About the Author:

Baha'u'llah, a title of honor meaning "The Glory of God," is associated with Mirza Husayn-'Ali (1817-1892), the Prophet and Founder of the Baha'i Faith. Baha'u'llah claimed that His Divine Mission is to bring about the spiritual rebirth and the unity of mankind. His voluminous writings, collectively referred to as The Revelation of Baha'u'llah, are the foundation of the Baha'i Faith, the world's youngest independent world religion.

'Abdu'l-Baha, a title of honor meaning "Servant of the Glory," is associated with Abbas Effendi (1844-1921), the eldest son and appointed successor of Baha'u'llah, the Prophet and Founder of the Baha'i Faith. Abdu'l-Baha shared a lifetime of imprisonment and exile with his father at the hands of the Ottoman Empire.

Review:

"The mission of the Prophets, the revelation of the Holy Books, the manifestation of the heavenly teachers and the purpose of divine philosophy all center in the training of the human realities so that they may become clear and pure as mirrors and reflect the light and love of [God]...Otherwise, by simple developments along material lines is not perfected. At most, the physical aspect of man, his natural or material conditions, may become stabilized and improved, but he will remain deprived of the spiritual or divine bestowal. He is then like a body without a spirit, a lamp without a light..."
