I first read this book as an 18 year old in 1974 in my home town of Savannah, Georgia. It wasn't until 1982 way up in Fargo, North Dakota that I was able to meet my first Baha'i and attend a Fireside. I said all of that to impress upon the reader what an impact this book had upon me! It is one of the best books -- and remains so to this day -- about the Baha'i Faith for the newcomer. I attribute this book for my finally signing my declaration card in 1989 in Colorado. My love for what I learned from this book never left me as I transversed the world. And it is this one book that I can say brought me much happiness as a Baha'i.

Acerca del autor (2006)

J. E. Esslemont (1874-1925) was a prominent Baha'i from Scotland. He trained in medicine at Aberdeen University, though tuberculosis forced his to abandon a promising career in medical research and to pursue other interests. His talent as a linguist and his knowledge of Persian and Arabic enabled him to assist in translating a number of important Baha'i works.
