Mohan is a poor man who sells fruit door to door. Raj is a rich man who inherited his family’s jewelry business. Mohan knows that Raj is rich, and he decides to steal the jewelry the next time Raj takes his yearly journey. What Mohan doesn’t know is that he will receive treasure, but not the kind that can be carried in a bag or kept under a pillow. In The Merchant and the Thief, Ravi Zacharias takes a clever ancient Indian folk tale and weaves into it a timeless message children will not soon forget.
