This book offers a lot of wisdom! Another parable on "the meaning of life" and finding and sticking to one's life purpose, all told in an exotic adventure story wherein a simple shepherd seeks his fortune. Loved the many references to deep Christian teaching and the great respect afforded to religions of the world.
