Challenge of Baha'u'llah, The
"One person examines the astonishing claims made by the prophet who founded the Bahá'í Religion."
Members of the Bahá'í Faith, the youngest of the independent world religions, represent one of the most culturally, geographically, and economically diverse groups of people on the planet, yet all are firmly united in their belief that the prophet and founder of their faith-Bahá'u'lláh (1817-1892), a Persian nobleman by birth-is none other than the "Promised One" prophesized in the scriptures of the world's great religions. Bahá'u'lláh Himself claimed to be the Messenger of God for humanity in this day, the bearer of a new revelation from God that will transform the human race.
Author Gary Matthews addresses the central question that anyone investigating the life, character, and writings of Bahá'u'lláh must ask: Is this remarkable figure really Who He claims to be?
The author explains why he believes the Revelation of Bahá'u'lláh's is not only divine in origin, but also represents a unique challenge of unequaled importance to humanity today. Matthews sets forth the claims of Bahá'u'lláh, summarizes His teachings, and then embarks on his own examination. His investigation correlates Bahá'í prophecies with developments in history and science; considers Bahá'u'lláh's knowledge, wisdom, and character; describes His ability to reveal scripture and what it was like to be in His presence; discusses the profound influence of His writings; and more. Matthews concludes by inviting readers to make their own analysis of the record.
