Elijah's Coin: A Lesson for Life
That question is at the heart of Elijah's Coin, a thoughtful fable about one young man's descent into a life of crime... until he discovers an unlikely mentor, who begins to teach him a new philosophy of life. It's a philosophy not so much of words as of deeds. The lessons, therefore, prove to be indirect and not fully understood until they are lived. The point is not to state what you believe but to become what you believe. In doing so, you will come to lead a fulfilling and prosperous life. You'll find that life is not about you but about others and that generosity is repaid in kind.
Elijah's Coin asks readers to reflect even as they are entertained by a fast-moving, suspenseful story. Ultimately, the book confronts the reader with the possibility — and the opportunity &mdash of inner change. Learn the message, then pay it forward.
Elijah's Coin is about the life of Tom who is an angry college freshman heading for a life of crime. His plans of crimes are ruined by Elijah King and night watchman for a sportsware store. Elijah teachs him about life and what it is to truely live it.
This book was amazing and written very well. It was heartfelt and though I wouldn't call if a "Lesson For Life" it is still really good and can be enjoyed for readers of all ages (except really little kids of course). I enjoy watching the character Tom grow up and mature right in front of your eyes, but at some parts it gets kind of repetitve but it gets better and better after.
