Author Gary Matthews addresses the central question that anyone investigating the life, character, and writings of Baha'u'llah must ask: Is this remarkable figure really Who He claims to be? The author explains why he believes the revelation of Baha'u'llah is not only divine in origin, but also represents a unique challenge of unequaled importance to humanity today. Matthews sets forth the claims of Baha'u'llah, summarizes His teachings, and then embarks on his own examination. His investigation correlates Baha'i prophecies with developments in history and science; considers Baha'u'llah's knowledge, wisdom, and character; describes His ability to reveal scripture and what it was like to be in His presence; discusses the profound influence of His writings; and more. Matthews concludes by inviting readers to make their own analysis of the record.

I have read it and loaned it to a friend - who read it and loaned it to one of his professors. I think this will go on forever so I guess I need to buy another copy for myself. It is well-written, well-thought out and compelling. Written primarily for non-Christians, it does not use Biblical passages or prophecies to make its point. The other book I recommend, He Commeth with Clouds does (but covers the same territory while doing so).
