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 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.

The Wise Men of the West

A Search for the Promised One in the Latter Days

Inspired by Rev. Miller’s interpretation of Biblical Prophecies, Zach journeys to the Holy Land and discovers that Christ’s Return is part of a far larger story.

Synopsis

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.

Why support this book?

  • Highly researched and faithful to the Bible and other religious scriptures.
  • William Miller’s predictions are central to the book, and they sparked the Adventist Movement, of which the Seventh Day Adventists are heirs.
  • Of interest to Baha’is and tied in with the bicentenary of The Bab’s birth.
  • Will be distributed by the Baha’i Distribution Service.
  • Promotes a message of unity that will appeal to all religions and peoples.

Welcome to SOOP, a new concept in publishing and features a groundbreaking model to connect authors and readers. The traditional publishing industry was suited to serve the few, the talented, and the fortunate. But the internet revolution turned that market on its head, introducing e-books and print-on-demand technology—and with them came a self-publishing explosion. In fact, the world of self-publishing has become such a crowded field that many great ideas are simply going unheard among the clamor. And readers are suffering for it, too, with few tools and little power to sort the wheat from the chaff.

Enter SOOP. To bridge the gap created between traditional publishing and self-publishing, we identify what readers want and publish the authors who can deliver. We are NOT a Vanity Publisher. Our revenues come from selling books to readers.

Here’s how it works: Authors submit their book ideas and solicit feedback, while readers pledge support and vote for their favorites. As authors achieve various voting milestones on the path toward 2,000 votes (and publishing contract eligibility), they receive guidance and benefits and complete related check-in activities. Our process focuses on educating and empowering authors to master what we call the three P’s: platform, promotion, and product, even before their books are finished. This approach also helps SOOP to make the right investment choice with every author we publish.
