  1. When I first picked up the book, I compared it to Khalil Gibran s The Profit I was a bit disillusioned, and stopped reading for a bit Having some time one day, I picked up the book again with the hope that I would finish it quickly and move on to the next read How mistaken I was The 3 chapters I read that day were directly addressing issues I was experiencing at the time This book is definitely one you want to read slowly, ponder on the messages and hopefully apply to your life Its a book you wa [...]

  2. 4859 1099 492 , , 3 If you are never alone, you cannot know yourself Excessive caution destroys the soul and the heart, because living is an act of courage, and an act of courage is always an act of love The greatest gift God gave us is the power to make decisions In desperate attempt to give meaning to life, many turn to religion, because a struggle in the name of a faith is always a justification for some grand action that could transform the world We are doing God s work, they tell themselves [...]

  3. Since I first read The Alchemist, I ve always loved Paulo Coelho s books I think this book is a MUST READ for every single soul on earth no matter which your religion or believes you ve got It contains all the wisdom that should be taught in schools, instead of losing hours with stupid subjects about religion or ethics, it contains the essence of life The author is humboldt enough to recognise that this is not his writing, which makes him even greater than what I thought.It is just a transcripti [...]

  4. This was a First Reader Win, thanks.I would have adored this book when I was 17 or even 20 But alas, I am much, much, much older than that now and less fond than I was then of books full of quotable Words Of Wisdom.The premise of the book is poignante people are gathered before a time of great struggle and potential endings and yeah, sure, it could well be a parable of our times, why not They are of many faithsJewish, Christian, and Muslim, there in the lovely city of Jerusalem where in 1099 eve [...]

  5. PreambleThe Nag Hammadi manuscripts, The Dead Sea Scrolls and the Apocryphal Gospels have been for some years a source of a salutary religious and academic debate even, from a fiction perspective, we could include Barbara Thiering thesis of a married Jesus , with kids and much else these debates BUT somehow, Coelho managed to find another manuscript Accra s and this one brings nothing of salutary, in my view It s not a novel Supposedly, it s a sort of discourses of a wise man to the people I ve [...]

  6. I really loved The Alchemist and Paulo Coelho shares deep wisdom within the story This time the story is much secondary as the different groups of people inside the walls of Jerusalem gather to hear the wisdom of a Greek man simply known as The Copt Tomorrow most will die so tonight they ask questions, make observations and listen to the Greek s wisdom He speaks of love, life, death, regrets, family, friends, home, fear, faith and much, much .The book appeals to not only Christian, but also Jew [...]

  8. The setting for this latest offering by Paulo Coelho is in Jerusalem The date is July 14, 1099 On this date, the city was held by the Fatimids Outside the city, the Crusaders are to make their final assault and enter the city Most of the inhabitants of the city at this time profess one of the three Abrahamic religions Judaism, Christianity, and Islam Knowing that the Crusaders will soon attack, the people, vexed with uncertainty, are told to gather around a wise Greek simply known as the Copt So [...]

  9. I embarked with Paulo Coelho on this spiritual and philosophical voyage, he took me deep down into the unfathomable depth of wisdom and guided me to collect the lost pearls of human s virtue I feel profound reverence for his philosophical insights, and the way he sees the world, the way he interprets things This book contains twenty powerful spiritual lessons over topics like beauty, elegance, luck, loyalty, enemies, defeat, forgiveness, anxiety etc These topics having the intellectual vision an [...]

  10. Es un libro que nos da, no uno, si no muchos mensajes directos, sin rodeos, nos ense a que todo lo que hacemos tiene algo positivo, e incluso lo que no nos atrevemos a hacer por prejuicios de terceras personas, son ataduras que no nos dejan apreciar el valor de nuestras acciones, nos ense a a enfrentar las batallas m s dif ciles pensando que el pasado ya fue y ya aprendimos de l o simplememte dejamos ir la ense ansa por miedo a actuar, y que el futuro aun no ha llegado pero que tenemos que const [...]

  11. I really enjoyed Manuscript Found in Accra This is a book that is full of uplifting, timeless wisdom It is the type of book that can be read quickly, but it is really best read and processed slowly and revisited from time to time I am sure that I will re read it again in the future, so it is a welcome addition to my library I received a free copy of this book through the First Reads program.

  12. Judging by the quotes I ve seen from some of Coelho s other work, philosophical and mindful ways of living are his wheelhouse, and perhaps Manuscript in Accra is a condensed, direct version of those ideas I would have to read his other books to say so with any certainty Maybe this book isn t for everyone, but I liked it well enough to want to properly devour a full on Coelho novel in the near future My full review appears on Glorified Love Letters.

  13. It s amazing to think how many manuscripts such as these were lost to us generations ago that many scholars thoughts and advice are lost to the ravages of time In 1099, the mysterious Copt is speaking to a crowd awaiting attack In the face of death, the Copt shares his views on life Some ask if they shouldn t instead be focused on preparing for battle, to which Copt replies, Our task is not to leave a record of what happened on this date history will take care of that Therefore, we will speak ab [...]

  14. Blah blah blahCoelho is babbling and moralizing and what not Just like a new literary Osho with his religious philosophical sh t Not for my criminal mind.I liked some of his previous books, and there are some I didn t enjoy Whether this is worst of his books I can not say, but it is worst I ve read But those who consider Coelho some kind of religious leader or messiah and admire and believe in everything he says will certainly love it.

  15. As with all Paulo Coelho s writings, I just loved the knowledge and wisdom imparted in this book In the style of Gibran s The Prophet it gives a teacher student feel to it Lots of food for thought and depth Another winner I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and look forward to reading it again.

  17. I felt like book was trying to be too much at once and as a result, it was not as successful as it could have been as a fictional STORY or a well being self help book I began with the impression that this would be some historical fiction history re write and in some ways it is I particularly enjoy how each chapter is an answer to a question very parable like, and it takes a narrative tone that the Bible has in many instances However, there are no real characters that carry over chapter to chapte [...]

  18. It s the first Coelho book I ve read that might equal The Alchemist for message and enjoyment.Honestly, though, it s like a modern language version of Gibran s The Prophet It s just got people on the eve of an assault asking questions of a religious man, instead of people asking a religious man questions on the eve of his departure to another land I want to own this book, read it slowly and write in the margins.Do I think it s brilliant and amazing No, because it s too much like The Prophet to c [...]
