Discover the Baha’i faith, which offers a new way of understanding world religion and history as a drama of overall progress. The Baha’i faith is a new world religion that affirms the unity of God, religion and humanity while promoting an ever-advancing global civilization.
We’ll take a developmental and objective approach to considering Baha’u’llah (1817–1892), founder of the Baha’i faith, and his forerunner, the Bab (1819–1850). (The titles “the Bab” and “Baha’u’llah” mean “gate” and “glory of God” respectively.) We will explore their emergence in 19th-century Persia, their transformative ministries and universal teachings, and the global civilization arising in their wake, using an informal lecture-discussion format. Our goal is a broader, deeper understanding of humanity’s spiritual progress across the ages and our current transition to a more united world.
