Author/Artist Review

Author: Sisi Theo
Submitted: August 25, 2008

    Tell us a little about yourself.  Married with three children, I've been in school part-time most of my life. I get excited talking about theology, I love new experiences, traveling, reading, and watching movies. I’ve always been interested in story, it’s the only place where you can talk about someone and it’s not gossip. I like to explore the heart beat of people, what they could be thinking and how they arrive at conclusions.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  This book began as a paper for school where I received permission to write in fiction format as long as there was research behind the project. The topic came when I began to dream extensive motion picture dreams and I began to think about Joseph, the dreamer.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  I hope that readers would gain an understanding of covenant. No matter how much humans wander, all things work together for the good as God brings His people back into covenant.

    How were you personally impacted by working on this project?  I was personally impacted when I realized that there was more to Joseph than the ‘boy does good’ theory. All of a sudden, I was faced with another side to Joseph’s story where the Israelites went from sojourners to dwellers and surrendered their freedom for security; moreover, the mere thought of Joseph’s participation in the establishment of Egyptian slavery to Pharaoh boggled my mind. My neat world all of a sudden crumbled as I read the story in light of empire, assimilation, and slavery, while keeping in mind the overarching promise of God’s covenant. Writing this book challenged my theological positions and pushed me beyond my comfortable boundaries.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  After reading “Till we Have Faces” by C.S. Lewis I wanted to write such an amazing book. Lewis has the keen ability to covey the human condition in such a way that gets into the heart of his characters and reveal sin and the need for redemption.
