About The World Order of Bahá'u'lláh

this edition copy; Wilmette: Bahá'í Publishing Trust, 1991

Excerpt from the Wilmette Institute brochure for the course on this book (please see also
The World Order of Bahá'u'lláh is perhaps the most important work by Shoghi Effendi. It consists of seven letters penned between 1930 and 1936 to the Bahá'ís of the United States and Canada. The letters treat some of the most important subjects addressed by the Guardian: the stations of Bahá'u'lláh, the Báb, `Abdu'l-Bahá, and the Administrative Order, which otherwise might never have been grasped clearly; the nature, and purpose of the Bahá'í Administrative Order and its relationship to other forms of organization, a matter vital to understanding the Faith's uniqueness; and the relationship between the Administrative Order and the Golden Age, crucial for understanding the future of the Faith. A clear understanding of these epistles is essential for a well-deepened Bahá'í.
