I was given a copy of the Prophet, in exchange for an honest review.
I found the thought of reading a play rather daunting, and was also concerned about the subject matter. But it is very well written, and I got into to it very quickly; in fact I couldn't stop reading it. As expected I found it sad and very challenging. I never cease to find mans inhumanity to man, distressing!
I won't give a summery of the story, as others have already done that. Suffice to say, it's about Nat Turner a man born into slavery. And rather like Moses, his parents and the other slaves soon become aware that he is special and gifted.
I'm glad I was given the opportunity to read it, and would certainly recommend it to every one.
What ever nation we're born in...whatever colour we may be. We are all special in God's eyes!
