Fully conscious of the social, political, and religious realities of Palestine and Rome at the time, and at home with the local traditions and language, Gibran effortlessly evokes the spellbinding power of Christ's presence upon his associates.

He drew upon his personal faith to write such bestsellers as The Prophet, the bestselling book of the 20th century.
