Baha'u'llah and the New Era shines as the very best general introductory book about the Baha'i Faith of its time, and remains today the most widely known and most used textbook of the Baha'i Faith, having been translated into some 60 languages. In this compact work, Esslemont comprehensively yet succinctly sets forth the teachings of Baha'u'llah, the Prophet and Founder of the Baha'i Faith. He outlines the religion's early history; explains the religion's theology; incorporates extracts from Baha'i scripture; and provides information on Baha'i spiritual practices. Essential reading for students of comparative religion.
