Description

The search for the Promised One takes dramatic turns as our spiritual explorers head eastward beyond the Holy Land. They had discovered surprisingly parallel prophecies from Christian, Jewish, and Muslim sources all pointing to the same time, and all pointing eastward. They set out to find answers from a famed teacher of Karbila, as well as searching at the tombs of the Wise Men of the East and of the Biblical prophet Daniel—both in Persia. With additional clues from the Zoroastrian, Hindu, and Buddhist traditions, help from prayer and guidance in dreams, to what conclusion will their quest lead?

And upon their return, what message will they have for William Miller and the Adventists, whose prophetic insights initiated their quest, but whose traditional expectation of a return from the sky could be shattered?

About the Author

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 that he first encountered while learning about the Baha’i Faith. Diving into the depths of religious prophecy, he has found the commonality between religions is 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.

  1. David Walline

    I learned so much about the relationships among the Zoroastrian Faith, Judaism and Christianity in volume I and quite a bit more; what a great way to explore the fulfillment of prophecies from all 3 religions and then including Islam, from various perspectives; that was very helpful.
    That spiritual adventure continues in such remarkable ways with volume II. Thank you for this creative and deeply moving set of books on this vital gateway period to the age in which we live.

  2. E. Maddocks

    Volume 1 of The Wise Men of the West was excellent. It was written in a fiction genre about expectations of the coming of return of Jesus in the west and of the Promised One in the east. Now we are treated to Volume 2, which is even better. The main characters, Zach and James, have evolved in spiritual understanding as they leave Palestine to travel east through the Mesopotamian river valley to Persia. Their understanding of the nature of their search deepens as they meet and travel with new friends from various religious backgrounds. Their minds swing from excited conversations of shared discovery and insight to quiet prayer and contemplation. The author moves deftly between conversations and informational narratives. Spiritual treasure awaits the reader as he nears the end of this superbly written book.

    I enjoyed Vol I, & am enjoying Vol II.
    If you have ever wondered why prophecy of your faith-tradition seems to have missed the date, follow the characters of this historical novel as they travel & discover evidence of prophecies fulfilled & the beginning of the the Golden Age of spiritual evolution!

  4. Cottage Classy

    This is the brilliant continuation of Volume 1, by the same author. Zack Thompson undertakes the conclusion of his journey, while meeting many interesting characters from various religious backgrounds, who help direct him on his quest for The Promised One of all religions.
