The Herald and His Heroes
Stories about the Báb
The great religious drama told in an easy-to-read style.
Who was the Báb? And who were His heroes? Whose Herald was He? Why did He die so young, and why was His Revelation so short?
The Herald and His Heroes answers these questions in a simple, easy-to-read style. This is the story of the great religious drama that unfolded in the middle of the 19th century in Iran. The Báb and His followers were relentlessly persecuted by clergy and government. Many thousands gave their lives so that the new teachings could reach the peoples of the world.
