'Abdu'l-Baha In Their Midst
by Earl Redman
The heartwarming story of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá’s journeys in the West and their effect on those who met Him, told in their own words.
If the believers . . . establish, in a befitting manner, union and harmony
with spirit, tongue, heart and body, suddenly they shall find ‘Abdu’l-Bahá in their midst. ‘Abdu’l-Bahá
‘Abdu’l-Bahá in Their Midst is the story of the journeys of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá
to Europe and North America over the period 1911 to 1913.
Rather than focusing on the public talks he gave, inspiring though these were, it narrates how ‘Abdu’l-Bahá affected and transformed the lives of those he met, described in their own words.
A revealing and heartwarming book.
Earl Redman is a geologist who worked in Alaska and Chile for two decades. One job was for the US Bureau of Mines, studying mineral deposits in the Juneau Gold Belt, Alaska. In 1999 he moved with his wife Sharon to Ireland, where he has researched and written five books, exploring the gold mines of the stories included in ‘Abdu’l-Bahá in Their Midst, the two volumes of Shoghi Effendi Through the Pilgrim’s Eye, a book on the Knights of Bahá’u’lláh, and this volume on pilgrims who visited ‘Abdu’l-Bahá in the Holy Land before His Western journeys. A second volume tells the story of pilgrims to the Holy Land after ‘Abdu’l-Bahá’s return in 1913.
Earl and Sharon have travelled widely and for long periods in recent years and are much in demand as speakers and storytellers.
