Publisher's Summary

The Prophet is perhaps the most cherished inspirational and enlightening work in the world.

Almustafa, the chosen and beloved, must leave the port of Orphalese upon the ship he has waited upon for 12 years. As he descends to the waterfront, the people of Orphalese gather to question him and hear his wisdom on important topics of their daily lives.

Kahlil Gibran's masterpiece is a series of enlightening, philosophical answers to those questions. The inspirational and spiritual words of The Prophet, written in an almost Biblical, poetic style, reveal deep insights into each of the subjects in question.

There are philosophies on love, marriage, children, giving, eating and drinking, work, joy and sorrow, housing, clothes, buying and selling, crime and punishment, laws, freedom, reason and passion, pain, self-knowledge, teaching, friendship, talking, time, good and evil, prayer, pleasure, beauty, religion, and death. For many, this work provides a positive philosophy and a calm refuge andfor living life in today's harsh world.

Excellent. A masterpiece!

This is a fine production of Gibran's remarkable work. Highly recommended. The narrator reads without pretention yet with sensitivity and understanding. He really captures the inspirational mood of the writing in his delivery. I was prepared to be disappointed but I'm surprised at how connected I felt to this interpretation.
