World Order of Bahá’u’lláh

Selected Letters

Seven letters written by Shoghi Effendi addressed to the Bahá’ís of the United States and the West, first collected in 1938, comprising The World Order of Bahá’u’lláh, The World Order of Bahá’u’lláh: Further Considerations, The Goal of a New World Order, The Golden Age of the Cause of Bahá’u’lláh, America and the Most Great Peace, The Dispensation of Bahá’u’lláh, and The Unfoldment of World Civilization.

This collection of letters by Shoghi Effendi unfold a clear vision of the relation between the Bahá'í community and the entire process of social evolution under the Dispensation of Bahá'u'lláh. The vital distinction between the Bahá'í community and the sects and congregations of former religions had already been made apparent at the time of their writing, but this collection establishes the Bahá'í Administrative Order as the nucleus and pattern of the world civilization emerging under divine inspiration at this focal point in human history.

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.
