Hailed internationally for "The Royal Physician's Visit," winner of premier literary prizes around the world, Enquist returns with "Lewi's Journey" is a powerful fictional account of the two men who built the Swedish Pentecostal movemen t from a renegade congregation based in a crumbling church house and ridiculed for paying credence to such practices as speaking in tongues, spirit baptism, and left-wing politics, into the third largest religious community within Chris tendom, claiming at its peak a membership of more than 250 million souls worldwide. This is at once a compelling examination of the conflicts between faith, power, conscience, and sexuality and a tale of a spiritual quest for meaning.
