No hay arma más poderosa que las palabras
14 de julio de 1099. Mientras Jerusalén se prepara para la invasión de los cruzados, un griego convoca una reunión con los jóvenes y los viejos, los hombres y las mujeres de la ciudad. El misterioso hombre, conocido por todos como Copta, no busca unirse a ninguna religión en particular, pero guarda en su memoria todo lo que ha escuchado para poder transmitirlo a las generaciones futuras.
“A partir de mañana, lo que era armonía se transformará en discordia. Lo que era alegría será sustituido por luto. Lo que era paz dará lugar a una guerra”, dijo Copta.
“Nadie sabe lo que nos reserva el mañana, porque cada día trae su mal o su bien”, siguió. “Por lo tanto, al preguntar lo que desean saber, olvidarán a las tropas que están allá afuera y el miedo que traen dentro. Nuestro legado no será decir a aquellos que heredarán la tierra lo que sucedió el día de hoy; la historia se encargará de hacerlo. Hablaremos, entonces, de nuestra vida cotidiana, de las dificultades que nos vimos obligados a enfrentar”.
Reunidos en la plaza, mientras esperan el ataque enemigo, la gente empieza a preguntar. Le preguntan acerca de los verdaderos enemigos, la derrota, la soledad. Le hacen preguntas sobre la lucha, el cambio, la belleza, el camino a seguir. Y después le preguntan sobre el amor, la lealtad, el destino, el sexo y la elegancia, el miedo, la ansiedad, la sabiduría y lo que aguarda en el futuro —todo esto y más.
Y Copta les contestó.
Ahora, casi mil años más tarde, las respuestas de este hombre sabio siguen siendo validas, y El manuscrito encontrando en Accra nos muestra los inextinguibles valores que quedan después de que todo ha sido destruido.

Baker & Taylor
As the people of Jerusalem--Christians, Jews, and Muslims alike--await attack and inevitable slaughter during the Crusades, they gather around a wise man who answers their questions and teaches them in parables about love, faith, and other topics.

Random House Spanish
A novel of philosophical reflection set in Jerusalem during the time of the Crusades. Here a community of Christians, Arabs, and Jews who have long lived together harmoniously have been warned of an imminent attack and certain destruction. Contemplating their demise, the community assembles to seek the wise counsel of a Greek Copt, who imports comforting and guiding wisdom on the enduring attributes of human character. The novel unfolds as a sequence of parables on love, faith, sex, friendship, beauty, bravery, loyalty, and success.
The latest novel from #1 internationally bestselling author Paulo Coelho is a classic of inspiration and reflection, a meditation on life, love, and the significance of change. (Manuscript Found in Accra--Spanish-language edition).
