Jophiel, Angel of the Beauty of the Divine Presence, incarnates in a mid-western town to a lovely woman and her outlaw husband in this tale set in near-future America. The Arts and Sciences are in decay and the Angel Jophiel comes to the aid of a young composer, guiding him in the making of a new Renaissance, offering a fresh creative impulse for a world on the brink.
Beauty is vanishing from the Earth.
The Western World is in upheaval.

Culture is in decay.
The Arts are dead.
Science and technology are worshiped.
Matter is the only reality.
Humanity alone doesn’t have the power to defeat the enemy arrayed against it.
