Trustees of the Merciful
An Introduction to Bahá'í Administration.
At a time when forces of destruction are sweeping the surface of the earth, plunging the whole of the human race into a state of chaos and dismay and uprooting its time-honoured institutions, the comparatively small Bahá'í community is erecting the framework of new institutions embracing the whole planet and designed to evolve, in the fullness of time, into Bahá'u'lláh's New World Order.
In this thoughtful book Adib Taherzadeh:
- Traces the origin of the Bahá'í Administrative Order,
- Outlines the spiritual standards and principles that govern the workings of the Spiritual Assembly,
- Emphasizes the importance of understanding the spirit of the Administrative Order and of conforming to it,
- Describes the gradual unfoldment of the administrative institutions of the Bahá'í Faith and provides insights into the role of the individual members of these institutions – the Trustees of the Merciful.
