Item Description...
Story of a Clam is a special, magical tale of an egotistical clam who thinks he and his community are the center of the universe. It offers us the artistry of the written word, creating an adventure in evolving consciousness. In an exciting series of events, the clam becomes aware that "there is more to life than you presently know and experience." As the clam shifts from his selfish, unfocused life in the community to an awareness of a bigger world, a new and exotic element appears. A "still, small voice" becomes increasingly familiar and produces new information regarding the mysteries of the natural and spiritual worlds. He continues with help and guidance from others in this life-changing adventure and, in the process, opens his mind to the great plan of which we are all a part. From this engaging teaching tale we realize that we are all faced with the limitations of our own minds and the narrowness of our cultural experience. We see only dimly the vast unseen, and understand less the Creator who lies behind all creation. We may think we have a fairly good understanding of life and "consciousness," but perhaps we are all at least part "clam."

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Avoid this book like the plague!  Jun 6, 2001
I'm a big fan of what the Templeton Foundation does (bridging the gap between science and religion), so I was interested when a fictional work came out by Templeton himself. Alas, the great man has no knack for philosophical allegories. In this numbingly symbolic tale, a smug clam named Columbus (get it? He's on a voyage of self-discovery) meets a clam named Agape (get it? Love helps us make those discoveries) who helps him understand his limitations. I kid you not. The story is actually about clams trying to look beyond familiar confines and open up to the greater world. Or something.

There are plenty of strained metaphors (Columbus refers to "The Book of Clams," a thinly-disguised stand-in for the Bible), long digressions in which Columbus ponders his state in life and what it's all about, and tortured quahog jokes. Whatever Templeton's trying to say, it just isn't working. This is one time when you're better off spending your money on beanie babies.
