    Spiritually Uplifting

    A wonderful and joyous explanation of many thoughts and ideas behind the Baha'i faith. A very enlightening book that makes the reader wish the time were right for the world peace to be fully in place. Shows the full connection between all the words of God from the past until today.

    A must check out for peace of mind...

    Interesting introspect of a Faith. I myself have believed in much of what they have interduced as their docterine. I though still do not believe in an organized religion that puts at its head no woman. It is still a man run religion telling you dos and dont's...and that does not apeal to me as a woman. The book tells it like it has been told by a Bahi. So it is up to the reader what to do with the knowledge in the book!
