REDEMPTION is a companion book to The Point: The Redemption of Oban Ironbout. The work is set on the metaphorical Isle of Estillyen, where creative monks stage dramatic readings of biblical stories. In The Point, the readings were presented in synopsis form. Now readers can delve into the twelve Scripture narratives as they were originally given by the monks of Estillyen. Richly inspiring, this unique volume promises to draw readers closer to the theme of redemption–and to the Redeemer himself. The story beckons. Life it gives. Redemption it offers.

What people are saying about “The Point”

“The concept of the monks dramatic `Readings’ is stupendous. I am now reading scriptures in a far more profitable and interesting way.”

“Ultimately, all of these varied word-pictures worked together to lead to not only Oban Ironbout’s redemption, but to the many character’s redemption. Each character was impacted one way or another by the readings, and it proved that old saying, “no man is an island”.”

“This is the kind of book that you’ll want to read over again, savoring the stories and the words that are used to create them. This is the kind of book you will want to read and then discuss with others, especially the stories the monks tell.”

About the books by William Jefferson

“The style is allegorical in part reminiscent of John Bunyan and C.S. Lewis. The ‘readings’ hearken to Donne and Milton as well. The themes are deep. Discerning readers will be drawn into the mystery surrounding Ironbout’s tortured soul. 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.’”
—Blue Ink review

“In this intelligent and heartfelt novel, a community of monks offer ‘readings’ that powerfully illuminate the words of the Bible for a modern audience.

It is a compelling tale told by a gifted and inspired storyteller. Author William Jefferson 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. The ‘readings’ powerfully illuminate the words of the Bible for a modern audience.”
