From Mountain to Mountain – Stories About Baha’u’llah is a comprehensive history of the Bahá’í Faith for young people
This is a book which young people will find a valuable addition to their Bahá’í libraries. From Mountain to Mountain: Stories about Bahá’u’lláh relates the history of the Bahá’í Faith from the childhood of the Báb to the Ascension of Bahá’u’lláh.
Written in a simple style and suitable for use in children’s classes, the book covers all the significant events in the life of Bahá’u’lláh. Each of the forty-one chapters recalls one episode in the evolution of the Bahá’í Faith, and well-known figures such as Mullá Husayn, Vahíd and Badí’ are introduced.
The book brings together those strands from Bahá’í history which reveal how Bahá’u’lláh’s exile from Persia to the Holy Land was part of the Plan of God, foretold by the Prophet Micah: ‘in that day, in which they shall come to you . . . from sea to sea and from mountain to mountain.’

The stories in ‘From Mountain to Mountain’ were originally written for the Bahá’í children’s class in Emmen.
