About: Current studies by leading scientists have suggested an imminent “Grand Transition” or “Megaleap” in human evolution, as foreshadowed by ‘Abdu’l-Bahá in His prediction of a Lesser Peace before the oncoming end of the century. In seeking to provide a view of North America’s and the Bahá’í Faith’s role at this time of probable crisis, a number of scenarios of possible radical change are suggested, along with the unique characteristics of the Bahá’í teachings which make the Bahá’í Faith the logical candidate for salvation of individuals and society, the bonding power for that world unity already far toward realization by humankind.
