Alara’s Call by Kristen Stieffel

Alara’s Call by Kristen Stieffel is about the adventures of a prophet, Alara, a curate in the Telshan church. She follows the will of Telshi, a triune god like our own, so Telshi’s power is released through her to change people and countries. The main difference between Steiffel’s Telshi and our God is that her Creator and Redeemer are both female and her Counselor is male. Some Christians, including myself, feel that since the Creator is not male or female and our Redeemer, Jesus, is male, that the Holy Spirit or Counselor must be female. How else could God create male and female in His image? Stieffel reverses these roles to show equality.

I gave Alara’s Call five stars because her beliefs are my own. She has created a world in which “there’s no noble or peasant, no male or female…, everyone is the same. We distinguish between people by their profession or appearance, but Kenna (the Redeemer of the trinity) doesn’t. She judges only by people’s hearts and souls.” Stieffel’s motto in this book is “no peerage, only peers.” Wouldn’t it be wonderful to live in such a world! Stieffel is a good story teller, and once I was able to project her make-believe world into my brain, it became a page turner.

  1. I am not sure this would be the book for me. I really don’t believe that God could possibly be a female. I don’t believe that everyone is the same or should be the same. In fact, that is a very upsetting concept in my mind.

    1. God isn’t female and, obviously, neither is Jesus. But we were all made in God’s image, male and female. That is why my book personifies the Holy Spirit as being female. I do not personify God, himself, because some people feel that is making a graven image of God and many people take offense to it. That is why Kristen created a different religion in a fantasy world. Perhaps I didn’t make it clear what Kristen meant by everyone being the same. I should’ve said that God looks at all of us the same, as his loving children, no one better or worse than the other. Isn’t that how we should look at others?
