** spoiler alert ** Review from a Christian perspective, based on the biblical themes and stories related in the book.

Entertaining tale that reminds us to actively seek, discover and live the life that God has planned for us, being courageous and diligent in fulfilling this destiny and our dream. God will lead us on this journey and we must listen to his instructions and follow his signs as he guides us on our way. Wisdom, courage, love and understanding may be gained along the path, which is fraught with obstacles. Most importantly, our heart has to be in the right place (with God) because, as the alchemist (and Jesus) says, "Where your treasure is, there also will be your heart".
