The Bahá’í Faith in Words and Images

In an age where so many are preoccupied with global issues of freedom, human rights, peace and religious intolerance, the Bahá’í Faith and its teachings are more relevant than ever before. This volume combines comprehensive coverage of the Faith’s teachings, texts, practices, community life and organization, with images reflecting its rich architectural heritage and the international diversity of its members.

Paul Slaughter spent three years travelling around the world to capture the photographs for The Bahá’í Faith in Words and Images, from remote tribes in Papua New Guinea to villages in the mountains of Peru, taking in every continent. Breathtaking photography and intelligent accompanying text are combined to produce a beautiful coffee-table book, and accessible introduction to one of the fastest-growing religions of today.
