Desert Jews: From Jesus to Oppenheimer
DESERT JEWS: FROM JESUS TO OPPENHEIMER is the story of the construction of the first Zionist/Christian hotel and Bible park on the Vegas strip. It is a story of revenge, drugs, terrorism, atomic bombs, end-times theology and the untold sexual cravings of Ronald Reagan. Desert Jews is the story of the infamous Howard Roll, a man who only wanted to be great and do good, but who will ultimately be remembered as the man who made Las Vegas disappear...
