* Prophecy in the Johannine Farewell Discourse: The Advents of the Paraclete, Ahmad and Comforter (Mu'azzí)

About the series
Bahá'í Studies is a challenging series developed for students of the Bahá'í Faith and those teaching courses on the religion. Subjects to be covered by the series include the history and development of the religion, its sociology, theology and literature, as well as the religious, social and cultural contexts of its birth and growth.
Bahá'í Studies will be especially interesting to those with an academic interest in the Bahá'í Faith, those who wish to undertake a serious study of the religion and those who want to study it at a level deeper than is possible with introductory books. Libraries and academic institutions will find the series a particularly useful addition to their collections.
