The Eye of the Prophet is a startling new collection of Gribran's writings translated from Arabic into French and now to English. Here Gibran is the poetic, philosophical moralist, grounded in Islam, Buddhism, and Christianity, questing for the best in humanity, refusing to separate man from the natural world. The ordinary work and life of man has the potential to be inherently noble, Gibran believes, if man could only enact his affairs with the sublimity of nature's creations. The Eye of the Prophet is a treasury of wisdom, lyrical joy, and inspiration. With its forceful and rhythmic language, it speaks to our challenging times as a worthy companion to the The Prophet .
