Summary

Author Brian Lepard draws upon his childhood religious experiences and his study of the Bible and other holy books to recount his spiritual journey and discovery of the Baha'i Faith. He describes in some detail the lives of the central-figures of the Baha'i Faith: the Bab, Who heralded the coming of Baha'u'llah; Baha'u'llah, the Prophet-Founder of the Baha'i Faith; and 'Abdu'l-Baha, the son and successor of Baha'u'llah. Lepard explores the similarities between the Baha'i and Christian views of the station of Jesus Christ, biblical interpretation, and the nature of God, and he discusses whether it is possible to build the Kingdom of God on earth and how biblical prophecy has been fulfilled through the coming of Baha'u'llah.
