    Comments about The Prophet:

    I read The Prophet years ago, but wish I had a copy to give for those who needed to learn the wisdom of this text.

    I have three copies from Booktopia. I carry one in my car after I experienced my assistance to a woman with child.
    The page on CHILDREN would have been invaluable.

    I intend to purchase more books by Kahill



    Comment on this review

    "His power came from some great reservoir of spiritual life, else it could not have been so universal and so potent, but the majesty and beauty of the language with which he clothed it were all his own" -- Claude Bragdon
