Review by

This collection of poems by Kahlil Gibran is an exceptional work of art. The Prophet gives a look at elements of every day life such as eating, love, and clothing with a focus on spirituality and mindfulness. Appropriate for any open minded person, The Prophet asks us to appreciate life's gifts and to look deeper into things. The Prophet would have us know our inner selves and, in turn, understand the outside world which is actually a part of ourselves too. This book is full of poems expressing love, insight, joy, sorrow, and compassion for the human condition. Gibran asks us to appreciate everything we have and takes a unique look at elements of life that many may take for granted.
