Child of the Covenant
A Study Guide to the Will and Testament of 'Abdu'l-Bahá
A detailed study of this important 'Charter of Bahá'u'lláh's New World Order' using the principle of the relationship of various aspects of the Covenant to each subject mentioned by 'Abdu'l-Bahá in His Will and Testament.
His final book, sequel to The Covenant of Bahá'u'lláh, provides a detailed and insightful study of the Will and Testament of 'Abdu'l-Bahá, the 'Charter of Bahá'u'lláh's New World Order'.
The Will and Testament of 'Abdu'l-Bahá constitutes a fundamental document of the Covenant of Bahá'u'lláh. Described by Shoghi Effendi as 'the Child of the Covenant' the importance of its study becomes obvious when we note that Shoghi Effendi has stipulated that one of the qualifications of a true believer is 'loyal and steadfast adherence to every clause of our Beloved's sacred Will'.
The organizational principle behind the guide is the relationship of various aspects of the Covenant and its verities to almost every subject mentioned by 'Abdu'l-Bahá in His Will and Testament. In some instances a study is made of a full paragraph, in many cases of a sentence, and sometimes of certain words, resulting in a masterful and illuminating examination of this important document.
