Worldwide in its membership and increasingly being recognized as the youngest of the world religions, the Baha’i Faith is enjoying rapid expansion. In this captivating book, Moojan Momen gives a brief survey of the life, the works, and the teachings of Baha'u'llah, its founder. Covering the resistance he encountered - including successive forced exiles and vitriolic opposition - this is a carefully constructed account of the eventful life of this influential nineteenth-century religious figure. Comprehensive and yet concise, this is a perfect book for anyone interested in knowing more about the Baha’i Faith and its founder.
Dr Moojan Momen has lectured at many universities on topics in Middle Eastern studies and religious studies. He is a Fellow of the Royal Asiatic Society and the author of many books on world religions including Baha'u'llah: A Short Biogrpahy, also published by Oneworld.
