What's your story about?
Divine Choreography of Redemption: Setting the Eternal Saga in Time, explores the story of redemption as divine drama advanced by acts and agents that transcend time and space.
At the heart of the novel, a significant battle brews betweenaugmented reality—aided by algorithms and modern technology—set against faith inspired life nurtured by Scripture’s abiding narrative.
The novel is set beyond the Storied Sea on the ancient Isle of Estillyen, far from everywhere, yet mystically near. There, atroupe of Message Makers from the seventeenth century mysteriously arrives to grapple with theme in today’s context.
I've pondered the title for several years. I view the whole of Scripture as the Divine Choreography of Redemption.
Main characters, what inspired them?
The main character is a monk named Narrative. He has a very surreal other world experience in which he knows everyone in his community, but no one knows him. His aim was to write about the redemption's divine choreography, instead the story writes it for him. There is also a fictional Lucifer, a fiendish agent called Bewilderment, three antagonists named, Platform, Discarnate, and Redemption. He hero is a 17th century monk named Bevin Roberts who enters the story via the Estillyen mist. These are just a few of the colorful characters.
Is this your first book?
