In Visions of The Prophet Gibran's narrator wrestles with the hypocrisies of Christianity ("Mad John," "The Man on the Cross") and challenges his own hypocrisy ("Kahlil the Ungodly"). He questions how children can become soulful creatures within corrupt marriages and poverty ("The Sister Soul," "The Woman of Tomorrow") and he urges the development of an inner life ("Solitude and Isolation"). The narrator extols Paris from his exile in Boston, and writes about the natural wonders of the Earth with the passionate lyricism we equate with Gibran. The one-act dramatic play ("The Many- columned City of Iram") is a heartfelt dialogue between a Sufi master, a female sage, and a seeker, about the nature of faith and reality. This carefully arranged collection brings a surprisingly modern Gibran to old and new readers. Many will thrill to his stirring words about building a soul and reconstructing a spiritual identity. Mystic, patriot and poet, Gibran urges us to uproot complacency and corruption, and champion Love and Truth.
