The Life of Baha'u'llah Told in Stories

Almost two hundred years ago, in a country that was then known as Persia, a new religion was born. The religion was the Bahá’í Faith, and its Founder was Bahá’u’lláh.

Bahá’u’lláh explained that He was like the Founders of other religions, like Moses and Krishna, Zoroaster, Buddha, Jesus, and Muhammad, Who came to give guidance and help to mankind. These Messengers of God all promised that God would unfailingly send His guidance to the people of the earth. They said that in times of great trouble, a new Messenger of God would appear in the world. Bahá’u’lláh said His coming fulfilled that promise for our own time.

Bahá’u’lláh looked upon each person as ‘a mine rich in gems of inestimable value’. The stories retold in this book reveal how those who met Him responded to Him, and describe, through their eyes, that experience.
