The Covenant and You
"... the Báb says that every religion of the past was fit to become universal. The only reason why they failed to attain that mark was the incompetence of their followers. He then proceeds to give a definite promise that this would not be the fate of the [Bahá’í] revelation. ... that it will become universal and include all the people of the world." - Shoghi Effendi
Is mankind finally able to overcome its incompetence and shortcomings that have so weighed it down in the past? How does the Covenant fulfil the Báb’s prophecy? The answer lies in the dynamic relationship between the Covenant and us. Drawing on over 60 years of experience as a Bahá’í, the author brings profound insights as well as real-life anecdotes to this inspiring book.
