Immerse yourself in an electrifying reading experience like no other -- international bestselling author Paulo Coelho's "The Fifth Mountain." A stunning novel in the tradition of the highly acclaimed "The Alchemist, " this is Coelho's daring retelling of the prophet Elijah. During the chaos of the ninth century B.C., Jezebel, wife to Israel's ruler, orders the execution of all prophets who refuse to worship the pagan god Baal. The young prophet Elijah, commanded by an angel of God to flee Israel, seeks safety in the land of Zarephath, where he unexpectedly finds true love with a young widow. But this new-found rapture is to be cut short, and Elijah sees all of his hopes and dreams irrevocably erased. What follows is sure to be viewed as Coelho's literary milestone: the 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.

Inspired by a circumstance that forever altered Coelho's own life, "The Fifth Mountain" is a testament to the truth that tragedy in life should not be considered a punishment but a challenge of the spirit. Gorgeous in its narrative and unforgettable in its prose, "The Fifth Mountain" teaches without being sanctimonious. This is a timeless story for the ages, a tale of the past that resonates powerfully for today's readers.

Back cover copy

Inspirado en un breve pasaje de la Biblia ( I Reyes 18, 8-24 ), La Qunita Montaña cuneta 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 dias, vuelve a sorprendernos con una novela tan fascinante como inolvidable.
