A Healing Message for Troubled Times
(Also available in Abdiel’s audiobook narration)
When Covid first showed up in 2020, it presented us with a choice: to respond with fear, or to respond with love. This book is an appeal to love, seeing in the new virus an abolitionist reformer that will set us free from the structures of enslavement and exploitation that have been oppressing planet, peoples, and species.
And there is no better author to deliver this message than Abdiel LeRoy, a former Reuters correspondent and Bible scholar, a storyteller and poet, who has discerned and set out for us the prophetic mission of Covid, likening it to the role of plague when wielded by Moses to free an enslaved people in ancient Egypt.
Here is no flag-waving for party or candidate but recognition that the political system, with its imperial structures, no longer serves us, that its exponents—whether in Oval Office or Downing Street—are wedded to corporate lobbyists and do not have our best interests at heart. Nor does this book serve up conspiracy theory, unless of course conspiracy be to heal!
Whether you are a seeker of Bible prophecy, climate activist, or simply love great storytelling in poetry and prose, this message of awakened hope will call to your heart.
“A brave new presence in the politics of the globe.”
San Francisco Review of Books
“Abdiel LeRoy’s poetry and prose offer intellectual nourishment for critical thinkers and seekers of truth.”
