From Mountain to Mountain

Stories about Bahá'u'lláh

From Mountain to Mountain relates the history of the Bahá'í Faith from the childhood of the Báb to the Ascension of Bahá'u'lláh. Written in a simple style and suitable for use in Children's Classes, the book covers all the significant events in the life of Bahá'u'lláh.

The book brings together those strands from Bahá'í history which reveal how Bahá'u'lláh's exile from Persia to the Holy Land was part of the Plan of God, foretold by the Prophet Micah: 'in that day, in which they shall come to you . . . from sea to sea and from mountain to mountain.' Each of the forty-one chapters recalls one episode in the evolution of the Bahá'í Faith, and well-known figures such as Mullá Husayn, Vahíd, and Badí' are introduced.

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.
