The Point Changes Lifes

The Point by William E. Jefferson takes us to the gorgeous Isle of Estillyen where Goodwin & his wife, Hollie Macbreeze try to find some respite from her illness.  Once there they encounter the bitter Oban Ironbout who has been beat up with life's uncertainties.  His soul is tortured.  In this Christian Fiction novel we journey with the three through their struggles to find meaning and faith.  Surrounded by story telling monks they learn about the very real struggle between the forces of darkness and the light.  The monks share pieces of scripture in a poetic way.  The story is deep and caused me to spend a lot of time in contemplation.  Ordinarily I prefer non-fiction Christian books but there is a lot of charm and sweet reflection throughout it's pages.  William E. Jefferson's mode of writing is enchanting and never boring, making it a book you won't want to put down.  I was given the honor of reading this book for Handlebar Publishing.  I definitely would recommend.
