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. ...more

A solid book on the Baha’i faith. I really enjoyed it from a Baha’i Perspective. The only thing I didn’t like about the book is that he doesn’t mention anything about the Bab or Baha’u’llah such as leading raids or real reason they were in prison. This is a great book to start with when learning about the Baha’i faith. If any if you want to engage with members of the Baha’i faith feel free to message me and I will give you some good things in the book you can use to evangelize to the members of ...more

Got through about 1/3. A lot of history, not a lot of teaching of what his beliefs were.

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. He is more interested in telling a story than in providing a historical account—in true religious form, he includes the apocrypha. I cheer for the heroes when they vanquish their oppressors. But I am not sold on the bad guys, who seem to have terribly flimsy motives. And I am interested in the historicity of the character ...more

This seems a fine introduction to the Baha'i faith. I'm not sure my opinion counts for much, as this is the first book I have read on the subject. It always presents something of a quandary whether first to read a book from somebody inside the faith or an outsider's view. I liked that fact that the book quoted extensively from the major figures of Baha'i. 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

Shelves: spiritualistic
The Baha'i Faith is a world religion that teaches the validity and truth of all other religions, the absolute equality of the sexes, the radical freedom of the human spirit, and the immanent emergence of a global civilization based on justice and compassion. 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

While more of a biased introduction to the Baha'i faith as opposed to a scholarly one, this book explores the history and teachings of the new religion with wide samplings of holy literature. Well-presented, memorable and informative, this book provides a wonderful resource to anyone who has questions about Baha'i. ...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. ...more

As a life-long Bahàí I found this book an easy read and a good book to pass onto friends who ask what my faith is all about.
