Eye of the Prophet by Kahlil Gibran

Book Description

"The Eye of the Prophet" is a luminous collection of Gibran's writings translated from Arabic into French and now into English. Here the author is the poetic, philosophical moralist, grounded in Islam, Buddhism, and Christianity, seeking the best in people, refusing to separate humankind from the natural world. Ordinary work and life, he says, has the potential to be inherently noble, if we can learn to enact our affairs with the sublimity of nature's creations. Gibran's descriptions celebrate the dignity and freedom of animals, birds, the seasons, oceans, clouds. His is a poet's eye; he abhors the "tentacles of government" and calls on citizens to question all ideologies. In this book he writes about life's great moments and passages (The First Kiss, The First Glance, The Mystery of Love, Youth); eternal essences (Earth, The Nature of Woman, Marriage, Love, Truth, Poetry), and grapples with nationalism, religion, and spiritual growth. "The" "Eye of the Prophet" blends Christian, Muslim, and Buddhist ideals into a great spiritual tapestry that transcends all cultural divisions. With its vibrant, rhythmic language, it speaks to our challenging times as a worthy companion to "The Prophet."
