The Baha'i Faith in words and images

Image of item
Book
"Beautifully illustrated by acclaimed photographer Paul Slaughter, this concise and thoughtful book offers a unique overview of the rich diversity of the Bahá' í Faith. After Christianity, the Bahá' í Faith is the most geographically widespread of the world religions, with members in virtually every corner of the earth. Its global outlook, its core beliefs of peace, harmony and tolerance, as well as its high regard for ethical conduct, make it a faith with a broad and potent appeal in the modern world. This elegant guide provides an accessible introduction to all the key aspects of the Bahá' í Faith, from its founding figures and sacred texts, to its worldwide organization and spiritual practices. The combination of lucid commentary and stunning photography - featuring the magnificent Bahá' í shrines and temples together with a wide variety of historical pictures, explanatory maps and charts - offers the reader an unparalleled journey through the Bahá' í world."--Page 4 of cover.
