Theo’s Odyssey

Catherine Clement

Does for spirituality what Sophie’s World did for philosophy.

  • Theo is fourteen, very clever, reads a lot, loves computer games and the Greek myths. But then, suddenly, he falls ill. His rich aunt Martha decides that they must roam the world to find a cure for his malaise.
  • What follows is a tour of the world’s religions and religious sites, with the sceptical, quizzical Theo being shown the varieties and depths of faith that exist in other places, other cultures.
  • All this is handled with real style, pace, wit and clarity. The book is a thoroughly enjoyable introduction to why and how people believe in their God – even Dave Allen would have liked it.
