COELHO (PAULO) MANUSCRIPT FOUND IN ACCRA
The simplest things in life are the most extraordinary. Let them reveal themselves. 1099: On the eve of the sacking of Jerusalem, a group of people gathers around a wise old man known only as The Copt. In order to preserve and save the spirit of the city - not the buildings or its history, but it's wisdom and learnings - they ask him questions, as ancient Greek students did with their philosopher teachers. To each question he gives a simple, yet profoundly powerful answer, with guidance as to how we might live and the principles to abide by so as to live a happy and enlightened life. These students will take his teachings into the world so that this wisdom will endure beyond the Crusaders' arrival and the destruction of the city. In Paulo's signature style, this short volume offers inspiration, solace, encouragement and wisdom that will enrich anyone's life. Deceptively simple yet incredibly powerful, this is the perfect gift for anyone who has ever asked 'why?'
