  • "An early example of inspirational fiction including a series of philosophical essays written in poetic English prose."
  • "Offering inspiration to all, one man's philosophy of life and truth, considered one of the classics of our time."
  • "Classic fiction. The Prophet represents the acme of Kahlil Gibran"s achievement. Writing in English, Gibran adopted the tone and cadence of King James I"s Bible, fusing his personalised Christian philosophy with a spirit and oriental wisdom that derives from the richly mixed influences of his native Lebanon. His language has a breath-taking beauty. Before returning to his birthplace, Almustafa, the "prophet", is asked for guidance by the people of Orphalese. His words, redolent with love and understanding, call for universal unity, and affirm Gibran"s certainty of the correlated nature of all existence, and of reincarnation. "The Prophet" has never lost its immediate appeal and has become a ubiquitous touchstone of spiritual literature."

  • "One of the most beloved classics of our time, Kahlil Gibran's The Prophet has been translated into many languages and sold millions of copies since its original publication in 1923.

  • "Kahlil Gibran's masterpiece, The Prophet, is one of the most beloved classics of our time. Published in 1923, it has been translated into more than twenty languages, and the American editions alone have sold more than nine million copies. The Prophet is a collection of poetic essays that are philosophical, spiritual, and, above all, inspirational. Gibran's musings are divided into twenty-eight chapters covering such sprawling topics as 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. Each essay reveals deep insights into the impulses of the human heart and mind. The Chicago Post said of The Prophet: "Cadenced and vibrant with feeling, the words of Kahlil Gibran bring to one's ears the majestic rhythm of Ecclesiastes . . . If there is a man or woman who can read this book without a quiet acceptance of a great man's philosophy and a singing in the heart as of music born within, that man or woman is indeed dead to life and truth." With twelve full-page drawings by Gibran, this beautiful work makes an incredible gift for anyone seeking enlightenment and inspiration."@en

Bevor er sie verlässt, bitten ihn die Einwohner von Orfalîs, ein letztes Mal zu ihnen zu sprechen: von Liebe, Schmerz, Schönheit, Freude und allem anderen, was die Menschen bewegt. Die Antworten des Propheten sind voller Lebensweisheit und mystischer Tiefe und zählen zum Faszinierendsten, was die spirituelle Literatur hervorgebracht hat.
