The book highlights the fireside method as elucidated by ‘Abdu’l-Bahá and Shoghi Effendi. The fireside provides for us an insight into individual endeavour, a foundation for the transformation of the human condition - that within its framework lies the very core of the development of new patterns of relationships that will, over time, completely change the society in which we live.

Teaching the Cause of God is not solely about conversion. It is about the promulgation of the principle of the oneness of mankind, ‘the pivot round which all the Teachings of Bahá’u’lláh revolve’. We must be engaged with our neighbours, friends, family and co-workers in uplifting our conversations, in serving our communities together, in developing a devotional intermingling on a regular basis and in fostering the education of our children and the direction of our junior youth. Our very cities, towns, villages and neighbourhoods depend upon it.

About Michael Winger

Michael Winger’s lifelong commitment to business innovation and diversity enabled his professional career to move from product innovation to organizational innovation in both the private and government sectors. His work in change management and strategic change brought him to advising senior management of Fortune 500 companies and senior leadership of the United States military, Department of Energy and other government agencies. Public speaking in his professional field has included, among many others, presentations at Carnegie-Mellon University on the integration of technology, business acumen and human dynamics; and on entrepreneurship at the The Innovation Imperative talks at the Universities of Oxford, Cambridge and London in the United Kingdom.

Michael has also served with various organizations that promote racial unity and the equality of women and men, including assistance in the development of strategic focus for NGOs on the status of women worldwide, for presentation to the United Nations General Assembly, as well as strategic consulting to the Tahirih Justice Center, an NGO that provides legal support to abused women seeking immigration status in the United States.

A dedication to the fostering of racial harmony and cultural diversity has taken him to over 45 countries, and to live in six, bringing the teachings of the Bahá’í Faith that foster the oneness of mankind and the development of a world consciousness.

In 2010, Michael retired from active business involvement and went pioneering for the Bahá’í Faith to Croatia where he currently resides.
