Online PR News – 26-October-2018 – New York, NY – William Jefferson’s Divine Choreography of Redemption: Setting the Eternal Saga in Time offers a deeply moving portrayal of the meaning of faith in a world wistfully enchanted by the prospects of artificial intelligence and algorithmic command.
With prophetic insight and disarming wit, the author adroitly illustrates the inevitable clash between the universal advance of digital technology and the human quest for sacred space. The novel covers a terrain of theological and literary reflection—from Dante Alighieri to Jesus Christ and William Shakespeare to Marshall McLuhan—as it probes the relationship of reality and myth.
The 162-page novel was published by New York publisher Hybrid Global in May of this year and quickly picked up five-star reviews from Indie Reader, Readers’ Favorite, and Midwest Book Review.

Lucifer’s Speech to the Netherworld spurs deep theological reflection on matters of redemption and human worth. Today RNS offered a press release on Lucifer’s speech and Estillyen’s contest:
SAN FRANCISCO, California, September 12, 2014—Lucifer’s unprecedented speech to the netherworld is for real. It’s found in chapter twenty-one of Messages from Estillyen: A Novel of Redemption and Human Worth.
Messages from Estillyen contains ten portrayals, in which Lucifer imaginatively appears as a real-time observer of well-known Scripture narratives such as the Transfiguration and the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ. According to author William Jefferson, “The characterization of Lucifer plays a vital role in surfacing important theological truths, particularly the matter of redemption and human worth.”
