From Mountain to Mountain
Stories about Bahá'u'lláh
A comprehensive history of the Bahá'í Faith for young people.
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.
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.
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.'
'A delightful book', 'it will not only be enjoyed by children and youth, but also by all who wish to know a very important part of the history of the Faith', 'a comprehensive history for youngsters'.
