Dispensation of the Báb

A systematic overview of the Báb’s theological and legal teachings, the Bábí Faith, and prophecies relating to Bahá’u’lláh in the Bábí scriptures. Prepared and categorised in an accessible manner for Western readers for the first time.

“It is the first time that such a systematic overview of the Báb’s teachings as well as His laws and ordinances has been prepared and categorized in such an accessible manner in a Western language.” — Armin Eschraghi.

“Boris Handal’s comprehensive account of the religion of the Báb is a timely and much needed publication for the benefit of the general and expert reader. For the first time a book covers so many aspects of the less known Bábí Faith that constitutes the basis of the Bahá’í Faith.” — Necati Alkan

“This fascinating book by Dr Boris Handal will surely prove surprising, confirming and indispensable to all Bahá’ís. It is a comprehensive, yet easy-to-read book which brings together many aspects of the religion of the Báb that are not easily found elsewhere” — Michael Day

“This wide-ranging, fascinating and kaleidoscopic book includes scriptural texts and observations which will educate and cause its readers to gain a greater appreciation of the revolutionary religion founded by the Báb, the youthful yet amazingly courageous Sayyid of Shíráz." — Stephen Lambden

“This book is an attempt to produce a systematic presentation of the teachings of the Báb insofar as this can be done from the translations presently available. In addition, Boris Handal looks at the prophecies relating to Bahá’u’lláh in the Bábí scriptures and the extent to which the Báb’s laws have been carried forward into the Bahá’í Revelation.” — Moojan Momen

“Boris Handal has provided a great service to the many fans of the 19th century messianic figure who appeared in Iran and who is generally known as ‘the Báb’. While other books about the Báb discuss the history of His life, and largely pass over His theological and legal teachings, this book tackles them head on, and relates them directly to the most important theme in the Báb’s writings, namely, Him Whom God shall make manifest.” — Peter Terry
