      The story of The Twinkling focuses on the life of Korle, an angel that fell from heaven under the authority of Lucifer. It delves into his past as an angel living a glorious life in heaven, follows him to the depths of hell, to earth as “mankind," and back again to heaven. It explores unspoken possibilities: that of the fallen angels being given a chance to choose which God to serve, with that choice being made during their span of time on earth. Though many scriptures are woven throughout the story, this narrative is not meant to be theological in its message, but is intended, rather, to inspire thought and interest in the eternal side of our existence. The “earth story” deals with sibling jealousy and the profound chaos it can cause. Paralleling jealousy back to the motivation that caused Lucifer to fall, this story reveals not only how abusive events were manipulated by Lucy, the jealous, older sister, but how they worked together for the good in the younger sister regardless of the original intent. Alongside the chaos is the joy of having a best friend, with good events happening in that relationship despite the trouble at home. The “heaven story” is a continuation of the good events, and so much more as Korle explores its wonders and never-ending possibilities with his friend Nagee, whom he later finds out is his earthly guardian angel. The rest of the story, told from heaven’s point of view, deals with hell’s creation and existence, end-time events on earth, and the final war that ends Satan’s power over the earth and its inhabitants. Interwoven throughout the story is the story of Jesus and the salvation offered through his death and resurrection. Fascinating and spellbinding, THE TWINKLING appeals to young and old alike.
