"When love beckons to you follow him, Though his ways are hard and steep". (The Prophet, On Love). The time has come for the revered Prophet to leave Orphalese. Before he departs, people gather around him and ask him to speak of love, marriage, time, sorrow, friendship and children. The Prophet's replies are illuminating and humane and provide a timeless guide to living. The Prophet was an instant bestseller on publication in 1923. Since then it has been translated into more than 20 languages and is a classic work of inspirational fiction.

To any question, there was always a simple answer very refreshing." -- Cynthia Lennon Mail on Sunday "A book that changed me ... was The Prophet'by Khalil Gibran, which has passages about every section of life. My parents gave me a copy when I left home; it's a bit of a family Bible" -- Julia Bradbury Independent on Sunday
