Synopsis: Jacob's Ladder is a small book filled with wonderfully big ideas. Noah benShea returns with his beloved and wise Jacob to the internationally bestselling Jacob the Baker series. Here truly is wisdom for the heart's ascent. Jacob is a baker and a sage who once wrote little notes to himself in an effort to help him make sense of life. A humble man, he lived anonymously in quiet reflection--until one of his notes was acitdentally baked into a loaf of bread. When the secret of Jacob's truth and kindness were discovered, people flocked to him with the questions, great and small, troubling their souls. The village children came after school to sit on the flour sacks and hear his stories. All of this attention made it impossible for Jacob to live his quiet life and forced him from his community. But Jacob's destiny as a gentle teacher would not be denied. Now, Jacob has returned home, and something stirring in his heart now leads him down an altogether new path: fatherhood. In Jacob's Ladder a dusty boy arrives at Jacob's door, note in hand, waiting. It is the dying wish of an old friend that Jacob take in this orphan, Jonah--to teach him, to guide him--until the day Jonah is ready to sit at the Council of Sages. In this sometimes difficult and enlightening adventure of the heart, Jacob discovers that "a teacher loves teaching. A father teaches love. Teaching I know. Loving, I'm learning." Jacob's Ladder is a book that you can open on any page and be rewarded. Jacob speaks to all of us, and we are wiser for listening. He is a sage of the heart. Wisdom, parables, aphorisms, and wonderful stories lead us up Jacob's Ladder. Join Jacob and young Jonah as they together seek to understand their place in life. This charming and deceptively simple story is rich with spirited characters, enriching new themes and valuable insights. "The most important things in life aren't things," says Jacob, who teaches about the importance of love and forgiveness, responsibility and the subtle depths of parenting, growing older and becoming young, spirituality and work, loss and laughter, and so much more. Jacob's Ladder is a heartwarming, moving fable; Jacob friends--new and old--will love this new chapter in his life. Noah benShea's most accomplished work, it is meant to be cherished, shared and read again and again.
From the Publisher:
Drifting to me from the ninth floor kitchen is the scent of hot fresh bagels just delivered from the delicatessen down the street here from Random House on 3rd Ave in NYC. Our Friday morning breakfast. Which brings me to think about the philosopher/baker Jacob at work. When you hold this fourth collection of Jacob's thoughts in your hands, and open its cover to the first pages, I know you will become hungry, body and soul. From the first words, there is a promise of sustenance to come, in these warm and clear stories proferred from the timeless village bakery, where Jacob and his new young assistant Jonah knead and haul and fire fresh good bread into being. I'm going to go eat my breakfast. But I suggest that you come, sit down with Jacob and enfold yourself in his humble tales and in the aroma of his baking, in the soul-fortifying goodness of the wisdom Jacob has to offer as he ushers the loaves from the woodburning stove.
Each of the lessons in Jacob's Ladder will fill your soul, will inspire, nutrify, and comfort.
