The Fire Bringer
SteinerBooks, 2009 - 126
After 30,000 years of torment, Prometheus has been released from his punishment for bringing fire to humankind. He now runs a small school outside of Athens where he tells his students his eyewitness account of humanity's creation. Meanwhile, up on Mt. Olympus, Zeus casts his gaze upon one of Prometheus's disciples, Chastia, who is engaged to Demetrios, a fellow student. However, Hera, the jealous spouse of Zeus, watches his every move.
The Fire Bringer takes readers on a journey that gives life to the stories of the great Olympian gods and goddesses. Discover what it means to be entrusted with the gift of fire, and why Prometheus betrayed his own king to save a lowly race of mortals. Learn about our Western mythological roots and experience these all-too-human archetypes.
