baha’i World Center. They returned to New Jersey in 1989, where they raised two daughters and Jay continued his career in engineering.

Raised in a Presbyterian household, Jay wondered why God had sent Messengers on a regular basis from the time of Noah to the time of Jesus but seemed to have fallen silent for the past 2,000 years. This question led him to investigate and eventually accept the idea that there is a common Source of all religions—a theme which he first encountered while learning about the Baha’i Faith.

Diving into the depths of religious prophecy, he has found the commonality between religions are much deeper than just a similarity of ethical teachings. For the prophecies, when carefully understood, can lead to a profound appreciation of an unseen Intelligence from which they emanate.

In addition to his research and writing, Jay is an active proponent of recognizing the commonalities across religious traditions in his local community.

Jay Tyson is the author of “The Wise Men of the West: A Search for the Promised One in the Latter Days.” 

By the 1830s and 40s, many Christians had good reason to believe the Second Coming of Christ was imminent. Yet, in spite of increasing evidence that Divine intervention should have occurred by now, the expectations have not been fulfilled. What went wrong? Was there something mistaken about our expectations?

In “The Wise Men of the West,” American Josiah Thompson begins to unravel this mystery when his conversation with a Greek Orthodox Priest reveals a single misunderstood word in English translations of the Bible might have caused a host of misunderstandings. Further clues are found in Jesus’ reference to the prophecies of Daniel, as unsealed by the Rev. William Miller in the 1830s. So Josiah’s son, Zach, and his fellow explorer, James Lawrence, set out in 1843 on a journey to the Holy Land in search of the Promised One. They are shocked to discover that the promise of the Return of Christ is just a part of a far larger story.

In this novel, author Jay Tyson cites prophecies known to many and weaves a tale that closely tracks historical facts, while also uncovering clues which have been too-often ignored by traditional Christian writers.
