Summary of The Vision Summary of The Vision Reviews for The Vision An Excerpt from The Vision

For Kahlil Gibran (1883-1931), no single religious tradition revealed the whole truth, so he wove together insights from Eastern Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, American Transcendentalism and the folklore of his native Lebanon to create his own universal 'Anthem of Humanity'.

A superb selection, savaging narrow-mindedness, clerical hypocrisy and political injustice, The Vision is an important new translation of one of Gibran's major Arabic texts, adding a fresh dimension to our understanding of his whole philosophy and career.
