Esslemont became "acquainted" with the Baha'i teachings in 1914. He corresponded with and visited Abdu'l-Baha, the son of Baha'u'llah, in 1919-20. Thereafter he wrote this work, and submitted it to the Baha'i Assembly of England, with Shoghi Effendi's approval.

In the first chapter "Glad Tidings", the "greatest event in History" is announced--that Baha'u'llah -- "The Promised one of all the peoples of the world hath appeared". Citing Abdu'l-Baha. Carlyle's description of the "Great Man" in history is quoted, and highlighted with the Prophet who appears "Alone against the world, without a single human being capable of teaching, guiding, of fully understanding Him, or of sharing His responsibility." [4]

Esslemont logically proceeds from the pronouncement to the proofs of Prophethood. He notes that Baha'u'llah asked no one to accept his statements blindly. He proposes the same tests of authenticity as those established by his predecessors. Moses laid down the test of whether the prophesies are accurate in "coming to pass". Jesus appealed to the fruits--"Ye shall know them by their fruits". [10-11].

Esauriente, minuziosa, autorevole esposizione della Fede bahá’í. L’autore ne espone la storia, ne spiega la teologia, gli insegnamenti e le pratiche spirituali, avvalendosi di molti brani tratti dalle Scritture bahá’í. È un compagno in-sostituibile per chi voglia incominciare a conoscere questa Fede.

About the Author:

J. E. Esslemont (1874-1925) was a prominent Baha'i from Scotland. He trained in medicine at Aberdeen University, graduating in 1898. Tuberculosis forced him to abandon a promising career in medical research and to pursue other interests. He was also a linguist, learning six languages including Persian and Arabic. This enabled him to assist in translating a number of important Baha'i works. "Baha'u'llah and the New Era" first appeared in 1923.
