This is a thorough and well thought out introduction to the Faith. It's nice to read an introduction now that I'm closing in on ten years practicing as my perspective has grown and developed but it is always good to be reminded of the basic, foundational concepts & history.

When I began this book (loaner from a friend), I admit my eyes rolled back in my head. For the historical parts, Bowers adopts a storytelling style that’s a bit...over the top.

I am sympathetic to Bahá'u'lláh, and he obviously was a very wise man, but I didn't find the constant assertions on the part of the author tha ...more

It posits that the purpose of the universe is for humanity to become closer and closer to the divine (and thus acquiring the qualities of godliness), and is intended to foster our eternal evolution by guiding virtuous thought and right actio ...more

We have been studying world religions in my adult Sunday School class, and our Baha'i visitor was fascinating so I wanted to read more about what she was talking about. Interesting stuff.

An Introduction to the Baha'i Faith. I am very interested in the Baha'i Faith and find myself agreeing with many of Baha'u'llah's teachings.
