|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 in France. This book is a thorough chronicle of those nine precious months spent in France, conveying 'Abdu'l-Baha`s daily tasks and journeys, private conversations and public talks day by day through contemporary accounts. The people he encountered, newspaper articles and touching memories that were written are ail quoted and described, with referenced. 'Abdu'l-Baha's message of love for ail and of the spiritual reality of the human soul shine through in the pages you will read in this book.
