Product Description

Product Description

Baha’u’llah and the New Era shines as the very best general introductory book about the Bahai Faith of its time, and remains today the most widely known and most used textbook of the Bahai Faith, having been translated into some 60 languages. In this compact work, Esslemont comprehensively yet succinctly sets forth the teachings of Baha’u’lluh, the Prophet and Founder of the Bahai Faith. He outlines the religion’s early history; explains the religion’s theology; incorporates extracts from Bahai scripture; and provides information on Bahai spiritual practices. Essential reading for students of comparative religion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Introducing the new World Order... 15 Nov 2003
This book is a wonderfully comprehensive intro to the new Era of Baha'u'llah, His teachings are expounded in a lucid and structured manner that I found both informative and readable. It is interesting to note that Abdu'l-Baha collaborated with the author in the completion of this work, providing authoritative suggetions as well as editing a number of chapters before His passing. I highly recommend this book for those interested in learning more about the Baha'i Faith.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still the classic introduction 29 Jan 2008
Many years, and many editions and reprintings, after it first appeared this book still remains the classic introduction to the Baha'i Faith. The author was an early Scottish Baha'i whose close involvement with the leading figures of the religion gave him a unique insight which still informs the text today. It is comprehensive although inevitably it tends to be more detailed on the history and on the broad sweep of the Baha'i teachings: those seeking a detailed exposition of recent developments will have to look elsew here. But as an introduction to this religion - now the world's second most widespread after Christianity - it stands the test of time and speaks clearly to us now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good, clear introduction to the Bahai faith 10 Sep 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I think the person who said this was translated from the Persian must have been reading a different book. This one is by a native English speaker, why would he write it in Persian? The English is perfectly clear, a straightforward read. It's a good introduction to the Baha'i faith.
