This book is a photo-illustrated arrangement of: * quotations from Baha'i Writings * photographs of the Faith's spiritual and administrative center on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea * narration of the history of the life of Baha'u'llah, the Founder of the Baha'i Faith, and development of His world community of followers 'Hasten Forth: The Dispensation of Baha'u'llah' is both a wonderful introduction to the youngest of the world's great religions and a beautiful depiction of the Faith's fundamental verities. The book draws from recent photos of the Baha'i properties and Holy Places in the Western Galilee and from quotations selected for the essay "The Dispensation of Baha'u'llah," written by Shoghi Effendi, the great-grandson of the Baha'u'llah and head of the Baha'i world community from 1921-1957. Photos take you on a visual journey as the captions narrate a brief history of the Bahá'í Faith in the Holy Land and details about these precious UNESCO World Heritage Sites nestled on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea. Experience a glimpse of the pilgrimage experience through the creative angles of the lens: * Circumambulate the gardens of Báhjí from dawn to dusk * Greet panoramic vistas at daybreak atop Mount Carmel * Approach 'Akká's coastal cityscape from the sea * Take in nighttime impressions of the Arc on Mount Carmel with fully-illumined buildings and gardens The book addresses themes of the unity of mankind, the stations of Bahá'u'lláh, the Báb and 'Abdu'l-Bahá, progressive Revelation, the power of the Messengers of God, the nature of the Bahá'í Administration, the significance of the time we live in, and more.
