Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0781432960, Hardcover)

Once upon a time in the enchanting land of India, a wealthy jewel merchant went on a long journey.

He is soon joined by a would-be thief who hopes to befriend him and steal his fortune! and nbsp; But the wise merchant, realizing what his companion's intentions are, has a surprise in store for the thief, for he offers him a treasure far greater than jewels.

Adapting an ancient Indian folktale, Ravi Zacharias has created a delightful modern parable about life's true riches.
