Lewis resa

Lewi's Journey

by Per Olov Enquist

This is the story of Lewi Pethrus, the legendary creator of the Swedish Pentecostal movement and one of the great spiritual leaders that both Sweden and the world at large has ever known. He was highly controversial in his day, but is now almost totally forgotten. Who was he, and what did his path to God look like?

P.O. Enquist, himself one of God’s grandchildren, with experience of the revivalist movement, describes in a personal and surprising manner Lewi’s path from a working boy with dreams of becoming a proletarian author, to a spiritual leader well aware of his power. Lewis resa/Lewi’s Journey is a look at the twentieth century through the camera lens of spiritual revivalism.
