One of the best books "besides the BIBLE", that i've ever read! This book truely transformed my spiritual being, my prescence, and the way i live my daily life. It's like a sharpening stone the you sharpen a knife with, only the knife here is your sword, your temple. Be prepared though, for following the principal's listed in this book, you will begin to discover elements within you that will create a war within your soul. A constant battle 24/7, that will begin to pull you in so many directions AT THE SAME TIME, that at times
you literally won't be able to move. A Paradox of event's that scripture simply list as "TRIALS BY FIRE".
Then at times you will find yourself on the battlefield in complete surrendor, laying down your life, to pick it up again. Situations that will begin to seperate you from the worldly veiw, and bring you into the light. Situations that will also create a constant battle of discernment, mapping you within a depth of scripture that will seperate you from everyone around you. Your very own wilderness journey where God splits the sea within your soul and leads you out of the captivity within. WOW. There is so much more to write, and as you read the book over and over again, you will begin to discover deeper and deeper into who God knit you in your mothers womb to become. OUCH! But in a joyfull experience of transformation!
A must buy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! David Fett
PS- The Alchemist is great too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

About the author (2006)

Paulo Coelho was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on August 24, 1947. As a teenager, he wanted to become a writer, but his parents wanted him to pursue a more substantial and secure career. At the age of 17, his introversion and opposition to his parents led them to commit him to a mental institution. He escaped three times before being released at the age of 20. Once released, he abandoned his ideas of becoming a writer and enrolled in law school to please his parents. He stayed in law school for one year. In 1986, Coelho walked the 500-plus mile Road of Santiago de Compostela in northwestern Spain, a turning point in his life. On the path, he had a spiritual awakening, which he described in his book The Pilgrimage. Before becoming a full-time author, he worked as theatre director and actor, lyricist, and journalist. He wrote song lyrics for many famous performers in Brazilian music including Elis Regina, Rita Lee, and Raul Seixas. His first book, Hell Archives, was published in 1982. He has written over 25 books since then including The Alchemist, Brida, The Fifth Mountain, The Devil and Miss Prym, Eleven Minutes, The Zahir, The Witch of Portobello, Like a Flowing River, and Adultery. He received numerous awards including Las Pergolas Prize, The Budapest Prize, Nielsen Gold Book Award, and the Grand Prix Litteraire Elle. In 1996, he founded the Paulo Coelho Institute, which provides aid to children and elderly people with financial problems. In 2007, Coelho was named a Messenger of Peace to the United Nations.
