about

In the ninth century b.c., the Phoenician princess Jezebel orders the execution of all the prophets who refuse to worship the pagan god Baal. Commanded by an angel of God to flee Israel, Elijah seeks safety in the land of Zarephath, where he unexpectedly finds true love with a young widow. But this newfound rapture is to be cut short, and Elijah sees all of his hopes and dreams irrevocably erased as he is swept into a whirlwind of events that threatens his very existence.

 

Written with the same masterful prose and clarity of vision that made The Alchemist an international phenomenon, The Fifth Mountain is a quietly moving account of a man touched by the hand of God who must triumph over his frustrations in a soul-shattering trial of faith.

Customer Reviews of The Fifth Mountain: A Novel

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely and inspiring This book has been highly recommended to me by a friend. Having read the Alchemist, I am surprised to find "The Fifth Mountain" to be based on Bible story and characters. Telling the story of Elijah and his calling to rebuild Akbar and one day to liberate Israel, Paulo Coelho elegantly spread the message of the struggle we have to go through in order to find our ultimate calling - for some, the blessing of God. Lovely read.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Will Read Again As usual Paulo Coelho comes through with more wisdom in this ancient tale! Will definitely read this again down the road as I always find more wisdom that I somehow missed the first time!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from For die hard fans of Coelho's style Not recommended for a first read on this author, but another spoonful of self-reflection through ancient waters.
