Afire with the Vision

Messages from Shoghi Effendi to Latin America

The last of the continental collections gathered from Shoghi Effendi’s ministry (1921–1957), Afire with the Vision: Messages from Shoghi Effendi to Latin America is a long-anticipated and significant publication.

The volume covers Shoghi Effendi’s direction given to the Latin American community throughout the course of the initial stages in the execution of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá’s Divine Plan for the worldwide propagation of the Bahá’í Faith. Its contents have been carefully gathered over the course of several decades from official Bahá’í archives and the papers of individual believers throughout the hemisphere. Not only does this volume stand as a tribute to the tireless efforts of the many pioneers and first Latin American believers, it constitutes a further record of the inestimable role of Shoghi Effendi in advancing the vital interests of the Cause of God throughout the world.

About Shoghi Effendi

Shoghi Rabbani, known as Shoghi Effendi, was born in 1897 in what is now Israel, and died in 1957 in London, England. He was the grandson of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá and served as the Head of the Bahá’í Faith from 1921 to his death. Shoghi Effendi wrote over 25,000 letters and cables, some of which were later published as books. He also wrote a history of the first century of the Bahá’í Faith titled God Passes By. His writings – half of which are in English and the half of which are in Arabic and Persian - include analyses of world events in light of the Bahá’í scriptures, interpretations of Bahá’í scripture, responses to letters from individuals and Bahá’í institutions, and authoritative translations of writings of Bahá’u’lláh and the Báb.
