The Gardens of Light by Amin Malouf


The story of Mani, a mystical prophet of the third century, is painted in words by the master Malouf. He preached the familiar themes of humility, tolerance and love.

Malouf educates us as he weaves the story of a man who was politically manipulated and then discarded.

This is a must for anyone with an interest in Manicheanism, Eastern philosophy and ancient history of the Middle East.
