Nice story about the journey of a Prophet
on 3 October 2000
Paulo has near enough always embarked on a religious theme within this book & this book is no different. It is a story about a Prophet in the troubled land of Jeruselum who is forced into a small village & taken in by a widowed women. At first the village people perceive him as an intruder but after bringing back to life the son of the widow & surviving his execution he becomes the villages wise man & salvation. It is a lovely story with a strong religious theme. I like Paulo's books & this is also good but no way as good as 'The Alchemist' which is one of my all time favourite stories.
