Book of Deliverance

BOOK OF DELIVERANCE

The Book of Deliverance tells a story of the deliverance of an oppressed people. We are shown an evil emperor, who makes momentous decisions for trivial reasons, and his wicked minister, who takes advantage of the king’s compliance to pursue a personal vendetta against the minority people by having a royal decree issued ordering their destruction. The threat is averted by two of these people. Their influence and intervention allows them to turn the tables on their enemies and rout their attackers. This deliverance is commemorated by the inauguration of a festival to commemorate their victory. The book confronts the modern reader with important themes, the evils of genocide and racism.

One of the characters matures over the course of the narrative. As an immature person, this individual is recruited for the king’s harem because of their physical beauty. But at a key moment in the book, they rise to the challenge to risk their life for the salvation of their people. It is also a transition that the author goes through from one kind of person into another kind of person, a more mature person. The other character is a mentor who is in on the plan and becomes the main minister to the people who have been oppressed.

The book is a free composition, not a historical document. Its fictional character can be illustrated by many examples of literary motifs: the use of extensive conversation to move the plot along; the motif of concealment. A whole series of banquets structure the work: two by the king, one by the assistant, three by the main protagonist, and the joyful banqueting that ends the book. Further artificialities are clear in the way characters are paired and in the delays and the speed of the action; and one even passes from the threat of death to royal honors within twenty-four hours. There are many exaggerations, and even sarcastic implausibilities, and huge ironies. The work is a composite of reversals in the lives of individuals and communities.

The book was written in 2011 and included because of the connections that are forged between this particular story and the story of the human spiritual journey.

One striking feature of the first version of the Book of Deliverance is that no divine names or titles are employed. This would not be unusual in a book whose subject matter or outlook was more secular, but deliverance is a book in which the religious element is prominent.Moreover, there are indirect references to divine activity.

The later additions to deliverance have many explicit references to the divine, as well as explicit descriptions of the beliefs and emotional states of the main characters. They also elaborate on the content of the edicts as illustrations of the oppressors attitudes toward the oppressed. While there are only a few contradictions between these additions and the older text, reading the book with these additions is a very different experience from reading the book without them. The additions are an excellent example of a process that occurs throughout the text itself: further reflections on the story become part of the story itself.
