July 14, 1099. Jerusalem awaits the invasion of the crusaders who have surrounded the city's gates. There, inside the ancient city's walls, men and women of every age and every faith have gathered to hear the wise words of a mysterious man known only as the Copt. He has summoned the townspeople to address their fears with truth.
Manuscript Found in Accra is the perfect book for anyone looking for direction in their life. If you've read the summary you know that this book is about a man, Copt, who is addressing townspeople who are under the threat of invasion looking for wisdom for their problems. He addresses issues such as defeat, solitude, fear, beauty, and so much more. This book reads much like a parable from the Bible. Coelho has written a book that will appeal to all ages, from young to old, you can take away a message from this book. Although I can't help but think this would be a great gift for kids graduating from high school or college. I think fans of Coelho's others books such as, The Alchemist will enjoy his latest book.
