Why did my friend Chana write a book, “THE FALL,” about the devil?!
Chana replies, “While many who love Jesus are moved to deeper relationship with Him through reading THE FALL, the deepest aim is to reach those who have rejected Christ or feel rejected for whatever reason–whether that be upbringing, science, sexual choices, bad “organized religion” experiences, etc. Through a compelling, sometimes shocking story that opens hearts, THE FALL brings readers to a place of awe before God’s love and plan through Christ. The perspective changes, the worldview changes, folks melt into God’s arms. That’s my heart’s cry.”
My friend Chana Keefer, happily married for 20+ years, homeschooling California mother of four, prays in her closet. Yep, a real closet with clothes in it. At 5 a.m. every morning. For an hour or two! One day she asked God a question, “Why can’t fallen angels be saved?” She admits she should have worded it, “Can fallen angels be saved?”
That is a question I’ve never pondered. I just want Satan to burn in the Lake of Fire forever period. Being a Bible college student, I should know a lot about angels and demons, but I haven’t studied the subject very much.
Chana felt like God answered her question in an inspired novel that she lists as “fiction” so as to not “add one jot or tittle” to Scripture. It is a vision that came into her head. She never claims her novel to be doctrine. She’s the most Christlike woman I’ve ever met, she gives unconditional love to everyone, and truly lives a life of peace and joy. She is beautiful inside and out.
I read Chana’s book before it was in print. It was a luminous, supernatural, seeped-in-Scripture, vivid, fast-paced, original journey into the Garden of Eden, before and after “The Fall.” Reading it made Genesis come alive to me.
Here is a synopsis of “The Fall” by Chana Keefer;
“The story has been told-but never like this.”
“No, Rapha would not strike with physical force this day. But he could not resist goading his enemy just once. Looking up, he fixed the peace of Adonai on Lucifer like a laser, held that malicious gaze for one eternal second-and smiled. A flicker of uncertainty stirred in Lucifer’s eyes.
Rapha opened a single thought to Lucifer as he disappeared with the creature still cradled to his breast:
“You always did hate secrets.”
Rapha, a powerful angel, had seen it in all in his countless years of service. At least he thought he had. Then he met Adam.
Lucifer had it all; Adonai’s favor, Rapha’s friendship and unrivalled power throughout creation. But he wanted more.”
Here is what people are saying about “The Fall” by Chana Keefer:
“This isn’t a Bible study or a statement of orthodox theology — this is a lavish, epic, often violent work of fantasy that is saturated with biblical insight… Harry Potter meets The Book of Common Prayer. Shannon, Dallas, TX
If a horror writer like Stephen King, a suspense filmmaker like M. Night Shyamalan, and a sensitive theologian like Eugene Peterson all got together to write a retelling of the story of Adam and Eve, this is what might result. But beware! Set aside all expectations about such a tale — this story will leave you utterly shocked and unnerved. If you … are easily offended, turn back now. But if you do, you’ll miss out on a challenging, beyond-epic, fictional story that screams “Truth!” with razor-sharp metaphors about the nature of Good and Evil the likes of which you’ve never experienced. Bonnie T., Santa Clarita, CA
… one of the best books I’d read in a decade. It had so many of the elements I’d been longing for in a book: spirituality, quality writing, fascinating characters, satisfying descriptions, folklore, fairies, history, and layers of rhythm. Sarah S., Ponder, TX
The Fall should be required reading for every lover of God, especially if you have ever been asked the question ‘Why would a loving God allow…?’ I wanted the book to never end!
This remarkable read has the potential to change our cultural views of early Biblical history. Tammy L., Tulsa, OK
THE FALL is truly an inspired story and possibly an insight of what really happened… IN THE BEGINNING. David L., Denton, TX
I was captured from the first paragraph of this story. It had me laughing,crying,cheering, and most of all celebrating! Ronda C., Shady Shores, TX
This is a take on the fall of Lucifer, the fall of man, and the fallen nature in all of us that left me breathless and longing to know more of the love of Abba Adonai. Gayla G., Tulsa, OK
I sobbed through about half of this book, laughed in joy, and stretched out the ending so it wasn’t over so soon. I look forward to the next installment. Leslie W.
This book was an amazing ride and I cannot begin to even explain how this book has moved me and left me only wanting to read more. Whether you believe in God or not, this is one story you will not want to put down. Digna D., autumnbluesreviews
The fast-paced twisting and turning – from colorful, picturesque scenes of heavenly green forests and lingering waterfalls, to treacherous, torch-illuminated expeditions with darkened caves amidst forested canopies – kept me wanting more, more, MORE!!! When are you going to write the second and third and fourth Chronicles?! I loved it! Gina W., Valencia, CA”
