The Angel’s Offspring: The Life of a Man From Two Worlds
by Aaron Kelsay
One man’s spiritual journey begins with a simple childhood. “Lucas grew up talking to himself, alone in his room as a small boy – talking to people who weren’t there. He would openly relate stories of his grandfather, quirks that he had, before his mother would correct him – Lucas’s grandpa had died before he was even born.” As he got older, though, “Lucas quickly learned the difference between what was real and what was really real.”
Lucas, the book’s protagonist, is a descendant of angels much like in the mythology of Hercules and Achilles, or the Bible story of Goliath. “The Angel’s Offspring” is by no means a regular fantasy or science fiction book – the characters live and work in the 21st Portland, Oregon as the backdrop to their everyday lives. Outwardly, Lucas is a blue collar worker, but every day he mortgages his soul in order to bring what he thinks is God’s justice to the worst of the worst. Essentially, Lucas acts as the angel of death for murderers, rapists, et al by simply knowing who they are. With an over-arching existential attitude in the main characters, “The Angel’s Offspring” seeks to flesh out the tension between a pre-supposed “God” and a world marked by suffering and evil.
In terms of every day life, Lucas and his friends Matthew and Seth are just trying to get by while trying to understand what makes them who they are. Among others, this novel seeks to ask the question What is justice? If God is real, where is he? Can two wrongs make a right? What constitutes ‘good’ and ‘evil?’
