A World Without War

‘Abdu’l-Bahá and the Discourse for Global Peace

In this volume, the historical circumstances that shaped nineteenth-century peace movements and the catastrophic impact of the First World War are examined. During the time these significant events were unfolding, ‘Abdu’l-Bahá was actively engaged in promoting a clear understanding of the Bahá'í perspective on peace. Far more than simply focusing His discourse on the means to end wars, ‘Abdu’l-Bahá offered the holistic, all-inclusive vision for global peace - the oneness of humanity - outlined in the Writings of Bahá'u'lláh. The historical context is important to having a thorough appreciation of the contribution ‘Abdu’l-Bahá made to the discourses for global peace that were taking place before and immediately after World War I.

This book illustrates ‘Abdu’l-Bahá's strategic language and energetic approach toward communicating His Father's vision. It highlights the priority He accorded the current issues of His day and the manner in which He correlated them with...Show More

This book illustrates ‘Abdu’l-Bahá's strategic language and energetic approach toward communicating His Father's vision. It highlights the priority He accorded the current issues of His day and the manner in which He correlated them with the Bahá'í teachings. His engagement with intellectuals and leaders of thought on the subject of the implementation of peace provided an outstanding model for humanity during the early years of the twentieth century, and His example has continuing relevance for the state of the world and the discourse on peace in the twenty-first century.
