Special Ideas Books

We only publish a handful of books – mostly by Justice Saint Rain – but they are without a doubt our most popular. Here they all are in one convenient spot.

Books by Justice can be purchased at Amazon.com, and rate them at Amazon and GoodReads.com.  You can even read his blog at JusticeSaintRain.com, but if you want to buy any of these books in bulk, at a discount, or autographed, you need to come straight to the source.

    Long-time Bahá'ís will remember the Comprehensive Deepening Program with both fondness and enthusiasm. New Bahá'ís will find in it a truly comprehensive approach to the deepest foundation of the Bahá'í teachings. Rather than focusing on facts, figures, dates and details, this program places these secondary elements "in the light of God's purpose for man." Purpose, Meaning, the exercise of Will and the development of Virtues become the foundation for building a successful Bahá'í life. Presented in a format that is suitable for both study groups and individual deepening, the material is interesting, inspiring, and non-formulaic.

    Falling Into Grace takes an honest look at the many things in the Bahá'í Community that can test your faith from the fellow Bahá'ís that make you want to scream to the difficult laws that make you want to give up trying the kinds of tests that you are afraid to share with your friends and even those you are afraid to admit to yourself. 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." Struggling with these tests is what ennobles us, and sharing our struggles is what helps us create a real feeling of community. As the title suggests, we must be willing to fall before we can be lifted up through grace.

    4 Tools of Emotional Healing Though they are not quite the four horsemen of the apocalypse, the painful emotions of shame, anger, loneliness and fear have destroyed countless lives. The need to numb and distract ourselves from them leads us to engage in behaviors that only draw us deeper into shame and isolation. We do not need distractions or drugs, we need healing. This healing is not about solving our problems; it is about making us whole. This book explains how the qualities of honesty, forgiveness, compassion and faith can ease the pain of these negative emotions by filling the empty spaces they represent.
