Abdu'l-Baha: The Centre of the Covenant of Baha'u'llah
This book is still the standard biography on the life of the individual who was designated by Bahá'u'lláhas the Most Great Branch, the Master and the Center of the Covenant.
Researched in detail, this book condenses one of the most outstanding, active and exemplary lives in human spiritual history. With accuracy and care it covers the significant periods and pivotal events, and exemplifies in many inspiring stories and vignettes, the spirit that animated ‘Abdu’l-Bahá's tireless, essential and global range of services and sacrifice.
The book describes ‘Abdu’l-Bahá's journey to the West, the places he visited and audiences he addressed, many of those who were privileged to meet him, and the example he gave in daily life. The ideals he upheld for all are reflected in a wealth of quotations from his talks.
