Citadel of Faith

Messages to America 1947-1957

Citadel of Faith is a collection of letters from Shoghi Effendi to the Baha’is of North America written between 1947 and 1957. It gives insight into the crises and victories faced by the American believers, through the lens of the guidance provided by a loving Guardian throughout the last decade of his earthly life.

The value of this collection lies not only in the glimpse it gives into an important period of history but in the perspective it provides on the present, and in the ready application of the principles identified to the issues of the current time.

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.
