Lewi's journey by Per Olov Enquist ( Book )
7 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 352 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Lewi's Journey is a fictional account of the two men who built the Swedish Pentecostal movement 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 Christendom, claiming at its peak a membership of more than 250 million souls worldwide. A humble preacher and failed writer of social novels, Lewi Pethrus introduced controversial reforms and a commitment to social equality through his tireless pursuit of spiritual and moral purity. His relentless energy won the movement thousands of new converts, but none more important than Sven Lidman, a decadent bohemian poet racked by disatrous affairs and a tortuously failed marriage, who was reborn as a prodigal son and the spiritual conscience of the movement, holding swooning audiences in thrall to his ecstatic and brilliantly metaphorical sermons that often recounted his own journey from perdition to penitence. These two men, allied by their faith and fervor, who guided the movement through unprecedented growth, were ultimately to become bitter enemies, through a schism ignited by a mysterious journey to America undertaken by Pethrus during World War II." "Lewi's Journey is at once an examination of the conflicts between faith, power, conscience, and sexuality and a hypnotic tale of a moral and spiritual quest for purity and meaning."--BOOK JACKET

"Hailed internationally for his unique ability to shape historical facts into tales of extraordinary depth and probing insight, Per Olov Enquist has long been regarded as one of the world's foremost authors of literary fiction. In The story of Blanche and Marie, Enquist has once again found inspiration from the historical record, this time exploring the complex relationship between two of the twentieth century's most remarkable women: Blanche Wittman, the famous hysteria patient of Professor J.M. Charcot at Salpetriere Hospital outside Paris, and Marie Curie, the Polish physicist and Nobel Prize winner. While the scientist tries to understand the nature of radiation, Blanche, her assistant and, at the time of her death, a triple amputee as a result of exposure to radiation, fills three notebooks with her exploration of deceptively simple question: What is love?
