Overview

Still one of Gibran’s most well-loved works over 70 years after its original publication, Jesus the Son of Man is a striking fictional portrait of Christ as seen through the eyes of his contemporaries. Depicting a variety of famous figures, from Mary Magdalen to Pontius Pilate, Gibran’s spellbinding collection of narratives combine historical authority with the supreme eloquence that his admirers hold so dear. Fully conscious of the social, political, and religious realities of Palestine and Rome at the time, and at home with the local traditions and language, Gibran effortlessly evokes the spellbinding power of Christ’s presence upon his associates. Presented in an attractive gift format and accompanied by Gibran’s original artwork, this new edition allows Gibran's inspirational account of Christ to be heard once more. Kahlil Gibran (1883 – 1931) was one of the 20th century’s most inspirational poets, authors, and artists. He drew upon his personal faith to write such bestsellers as The Prophet, the bestselling book of the 20th century.
