Overview

The Vision: Reflections on the Way of the Soul brings together Kahlil Gibran's Arabic writings concerned with the spiritual life. In twenty-four meditations, essays, and prose poems, Gibran expounds his unique philosophy of life while discussing such perennial themes as Beauty, Nature, Hidden Realities, Human Unity, Tragedy, Pride, Death, and the Immortality of the Soul.
Gibran's religious vision is world-embracing and ecumenical. He read widely and was inspired by Buddhism, Vedanta, American Transcendentalists, and Nietzsche, along with his primary influences of Eastern Christianity, Islam, and the folk traditions of his native Near Eastern culture. His fervent belief in humanity's common heritage and shared destiny has made his writings popular the world over and classics of modern religious literature.

Juan Cole's stunning and lyric translation revives Gibran's passionate stories of spiritual transcendence through love and suffering.
