One resource indicates that "allegory is a figure of speech in which abstract ideas and principles are described in terms of characters, figures, and events. The objective of its use is to teach some kind of a moral lesson." Accordingly, the intent of this book is to explain the letters to the seven churches in the book of Revelation in fictional stories. Such stories are based on seven middle-aged women whose lives in current-century circumstances possibly parallel the good and poor choices made by those churches to which the letters are addressed. Their lives are closely followed and, at times, directed by the character Driscoll, who is a truly supernatural person of the angelic sort.
