Herald and His Heroes

Stories about the Báb

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.

Beautifully written by Hitjo Garst, a writer for children with extensive experience in teaching children’s classes.

The Formative Age of the Faith was preceded by the Heroic Age, which began in 1844, in Iran, with the proclamation of the Báb, the Herald of Bahá'u'lláh. The life of the Báb and His heroic followers is described in the book, The Herald...Show More

Beautifully written by Hitjo Garst, a writer for children with extensive experience in teaching children’s classes.

The Formative Age of the Faith was preceded by the Heroic Age, which began in 1844, in Iran, with the proclamation of the Báb, the Herald of Bahá'u'lláh. The life of the Báb and His heroic followers is described in the book, The Herald and His Heroes. The book, From Mountain to Mountain, contains forty stories about the life of Bahá'u'lláh, the Founder of the Bahá'í Faith. The Most Mighty Branch, the third book in this series, is about the life and ministry of 'Abdu'l-Bahá, the son of Bahá'u'lláh. Bahá'u'lláh appointed His Son as the interpreter of His Writings. After Bahá'u'lláh's Ascension, the unity of His Faith was preserved through 'Abdu'l-Bahá, just as now and into the future, unity will be preserved through the Administrative Order.
