The Forerunner is Gibran's second book in the English language built upon the mystical and spiritual thematic foundations that he had laid down with The Madman. You are your own forerunner, and the towers you have builded are but the foundation of your giant-self. And that self too shall be a foundation. Download and start listening now!

    " I didn't find this book as immediately moving as I did Sand and Foam, but it's a slim volume which I will read again to see if things become clearer. "

About the Author
Author Kahlil Gibran

Kahlil Gibran (1883–1931), a Lebanese artist, mystical poet, and writer, is one of his home country’s literary heroes. Born in Bsharri, a town in a mountainous area of northern Lebanon, he received no formal education until his family immigrated to Boston’s South End in 1895. Once there, he studied art and began his literary career. His works are deeply spiritual and lyrical, marked by a distinctive formal style. He is known in the English-speaking world primarily for The Prophet, a book of twenty-six poetic essays published in 1923 which achieved cult status. Gibran remains one of today’s bestselling poets.
