Meet the Author

Khalil Gibran was born on January 6, 1883 in the town of Bsharri which is called Lebanon today. He emigrated to the United States as a young man with his parents where he studied art and began his writing career. He is today celebrated as a literary hero but is considered a political and literary rebel in the Arab world.

He is best known in America for his book of essays The Prophet, which is thought of as early inspirational fiction. The book was first warmly received but gained in popularity in the 1930s and continued its popularity well into the 1960's.

Gibran had many other talents as well, he was a painter, writer, Poet, theologian, and sculptor just to name a few and considered just as successful in those genres as well.

It is one giant poem, which will probably say something new to you each time you read it.

A masterpiece

This is one of my all-time favorite reads. I have a traditional hard back copy, but enjoy the convenience of being able to tap into it's inspiration any time, any where thanks to my Nook app. The format for this particular version is just text...no frills, but because I have the book in hard back, the format is adequate to my needs.

I read this in the 60's at Bethany College and have collected copies from yard sales to give to friends. I have found no one who did not appreciate it. When you have finished this book, find the 'Complete Works of Kahlil Gibran,' awesome!

A beautiful book - everyone should have this - easy to read yet profound. Brings great sadness to see this son of Lebanon, now that we experience the devstation to his country in recent years becaue of hard-line fundamentalists

Gilbran is incredible, his words compliment the soul's desire to be at peace with itself. It is a blueprint for knowledge with a foundation of peace. One of my favorite passages is when a young child says to the prophet,'Speak to us of talking'. The prophet replies,'We only speak when we cease to be at peace with our thoughts'. How true is that.? It really is a phenomenal book.

I began reading this book when I was ten after my mother and step-father used a chapter of it for their wedding vows. I've read it many times since then and each time I got a new meaning from it.

In the realm of spiritual writing I can not think of another book that has changed my life on the deepest level. In its pages you will find a simple and poetic prose that reaches to the summit of the soul's natural splendor. Also, you will learn life's lessons in a most beautiful way - through the poet's art of symbols and metaphor.

I read this book when I was 18 years old and it struck a nerve in me that I have never felt before by reading a book. It made me think about my life and the things that were going on at that particular point in my life. He made me break down my life and the things that were going on in it
