Heritage of Light

The Spiritual Destiny of America

Heritage of Light is an accessible description of the American Baha'i community and a penetrating look at the spiritual destiny of America. This exploration traces the historical and spiritual connections that link the American Baha'is with the early Baha'is of Iran, who displayed an unparalleled staunchness of faith and heroism in the face of unspeakable brutal persecution and oppression.

The author's examination of the writings of the Baha'i Faith, along with extensive historical and archival records, demonstrates the unique role assigned to the American Baha'is and to the American nation as a whole in the development of a unified global society and the eventual inauguration of a world civilisation.
