Eye of the Prophet Reviews

"In these writings Kahlil Gibran takes us out of the wilderness into the joys and sorrows of everyday urban life. More personal and political than "The Prophet," the book nonetheless sings with Gibran's lyricism and abiding wisdom."
--Wes 'Scoop' Nisker, author of "Crazy Wisdom "and cofounder of Buddhist journal "Inquiring Mind"
"This book shows once again why the writings of Kahlil Gibran have been such a rich source of spiritual inspiration in our modern world."
--Jacob Needleman, author of "The Heart of Philosophy"
