Description

"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. "Listening to this masterful narration by Kate Reading and Michael Kramer is a solid choice for those wanting to enjoy Lebanese-American poet Kahlil Gibran's prose. The narrators share his wisdom for the ages in beautifully read phrases…In a deep baritone Kramer takes on the words of the prophet from whom people ask advice. His authoritative and confident performance is balanced by Kate Reading's tender delivery of the chapters she reads…The production has two options for listening: one with musical interludes and one without. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award." "Those wishing to listen to Gibran's perennially popular spiritual poem have many narrations from which to choose…This appealing new production featuring husband-and-wife narration team Michael Kramer and Kate Reading stands out from the pack….This production gives a sense of gravity to Gibran's life-affirming and empowering message that will reward-and may require-repeated listens…Still popular after a century, the book brims with wise words for those with ears to hear, and is a natural recommendation for fans of The Alchemist and seekers in general."
