The Greatest Stories Ever Told

Sampurna Chattarji (Author)
Synopsis Creation and the fall. The tempter and the holy man. The saintly hero and the heroic child. Miracles, parables. These are the common threads that run through the world's great faiths, weaving a tapestry of belief that is at once immense and dazzling, innocent and wise. The stories recounted in this book echo and mirror each other, changing mysteriously, yet mysteriously staying the same. Noah rides out the flood in his Ark; Yima survives the snowstorm in his Vara. David vanquishes Goliath with a slingshot; Prahlad defeats evil with his goodness. Two princes forsake their families and their kingdoms-Prince Siddhartha becomes the Buddha, Prince Vardhamana Mahavira. The Prophet Muhammad receives revelation, alone on the top of a hill. Guru Nanak receives his as he walks, alone, into a river. Be it the five unending loaves or the one limitless morsel of rice, these stories are as much about our capacity for wonder as they are about the oneness of faith. The richness and vibrancy of Sampurna Chattarji's storytelling captures the magic and the passion of these ageless themes with a new intensity, reaffirming that the greatest stories are the ones that are eternal.
