This paper examines the quest for fulfillment of Destiny as it is presented in the book Alchemist written by Paulo Coelho. The modern thinkers explain the concept of human Destiny as self-transcendence. The paper focuses on a theological endeavor within the tradition which Santiago, the protagonist of the book follows. The ethnocentric understanding of human nature is the belief that man was created as of the image of God. Therefore, human life will also be followed and reached to the Destiny in the fruitful relationship. The life of Santiago itself reveals how Paulo Coelho imagines the quest of the human being for achieving the fortune of his expectation.
