The Prisoner and the Kings

How One Man Changed the Course of History

A riveting historical account of a prisoner in a Turkish penal colony and the world-changing letters he sent to the religious and secular leaders.

Between 1867 and 1873 a solitary prisoner in a Turkish penal colony wrote a series of letters to the kings and emperors of the day, predicting with amazing accuracy the course of modern history: the fall of several nations, the overthrow of certain individual monarchs, the decline of specific religious institutions, the rise of communism, and the threat of nuclear weapons.

The prisoner was Bahá'u'lláh, Prophet and Founder of the Bahá'í Faith. What was the source of the prisoner's knowledge? What did the letters have to say about the future of humanity in the twenty-first century? The answers are here.
