Finally! Here is a short and readable introduction to the Bahá'í
Faith that you can give to friends and family at a reasonable price.
The book provides a quick, but moving, overview of Bahá'í
history, Bahá'í social principles, and spiritual teachings--with
copious quotations from the Bahá'í sacred texts.
The author begins at the beginning with Baha'u'llah. She plunges
right into a history of his life, his arrest and imprisonment, his
writings, and his triumph over his enemies. Her effort is to knit
the heart of the seeker first to the Manifestation of God. This
focus on Baha'u'llah is the bulk of the little volume.
But the author also includes chapters on the twelve social principles
of the Faith proclaimed by 'Abdu'l-Baha during his travels in the
West. She quotes liberally from his public talks.
The book also addresses the reader's spiritual quest, inviting the
seeker to investigate Bahá'í paths to the spirit.
This is a new introduction to the teachings, suitable for seekers,
youth, or just ordinary Bahá'ís.
