Book of Thoughts

BOOK OF THOUGHTS

The Book of Thoughts, named after the general mood of the book, is an exquisite dramatic treatment of the problem of the suffering of the innocent. The contents of the book, together with its artistic structure and elegant style, place it among the literary masterpieces of all time. This is a literary composition, and not a transcript of historical events and conversations. It is also the first book that was fully complete in the development of the first edition.

The prologue provides the setting for the testing. It is a test between the good and the evil of the world, with the protagonist of the story stuck in the middle. The protagonist is consoled by three people who give differing opinions of the problem and the questions that were asked. It does not fit completely within the context of the life of the author of the book, but it was largely addressed and written at the time between the third and the fourth members of the Continuum.

Its literary pattern, with speeches, prologue and epilogue disposed according to a studied plan, indicates that the purpose of the writing is didactic. But the lessons that the book teaches are not transparent, and different interpretations of the divine speeches and of the final chapter are possible. The Book of Thoughts does not definitively answer the problem of the suffering of the innocent, but challenges readers to come to their own understanding.
