9780553379013: The Story of B

The Story of B combines Daniel Quinn's provocative and visionary ideas with a masterfully plotted story of adventure and suspense in this stunning, resonant novel that is sure to stay with readers long after they have finished the last page. Father Jared Osborne--bound by a centuries-old mandate held by his order to know before all others that the Antichrist is among us--is sent to Europe on a mission to find a peripatetic preacher whose radical message is attracting a growing circle of followers. The target of Osborne's investigation is an American known only as B. He isn't teaching New Age platitudes or building a fanatical following; instead, he is quietly uncovering the hidden history of our planet, redefining the fall of man, and retracing a path of human spirituality that extends millions of years into the past. From the beginning, Fr. Osborne is stunned, outraged, and awed by the simplicity and profundity of B's teachings. Is B merely a heretic--or is he the Antichrist sent to seduce humanity not with wickedness, but with ideas more alluring than those of traditional religion? With surprising twists and fascinating characters, The Story of B answers this question as it sends readers on an intellectual journey that will forever change the way they view spirituality, human history, and, indeed, the state of our present world.

From the Publisher:

A new novel by the author of Ishmael

"Daniel Quinn has written two of the most unnerving and transformative books inrecent memory. The first was Ishmael; The Story of B is theother, a compelling `humantale' that will unglue, stun, shock, and rearrangeeverything you've learned and assume about Western civilization and ourfuture."
--Paul Hawken, author of The Ecology of Commerce

"One of the most important storytellers of our age, Daniel Quinn, in TheStory of B, continues the journey begun so beautifully with Ishmael.Whether or not you agree with every word, there is no doubt that `B' offers usa unique opportunity--to think together about the unquestioned beliefs andassumptions that have shaped our culture over the past 10,000 years and thatwill, if they remain unquestioned, keep us on a path that seems increasinglyunsustainable."
--Peter M. Senge, author of The Fifth Discipline

Descrizione libro Bantam Doubleday Dell Publishing Group Inc, United States, 1997. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book. Father Osborne is bound by a covert centuries-old mandate held by his religious order: to know before all others that the Antichrist is among us - and to try to suppress and destroy him. Every fifty years or so, a new candidate emerges and is investigated, despite the fact that they ve always proved to be harmless - until now. The target of Osborne s investigation is an American known to his followers only as B. He isn t teaching meditation or goddess worship, faith healing or New Age spiritualism. He isn t out to make money or build a fanatical following. Instead he is quietly uncovering the hidden history of our planet, redefining the fall of man, and retracing a path of human spirituality that extends millions of years into the past. Osborne follows B s elusive trail from a dead end in Salzburg to an existentialist cabaret in Munich to a candlelit retreat in the subcellar of dilapidated theater, where he first encounters the mysterious B and his intriguing female colleague, Shirin. From the beginning, Osborne is stunned, outraged, and awed by the originality and power of B s teaching. Is B merely a heretic - or is he the Antichrist sent to seduce humanity not with wickedness but with ideas more alluring than those of traditional religion? Pressed by his superiors for a judgment, Osborne is driven to penetrate B s inner circle. There, as B s chosen disciple, he soon finds himself an anguished collaborator in the dismantling of his own religious foundations. Codice libro della libreria AAS9780553379013
