The Bahai'i faith centers on its belief that all human spirituality comes from one God, and therefore stresses the unity of all with the guiding principles of tolerance and acceptance. Moojan Momen provides a handy introduction for newcomers hoping to gain greater understanding of the monotheistic religion's beliefs and practices, using comprehensive quotations from founders Baha'u'llah and his son Abdu'l-Baha, who helped to spread the religion worldwide. Miranda Nation gives Momen's descriptions a clean and respectful sensibility, and her performance creates a welcoming atmosphere for listeners intrigued by the philosophies of the Bahai'i.
The youngest of the world religions, the Baha’i Faith is well known for its belief in the oneness of all religions. In this clear, readable, and informative guide, Momen provides a vibrant introduction to all aspects of this fast-expanding faith, which now has over seven million adherents.
From its teachings on the spiritual development of the individual to the belief in the need for world peace, Momen’s comprehensive study gives anyone interested in the contemporary religious landscape an authoritative insight into this 150-year old tradition, whose spiritual and social teachings are so much in tune with the concerns of today.
