There are many religious themes and self-help/PMA messages imbedded throughout. First of all, theologically it is presenting a ‘pantheistic’ view of God and creation. The major lesson throughout is that one should continue to pursue ones ‘Personal Legend or Myth’. That everyone is presented with a personal vision or purpose, that one is obligated to seek after. That all creation will conspire to help one along the way, in the form of ‘omens’ that one must learn to discern and follow. The story also decries those who have given up on their vision, and accepted a lesser outcome.
From a Christian view, this book has many themes and religious ideas that cannot be supported. Nevertheless, a Christian can enjoy the ride and come away with encouragement to follow your own God given vision, and continue along the way to seek the advise of the Holy Spirit. It is Biblical not to give up, but to continue in faithfulness to the end; and it is Biblical, that God will help you in the process. God bless you!!! :):)
