‘Abdu’l-Bahá: The Centre of the Covenant of Bahá'u'lláh

This book is still the standard biography on the life of the individual who was designated by Bahá'u'lláh as the Most Great Branch, the Master and the Centre of the Covenant.

Researched in detail, this book condenses one of the most outstanding, active and exemplary lives in human spiritual history. With accuracy and care it covers the significant periods and pivotal events, and exemplifies in many inspiring stories and vignettes, the spirit that animated ‘Abdu’l-Bahá's tireless, essential and global range of services and sacrifice.

The book describes ‘Abdu’l-Bahá's journey to the West, the places he visited and audiences he addressed, many of those who were privileged to meet him, and the example he gave in daily life. The ideals he upheld for all are reflected in a wealth of quotations from his talks.

About Hasan Balyuzi

Hasan Balyuzi, loved and honoured throughout the Bahá'í world for his invaluable books on the three Central Figures of the Bahá'í Faith, as well as for other important works, was mourned on his passing by the Universal House of Justice as one of 'the most powerful defenders, most resourceful historians' of the Faith.

He was related to the Báb, and a member of a family distinguished in Iran, but his belief was of conviction and not inheritance. It was his meeting at the age of seventeen with the Guardian, Shoghi Effendi, that stirred him to accept nearly five decades of unceasing labour in administrative, teaching and scholarly fields for the advancement of the Cause. In 1957 he was elevated to the rank of Hand of the Cause of God. The last fifteen years his life were wholly devoted to the writing of the eight books by which he will always be remembered.
