A collection of essays, poems, meditations, aspirations, and thoughts of one who was appointed a Hand of the Cause by the Guardian of the Bahá’í Faith.
In this collection of essays, poems and meditations both the quality and the devotion of the author are evident. Here the reader will encounter the wisdom, the aspirations, and the intimate and affecting thoughts of one who was appointed a Hand of the Cause by the Guardian of the Bahá’í Faith.
The Heart of the Gospel aims to awaken faith, The mission of Bahá’u’lláh to deepen it,’ wrote George Townshend. ‘I believe that in the light of people’s difficulty in learning to pray and meditate these pieces may have a value.’
But the richness and fascination of this book go further. Such essays as ‘The Wellspring of Happiness’, ‘The Call of God’, ‘Queen Marie of Rumania and the Bahá’í Faith’, and ‘The Genius of Ireland’, provide some of Townshend’s finest literary work.
