THE BAHA'I FAITH by Jessyca Russell Gaver


Email this review


The Baha'i faith, one of the most widely publicized and fast-growing of modern religious systems, is a subject as intriguing as it is mysterious to the uninitiate. In this work, Mrs. Gaver succeeds in satisfying that interest and dispelling that mystery. She outlines and explains simply the beliefs of Baha'i, relieving what might tend to become the tedium of sustained exposition by an interesting account of Baha'i history, from its foundation in the last century, by a Persian seer named Baha'u'llah, to the present day. As a popularization. The Baha'i Faith is an excellent general introduction to the subject, which will be welcomed by the merely curious, the professional spiritual itinerants, and the faithful alike. It is not however a book for students of religion or for professional in the field, who will be aghast at the author's utterly uncritical approach to the sometimes formidable philosophical difficulties implicit in the tenets of Baha'i.
