Summary

Newly discovered writings from the author of the classic best seller The Prophet

And the Prophet Said is a new complete gift edition of Gibran’s classic text with more than 150 newly discovered poems, aphorisms, and epigrams.

Originally published in 1923 by Knopf, The Prophet is a teaching fable that has been cherished by millions for nearly 100 years. It is a book of wisdom that provides guidance on how to live a life imbued with meaning and purpose. Gibson explores all of life’s important issues - including love, marriage, the human condition, friendship, prayer, beauty, death, and much more.

What makes this edition of The Prophet especially exciting is the inclusion of newly discovered Gibran material. In 2017, Dalton Hilu Einhorn gained access to the Gibran/Haskell archives at the University of North Carolina. Buried among this treasure trove of papers, he discovered more than 150 of Kahlil Gibran's poems, aphorisms, and sayings that had never been published.

Here is classic Gibran wisdom and inspiration that leads listeners to contemplate love, beauty, mortality, and meaning. The words have an immediacy and depth that will appeal to the millions who have read The Prophet.

Golden Classic with Pearls

Kevin Kenerly reads with a gentle intonation, ensuring the success of this magnificent recording. The additional, recently-discovered texts are a delight. The Prophet itself is a satisfying surprise for the newcomer, not only for its wisdom, but also for its form: a departing sage answers questions put to him by the townspeople, his hosts.
