內容簡介

《牧羊少年的奇幻之旅》作者保羅‧科賀爾全新力作!獻給現代讀者的古老智慧!

*  *  *
1099年7月14日,十字軍包圍了耶路撒冷,正準備攻下這座城。城內的男女老幼,不分年齡、信仰,全部聚集起來,為的是聆聽一位神祕的柯普特智者的箴言。這位智者召集了全城的人,要用真理帶領他們面對恐懼,他是這麼說的:

「從明天開始,和諧將會變成混亂,喜悅將被憂傷取代,戰爭將吞噬和平……我們沒有人知道明天會發生什麼事,因為每天有好事也有壞事發生。當你們發問時,請忘記外頭的軍隊跟心裡頭的恐懼。我們的人生功課不是為後人記錄下每天發生了什麼事,我們該關注的是每天的日常生活,還有我們必須面對的難題。」

於是城裡的人開始向智者發問,他們首先針對戰爭提問,問到失敗、敵人以及對戰,接著他們開始思考改變、忠誠、孤獨等概念,最後他們觸及的問題是美、愛、智慧、性、優雅以及未來。透過發問與思考,這群城裡的居民們在智者的帶領下,逐漸體悟到關於人生的智慧……

科賀爾的第22部作品是一個融合了小說與史實的故事,書中的柯普特智者是歷史上真實存在的人物,他的手稿在歿後數百年被發現,科賀爾在《Manuscript Found in Accra》一書中以這個史實為靈感進行重新詮釋,呈現人類永恆的價值,並藉由這個故事試圖讓讀者們知道,想要認識自己、看清自己的恐懼,以及自己對於未來的渴求,其實只需要往自己的內在所擁有的知識與信仰尋求就能找到答案。



The latest novel from the #1 internationally best-selling author of The Alchemist.

There is nothing wrong with anxiety.
Although we cannot control God’s time, it is part of the human condition to want to receive the thing we are waiting for as quickly as possible.
Or to drive away whatever is causing our fear. . . .
Anxiety was born in the very same moment as mankind. And since we will never be able to master it, we will have to learn to live with it—just as we have learned to live with storms.

July 14, 1099. Jerusalem awaits the invasion of the crusaders who have surrounded the city’s gates. There, inside the ancient city’s walls, men and women of every age and every faith have gathered to hear the wise words of a mysterious man known only as the Copt. He has summoned the townspeople to address their fears with truth: 

“Tomorrow, harmony will become discord. Joy will be replaced by grief. Peace will give way to war. . . . None of us can know what tomorrow will hold, because each day has its good and its bad moments. So, when you ask your questions, forget about the troops outside and the fear inside. Our task is not to leave a record of what happened on this date for those who will inherit the Earth; history will take care of that. Therefore, we will speak about our daily lives, about the difficulties we have had to face.” 

The people begin with questions about defeat, struggle, and the nature of their enemies; they contemplate the will to change and the virtues of loyalty and solitude; and they ultimately turn to questions of beauty, love, wisdom, sex, elegance, and what the future holds. “What is success?” poses the Copt. “It is being able to go to bed each night with your soul at peace.”

Now, these many centuries later, the wise man’s answers are a record of the human values that have endured throughout time. And, in Paulo Coelho’s hands, The Manuscript Found in Accra reveals that who we are, what we fear, and what we hope for the future come from the knowledge and belief that can be found within us, and not from the adversity that surrounds us.
