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.

Words of wisdom

This is a fantastic outlook on life. Beautiful writing and style. It is an enchanting story, that resonates in the modern era, despite its age. The voice of the actor is deep and knowledgeable, lending itself well to the tale. I will be listening to this again, to pick up on the pearls of wisdom I may have missed first time around.

Just read it. The book is short and free.

Hopefully I can return this book. I didn't realize how short of a read it is, and that the text is free.

pointless

I really wonder what all the hype is about this bit of prose.... Any attribution of this work as philospohy or theology is mistaken as far as I am concerned since it is simply a recitaion of random bits of Eastern, and Western ideas presented in an Arab culture's storytelling format. Very superficial and lacks profound content even though is pretends such.

Excellent book!

I loved every single word that was written here by Khalil Gibran. The narrator Chris MacDonnell did an excellent job! Every single word, every syllable, spoke directly to my heart. I felt it reverberate in the very depths of my soul.
