by Amín Egea
Read all about it! Apostle of Peace comes to town! When 'Abdu'l-Bahá set sail from the Middle East in 1911 and again in 1912 to bring to the West the message of peace found in the teachings of His father, Bahá'u'lláh, His arrival was headline news in towns and cities across Europe and North America.

During 1911 and 1913, in the giddy frivolity of Paris life, boldly stepped the Persian spiritual philosopher and head of the Baha'i world community, 'Abdu'l-Baha; as the 'Belle Epoque' with its flamboyant artistic life closed its curtains and the clouds of war gathered, he carried into that country a new vision and light that would draw people forward along the paths of morality and spiritual awareness.
Men and women from all walks of life - artists, writers, politicians, journalists, philosophers, theologians, diplomats, teachers, musicians, lawyers, scientists, the poor and those who were among them - all were privileged to be inspired by this peerless Abdul-Baha. This book is a thorough chronicle of those nine precious months spent in France.

This book was the first comprehensive biography of this magnetic figure and perfect Exemplar of Baha'i life, and remains the foremost source for subsequent accounts. Abdu'l-Bahá was one of the most outstanding, active and exemplary people in human spiritual history. Through many stories and vignettes, as well as a history of his life, this book presents perhaps the most comprehensive biography of Abdu'l-Bahá available.
The Hand of the Cause of God George Townshend was designated by Shoghi Effendi, Guardian of the Bahá'í Faith, as ... the best writer we have ... the pre-eminent Bahá'í writer.' This volume brings together some of his particular writings about 'Abdu'l-Bahá. In this way his own portrait of the Master emerges, with befitting reverence to the Centre of the Covenant, the Exemplar, the Mystery of God.
