Portals to Freedom

Portals to Freedom is an intimate portrait of one of the most significant religious figures in recent history, ‘Abdu’l-Bahá - the son and appointed successor of the Prophet of the Bahá’í Faith.

Portals to Freedom is an intimate portrait of one of the most significant religious figures in recent history, ‘Abdu’l-Bahá - the son and appointed successor of the Prophet of the Bahá’í Faith. Author Howard Colby Ives offers us a remarkably candid and honest description of his own personal spiritual search as a Unitarian minister struggling with questions of faith and spirituality. His search ultimately led him to a discovery of the Bahá’í Faith just a short time before ‘Abdu’l-Bahá arrived in North America in 1912 on a quest to share the teachings and vision of his father with the people of the West.

In Portals we get not only Ives's personal reflections and inner struggles, but a fascinating eyewitness account of the words and actions of one who has been described by his Prophet-father as "the Mystery of God," is considered by Bahá’ís to be the perfect exemplar of the Faith's teachings, and who emerged from a lifetime of exile at the hands of the Ottoman Empire to travel tirelessly and share the Faith's message of unity in a profound and loving manner that touched the hearts of all with whom He came in contact.
