Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
This is an inspirational, allegorical guide to living. "The Prophet" is the most famous work of religious fiction in the twentieth century and had sold millions of copies in more than twenty languages. Gibran has his protagonist, called Simply the prophet, deliver spiritual, yet practical homilies on a wide variety of topics central to daily life: love; marriage and children; work and play; possessions; beauty; truth; joy and sorrow; death; and many more.

Review:
In a distant, timeless place, a mysterious prophet walks the sands. At the moment of his departure, he wishes to offer the people gifts but possesses nothing. The people gather round, each asks a question of the heart, and the man's wisdom is his gift. It is Gibran's gift to us, as well, for Gibran's prophet is rivaled in his wisdom only by the founders of the world's great religions. On the most basic topics--marriage, children, friendship, work, pleasure--his words have a power and lucidity that in another era would surely have provoked the description "divinely inspired." Free of dogma, free of power structures and metaphysics, consider these poetic, moving aphorisms a 20th-century supplement to all sacred traditions--as millions of other readers already have. --Brian Bruya
