Summary
  • "Growing out of the teachings of the Bab, who introduced the idea of the coming of a great prophet (the one promised in the scriptures of all the world's major religions), the Baha'i Faith was founded by Baha'u'llah when, in 1866, he publicly declared that he was the One the Bab had prophesized. The A to Z of the Baha'i Faith presents a general historical overview of both Babi and Baha'i religions and a theological overview of the Baha'i Faith, from its inception in the middle of the 19th century to the present. It presents biographical details of the Founders and Central Figures as well as numerous leaders and pioneers, basic principles and precepts, and aspects of the organization and its administration." "With photographs, a list of acronyms, a chronology, an introductory essay, a bibliography, hundreds of cross-referenced dictionary entries on nearly every aspect of the religion, and appendixes listing the genealogy of the Founders, statistical information, and lists of --
  • apostles, disciples, Hands of the Cause, Knights of Baha'u'llah, and more than 930 believers, this book is a fundamental reference tool for the Baha'i Faith." --Book Jacket
