Divine Choreography of Redemption

Divine Choreography of Redemption explores the story of redemption as divine drama advanced by acts and agents that transcend time and space. The novel is set beyond the Storied Sea on the ancient Isle of Estillyen, far from everywhere yet mystically near. There, a troupe of Message Makers from the seventeenth century mysteriously arrives to grapple with the theme in today’s context. At the heart of the novel, a battle brews between technology’s propelled existence—aided by modern devices and algorithms—and life centered in Scripture’s ancient narrative. The storyline begs the question: Does ultimate meaning truly abide in the saga of redemption’s divine choreography, or can it be extracted from media’s discarnate realm? Divine Choreography of Redemption is a celebration of prose, imagination, and faith. The novel casts a fascinating light on Scripture’s enduring drama—a living drama acted out against a backdrop divine.

“In his breakout novel of spiritual revelation, William E. Jefferson invites readers on a journey of discovery where ‘joy and meaning break through pain.’

“The themes are deep. Discerning readers will be drawn into the mystery surrounding Ironbout’s tortured soul. And the readings interspersed throughout the story offer a unique presentation of the Gospel via the ongoing struggle between the forces of darkness and light, and the necessity for the solution in the ‘Word made flesh.’

“The author’s writing is skilled, poetic, and reminiscent of the classical period. This is a book to
savor, not to gulp; the pace is leisurely. The style is allegorical in part, reminiscent of John
Bunyan and C.S. Lewis. The ‘readings’ hearken to Donne and Milton as well.

“The novel will appeal to readers who appreciate British wit, the skill of a true wordsmith, and the challenge of metaphysical introspection. Christian readers will be especially delighted by the creative way the author brings the Bible to life.

“Jefferson stays true to his motto: ‘Words matter, some more than most.’ The words in Messages from Estillyen matter.”

“The author weaves the threads of his story deftly and often poetically, shaping phrases with a lilting rhythm that evokes the cadences of storytellers of old and enhances the aura of mystery that surrounds Estillyen and its inhabitants.”
