By Terry Culhane
Bahá'u'lláh tells us that the first words of the Revelation were
spoken to him by a woman: "Turning My face, I beheld a Maiden--the
embodiment of the remembrance of the name of My Lord . . ."
This Maiden rejoiced his soul and informed him of his Mission.
And so, Terry Culhane goes in search of the Divine Feminine in
the Writings of Bahá'u'lláh. He finds that the whole body of Writings
can be read as a conversation between a Lover (Bahá'u'lláh) and
his Beloved (the Maiden). This love and mystery must stand at the
heart of Bahá'í identity and Bahá'í community life. Sharing his
own spiritual journey, Culhane offers an insightful and fascinating
reconsideration of the most basic Bahá'í teachings seen in light
of the mystical core at the center of all religion. His discoveries
are startling and exciting!
