“Peacebringer,” Ward Moore, 1950

“Peacebringer,” Ward Moore, 1950 – A chemist becomes a self-proclaimed messiah, bent on world peace and the proper utilization of lignic, a wood product.

Comments: Humor, satire.  References to Isaiah.  Read in The Classic Book of Science Fiction. The introduction points out that Moore is Jewish and that his first publisher renamed the story “The Sword of Peace,” which unintentionally linked it to the New Testament. 

Author: Wikipedia: “Ward Moore (August 10, 1903 – January 28, 1978) was the working name of American author Joseph Ward Moore. Moore grew up in New York City, and later moved to Chicago, and then to California.”
