Description

From the author of the critically acclaimed, award-winning best seller Ishmael and its sequel, My Ishmael, comes a powerful novel with one of the most profound spiritual testaments of our time.

“A compelling ‘humantale’ that will unglue, stun, shock, and rearrange everything you’ve learned and assume about Western civilization and our future.” (Paul Hawken, author of The Ecology of Commerce)

Father Jared Osborne has received an extraordinary assignment from his superiors: Investigate an itinerant preacher stirring up deep trouble in Central Europe. His followers call him B, but his enemies say he’s something else: the Antichrist. However, the man Osborne tracks across a landscape of bars, cabarets, and seedy meeting halls is no blasphemous monster - though an earlier era would undoubtedly have rushed him to the burning stake. For B claims to be enunciating a gospel written not on any stone or parchment but in our very genes, opening up a spiritual direction for humanity that would have been unimaginable to any of the prophets or saviors of traditional religion. Pressed by his superiors for a judgement, Osborne is driven to penetrate B’s inner circle, where he soon finds himself an anguished collaborator in the dismantling of his own religious foundations. 

More than a masterful novel of adventure and suspense, The Story of B is a rich source of compelling ideas from an author who challenges us to rethink our most cherished beliefs.

Worthwhile read

Really into the ideas. The story is a good vessel for sharing them. Some of the dialogue is just unnatural. I still think everyone should read this and do some introspective thinking.

Insufferable turd

Imagine your baked 15yo nephew who watched 2 videos of some YouTube clown recapping 70s pop philosophy starts explaining the universe to you while you are stuck in traffic. I gave this 3 hours and would rather listen to a baby cry.

Weak characters puking weak talking points over and over and over… non existent plot, and over and over…

I’m angry at how bad this is. Don’t know how it ends, but I’m sure it’s terrible. I’d be pissed if this was included, but I spent a credit on it. They can’t all be gold, but damn.

Uh…I didn’t like it.

Now, I AM B

This "story" draws you to examine what you have been taught, what you have believed, and what you believe after this experience in challenging the foundations of religious philosophical tenets. You are tasked with CHANGE WITHIN YOURSELF. Be sure to listen to the presentations after the story.

Required reading!

This book is beautifully written, intellectually exciting, and deeply needed in these times.
I first read this book about 15 years ago, and just finished listening to the audio version, and I am struck once again by the marvelous craftsmanship of dear Daniel Quinn. I am so grateful that this book is in the world.
I’ve considered myself an enema stuff sorts, with this belief said, if you could call it that, growing stronger and stronger over the last five years. This book actually gives me the language to speak about some of the truths and longing cluttering around in my heart. I feel this is necessary reading, I wish everyone I know would read this book. I wish they would teach this in school. Perhaps, we can join together and learn to be leavers again.....

Eye Opening

I didn’t think it was possible to follow up Ishmael, but somehow Daniel Quinn managed. The Story of B is a thought provoking masterpiece.

lecture

another college philosophy class told through a poorly written fictional narrative. pedantic and smug, yet ultimately offering nothing to the reader. no new information. no wisdom. no enlightenment. just a liberal view of the world. of course I agree with much of it, but thats kind of my point. it spends hours touting the obvious as if it were some big secret. meh.

worth your time

narrator was great. content thought provoking. kept skipping back to one spot instead of syncing where I left off, which was annoying.
