Poet, philosopher, and artist Kahlil Gibran is known and loved around the world for his spiritual poetry and mystical art, combined here in a special gift edition of his most popular work. A tale inspired largely by nature, The Prophet conveys the yearning for a unity of being that can only be achieved, according to the mystic tradition that Gibran followed, through love. Belonging to no single literary tradition, Gibran's inspiring book synthesizes the traditions of ancient times and modernity, East and West, and has been acclaimed by both Muslim and Christian cultures.

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
