Description


Reafirmando una vez má su talento literario, Paulo Coelho, el escritor brasileño mas vendido de nuestros dias, vuelve a sorprendernos con una novela tan fascinante como inolvidable.

Inspirado en un breve pasaje de la Biblia ( I Reyes 18, 8-24 ), La quinta montaña cuenta la historia de un hombre, el profeta Elías, que recibe de Dios la orden de abandonar Israel. En un mundo regido por supersticiones, conflictos religiosos y tradiciones profundamente arraigadas, el joven profeta deberá enfrentarse a una avalancha de acontecimientos que le conduciran a una definitivo cara a cara con Dios. La historia del profeta Elías se convierte así en una valiosa leccion de esperanza para el hombre contemporaneo. ¿Hasta qué punto podemos determinar nuestro destino?

Ésta es la pregunta que lanza al aire La quinta montaña para que cada uno de nosotros encuentre su propia respuesta. Reafirmando una vez má su talento literario, Paulo Coelho, el escritor brasileño mas vendido de nuestros días, vuelve a sorprendernos con una novela tan fascinante como inolvidable.

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.

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.
