The Point: The Redemption of Oban Ironbout Book Review

About the Author -

William Jefferson, founder of Port Estillyen Productions and author of the breakthrough new novel, 'The Point - The Redemption of Oban Ironbout', has spent his professional career advancing Scripture mission programs through diverse forms of media.  After 25 years of strategic leadership on behalf of well-known Bible societies and evangelization organizations, Jefferson is uniquely positioned to present Scripture's ancient truths, in a modern context of media and culture.  Prior to authoring 'The Point', Jefferson helped to structure and implement global initiatives and programs for prominent organizations such as the American Bible Society, United Bible Societies, the International Bible Society (Biblica), and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.  He holds an M.Th. in Theology and Media from the University of Edinburgh and an M.A. in Communications from Wheaton Graduate School.  With his novel, 'The Point - The Redemption of Oban Ironbout', Jefferson shares much of the wisdom that he has gleaned during his career: that words matter, that every human being has innate worth, and that Christ alone is the perfect union of Medium and Message.  William Jefferson's preferred title is simply "Message Maker."  He writes from his rural home in the Ozarks, where he lives with his wife, Lois, and Border collie, Archie.

In a quest for peace and inspiration, Hollie and Goodwin Macbreeze travel to the Isle of Estillyen.  Estillyen is a distant harbor which is known for bringing ancient words of worth to the present.  Their lives become unexpectedly and inseparably intertwined with the reclusive Oban Ironbout.  There is also a mystery from the past that will transform them all.  It is a tale of pain and redemption.  In this breakout novel of spiritual revelation, William E. Jefferson invites the readers to take a journey of discovery where joy and meaning break through pain.  His writing is skilled, poetic, and reminiscent of the classical period. 

I really enjoyed reading The Point and I highly recommend this to everyone.

I received a review copy from Handlebar Publishing, but the opinions I expressed are my own.
