At a monastery that stands where Noah's Ark came to rest after the Flood, the Abbot Mirdad engages in a series of dialogues with his disciples, offering lessons on such themes as love, obedience, borrowing and lending, repentance, old age, and the cycle of life and death. First published in 1948, this prophetic work by Lebanese author Mikail Naimy (1889-1998) calls on humankind to prepare for another deluge, greater than Noah's, when Heaven will be revealed on Earth. Often compared to the works of his friend Khalil Gibran, Naimy's book draws inspiration from Judeo-Christian traditions, SufiIslam, and the writings of Leo Tolstoy.
