    Falling Into Grace takes an honest look at the many things in the Bahá'í Community that can test your faith . It shines a bright light on these tests, and in illuminating them, it reduces their power. This book says "you are not alone," and, even better, "you are not a bad Bahá'í for struggling with these issues."  As the title suggests, we must be willing to fall before we can be lifted up through grace.
