Kahlil Gibran considered The Prophet his greatest achievement. He said: "I think I've never been without The Prophet since I first conceived it in Mount Lebanon. It seems to have been a part of me....I kept the manuscript four years before I delivered it over to my publisher, because I wanted to be sure, I wanted to be very sure, that every word of it was the very best I had to offer."
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."
The Prophet is the classic masterwork comprised of several exquisitely flowing prose essays written by Lebanese writer, poet, and philosopher, Kahlil Gibran in 1923, that examines what it means to be alive and a human being and the love and tenderness we universally seek. Narrated with enlightened reason and down-to-earth wisdom by Alec Sand, this abridged version of The Prophet is a must-listen for anyone with a poetic heart, as the transcendent wonder in these lyrical words gush forth from the pen and heart of a true artist.

A Sad Injustice done to listener...
Alec Sand reads without any passion for the material and in monotone to make the material unlistenable.... I bought the one narrated by Robert Glenister.... Much much better
