Tell Me About Baha’u’llah Mini-Book
This is the booklet for seekers who want to go straight to the source. Here readers will find over one hundred carefully selected quotations that offer an uplifting and hopeful vision of humanity’s potential. The cover is beautiful. The interior text is deep blue. The type is large.
Note: This was originally published as Baha’i Teachings for a New Millenium, but then the new millenium became old news, so we change the title to Why We Have Hope, but that was too vague for people to predict the content, so we’ve combined the two titles into one that I hope accurately reflects the content and will attract interest. This third printing keeps the text from both, and the introduction from the second.
The quotations cover a wide range of topics, organized around the idea of maturity and God’s love. Section headings include
Building a New Relationship with God
Tools for Social Progress
The Role of Religion
Envisioning the Future
A Selection of Baha’i Prayers.This is the booklet you’ve been waiting for.
For years, Baha’is have used the indirect approach to teaching because we were afraid that if we were clear about Baha’u’llah claim and Station, we would scare people away. And we were right – kind of. When we tell people about Baha’u’llah, we need to acknowledge their potential fear and address it with compassion and confidence. That is what this powerful little booklet does.
It combines the middle section of the book My Baha’i Faith that has inspired many people to sign a declaration card on the spot, with the profound message of love from the booklet Tell Me About God’s Love for Me, and the clear summary of the principles from the teaching card Tell Me About Baha’u’llah.
It is written in a very personal style that helps make the profound nature of Baha’u’llah’s claim feel less intimidating and more manageable. Because most American readers will have some connection to Christianity, it explains Baha’u’llah’s station by relating it to the Christian concept of the Trinity. When telling Baha’u’llah’s life story, it continually relates it to parallel events in the life of Christ. In this way, the reader is constantly but gently challenged to see Baha’u’llah in the same light. By the end, it will be difficult for any fair-minded reader to conclude anything other than the fact that Baha’u’llah is, indeed the most recent Manifestation of God.
The book is long enough to make its central points, but small enough to look more like a pamphlet than a book. It is priced to be used in direct teaching campaigns as well as personal teaching. If you liked My Baha’i Faith or any of our other teaching booklets, you will want to order this one by the case. (Call for case pricing)
