(1845-1897) US minister and author of The Time Is Coming (1896), a Near Future tale in which a Jewish state is founded in Palestine – Theodor Herzl's The Jewish State (1896) had just been published – with the aid of advanced Weapons. In what a century later might have been understood as a deliberately Equipoisal turn, the prophet Elijah intervenes, though his admonishing Jewish leaders for their failure to embrace Christianity strictly dates the appeal of this incursion.
