Almustafa the Prophet, or "The Chosen", is about to return to his native land. Before leaving his place of exile, he delivers twenty-six homilies to the people he is about to leave. Together, these short sermons form 'The Prophet', the most inspirational work of the twentieth century.
To the ploughman the prophet speaks of work, to the merchant of buying and selling, to the judge of crime and punishment, and to the teacher of teaching. But his words speak to everyone, world-wide, and the astonishing popularity of 'The Prophet' confirms that its spirituality has a timeless appeal. The message it imparts is that through love each of us can find our own potential or divinity.
