    Good introduction to the faith. I'm always interested in what and why people are thinking and believing in the way they do.I find so much similarity comes through majority of the major faiths. All believe they have special words from God or special insight from something other than themselves. The differences of words and insights being the cause of much human anguish and terrible pain that we inflict on each other.I often wonder who actually sees the whole of the mountain we are all living on. Trees myside, rocks and sand the other, perhaps snow above. The mountain remains the mountain, we just have different views from where we stand. If what you believe and how you behave enhances your life and interactions with your fellow human beings, if it gives peace, joy, patience, is not jealous, is long suffering, tolerant, takes no account of wrongs done. Hopes for the best in all things, Does not look for you to maim and murder others. Give it a go. The Baha' I way appears to be like this. I would recommend this book as a good introduction..

    This book is very good at describing the practical life of a Baha'i and ethics and a brief history of the faith. However it is somehow lacking in theological discussion with only a short chapter near the end of the book which I found disappointing. If you like quotes this book is great as every page is taken up by at least one long quote, as for me I found this a bit irritating as it was almost as if the author couldn't be bothered to write the information himself and instead compiled quotes from the leaders of the Baha'i faith and filled them out inbetween.
