Very powerful allegory - excellent use of names, and scripture, to draw us through. Much to ponder here.
This was well put together and well thought out.
I loved your use of the symbolic names, as well as your descriptions.

I have to wonder, though, what happened to have turned his entire family away from him?
Your story reminds me of Job. It makes me think about what could have happened to him had he not sought the face of God during his trials. It also brought to mind the you-can-have-what-you-want doctrine of some televangelists and ministers. Very good writing and character development. I like the notes at the end, too.
Powerful message, one that needs to be taken to heart, as we all reach this point of confusion at one time or another.
