“Work is love made visible.” - Khalil Gibran

Filled with wisdom, written in simple, poetic language, The Prophet is a book for all ages, which remains amazingly relevant to our times. This audiobook, narrated by Michael Kramer and Kate Reading, contains two full versions of The Prophet: Part One, with music by Stefan Frankenberger. Part Two, with our voices only.

After living in the city of Orphalese for 12 years, a prophet is about to board a ship which will carry him home. He is stopped by a seeress and the people of the city, who ask him for his insights into life.

The book is divided into chapters dealing with love, marriage, children, giving, eating and drinking, work, joy and sorrow, houses, clothes, buying and selling, crime and punishment, laws, freedom, reason and passion, pain, self-knowledge, teaching, friendship, talking, time, good and evil, prayer, pleasure, beauty, religion, and death.

The Prophet is a book of prose poetry written by Khalil Gibran. Originally published in 1923, it is now in the public domain. The Prophet has been translated into over 100 different languages, making it one of the most translated books in history, and it has never been out of print.

About the Author

Kahlil Gibran (1883–1931), an artist, poet, and writer, was born in Lebanon and spent much of his productive life in the United States. 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. He remains one of the world’s bestselling poets, second only to Shakespeare and Lao-Tzu. To many he is a genius whose philosophical and prophetic style convey important messages about life and humanity in a simple, yet beautifully eloquent manner, which was described by Library Journal as "poetic prose, half New Testament and half Walt Whitman.”
