Baha'u'llah, The Prince Of Peace
by David Hofman
An absorbing account of the dramatic life of Bahá'u'lláh, set against the vast changes which have overtaken the world in the last century and a half and the great opportunity for world peace now at long last opening before the nations
'There is no more urgent or intractable problem facing humanity today than the establishment of peace in the world. This is no longer a dream of visionaries or an expression of vague and pious hope, but the essential prerequisite to the continuance of human life on this planet.'
The two steps of Bahá'u'lláh's peace programme - the Lesser Peace and the Most Great Peace - are clearly explained and the vision of this new world order is shown as a practical reality.
The majesty and grandeur of Bahá'u'lláh pervade the whole book, making it, as one review states, 'an enthralling portrait' which 'one can enjoy and become absorbed in . . .', 'a book of immeasurable value'.
There are copious quotations from Bahá'u'lláh's own writings and many well-known aphorisms:
'The earth is but one country and mankind its citizens.'
'Soon will the present day order be rolled up and a new one spread out in its stead.'
'The time foreordained unto the peoples and kindreds of the earth is now come.'
