In Making a Better World with the Bahá'í Faith, How Bahá'ís are transforming our world into a more unified, prosperous, and spiritual home for all mankind, author Nathan Thomas explores how people find a global community implementing a comprehensive solution for humanity's troubles in our age within the Baha'i Faith. The book first looks at the ultimate aims and aspirations of the Bahá'í Faith for building a new world civilization from the ground up. Set for us by the hand of the founder of the Bahá'í Faith in the late 1800's, Bahá'u'lláh gave the world a compelling list of aspirational goals to achieve that would transform our world. From the elimination of prejudice and religious fanaticism, to the alleviation of extremes of poverty, to universal education and equality of people of all races, to world peace through collective security; the Bahá'í community has some ambitious plans to change our world. It also explores the organized aspect of this new world faith. In order to achieve these goals, the Bahá'í Faith has mobilized a global community unlike anything ever seen before in the history of religion or government. With both an elected and appointed component, this grassroots-based organization brings out the best in humanity while nullifying its weaknesses through tools such as consultation, universal participation, empowerment of youth, and an unbreakable foundation laid for us by the Founder of this faith Himself in the form of the Covenant of Bahá'u'lláh. Lastly, the book covers the infusion of spirituality that powers this new world faith. Inspiring this organization and feeding the hearts of the community in order to achieve its goals is a renewed spirit for all humanity. This new spirit inspires people to strive to live a moral life, share the message of love and hope with all mankind, and cultivate a new culture of trustworthiness between people of all backgrounds. With the help of illustrative stories, quotations from the Bahá'í Holy Writings, and a brisk and conversational style, Making a Better World with the Bahá'í Faith can help people realize the amazing potential of this new world faith to really make a lasting difference in the world.
