Overview

In the Glory of the Father: The Bahai Faith and Christianity by Brian D. Lepard


This is a personal story of spiritual search and discovery that connects the relationship between the teachings of Christianity and the teachings of the Bahai Faith.

Author Brian Lepard begins by drawing on his childhood religious experiences and his study of the Bible and holy books from other world religious traditions. He recounts his own personal spiritual journey and discovery of the Bahai Faith. He describes the lives of the central figures of the Bahai Faith: the Bab, Bahaullah, Abdul-Baha, and more.

Other chapters explore the station of Jesus Christ, biblical interpretation, and the nature of God. Lepard also discusses whether it is possible to build the Kingdom of God on earth.

This book is aimed at Christian readers who have heard of the Bah Faith and are interested in learning more about the relationship between the teachings of Christianity and the teachings of the Bahai Faith.
