The Life of the 'Abdu'l-Bahá
If you desire to be one of those Bahá'ís who can tell the stories of the Central Figures, here is a clear, and easily readable account of the life of the 'Abdu'l-Bahá.
Here is a clear, straightforward and easily readable account of the remarkable life of 'Abdu'l-Bahá, the son of Bahá'u'lláh, founder of the Bahá'í Faith.
We see 'Abdu'l-Bahá from His earliest days in Persia, during the terrible persecutions of the Bábís, and follow Bahá'u'lláh and His family on their exiles across the Middle East to 'Akká. We learn how 'Abdu'l-Bahá protected His father while in the prison city and took on His shoulders the great responsibilities of the Cause after His father's passing. The building of the Shrine of the Báb, the first pilgrimages of Western believers to the Holy Land, the emancipation of 'Abdu'l-Bahá and His journeys to the West are among the many events described in this compelling story of one known as the 'Mystery of God', the 'Perfect Exemplar' and the 'Centre of the Covenant'.
