At its heart, you will find that AURA is a love story. There is the story of Jacob, Rachel, and Clarisse, but there is a deeper love story than that. Jacob has an innate love of all life on this planet and especially of our own species, humanity. While the enemy manipulates people throughout the book to do evil, Jacob is willing to do only what is right, and in the end, makes a sacrifice that no one else has the ability to do.
Paul said in 1 Corinthians 13:13 “For there are these three things that endure: Faith, Hope, and Love, but the greatest of these is Love.” And in John 15:13 we find that Jesus himself said, “There is no greater love than this: that a person would lay down his life for the sake of his friends.” So, how much more so if the people are strangers?
