Bahai.org states that Baha’u’llah is regarded by the Baha’is as the most recent in the line of Messengers of God that stretches back beyond recorded time and that includes Abraham, Moses, Buddha, Krishna, Zoroaster, Christ and Muhammad. He is the founder of The Baha’i Faith, the youngest of the world’s independent religions. The central theme of Baha’u’llah's message is that humanity is one single race and that the day has come for its unification in one global society. God, Baha’u’llah said, has set in motion historical forces that are breaking down traditional barriers of race, class, creed, and nation and that will, in time, give birth to a universal civilization. The principal challenge facing the peoples of the earth is to accept the fact of their oneness and to assist the processes of unification. But how much do Christians know about him and this faith? Author Thom Thompson sheds light on the many questions from Christians in his book, Questions from Christians: About Baha'u'llah And The Baha'i Faith.
In Questions from Christians: About Baha'u'llah And The Baha'i Faith, a ‘conversation’ between a Christian and a Baha’i, Christians find answers to questions about the Baha’i Faith, and Baha’u’llah and His teachings. In addition to learning why Baha’is accept Baha’u’llah as the return of the spirit of Christ, Christians can learn what Baha’u’llah taught about God, Jesus Christ, the virgin birth, the Bible, life after death, sin, forgiveness and the time of the end. Christians are introduced to Baha’u’llah as ‘The Father of all Mankind,’ who has come to lead all men and women of the earth into an ingathering and unification of the human race.
“This is wonderful material…not only will it bring countless Christians to the point of accepting Baha’u’llah, but it also will, I am convinced, help countless Baha’is to develop a new reverence for Christ, and a heightened sense of connectedness to their Christian brothers and sisters” says Gary Matthews, author of “He Cometh with Clouds”.
This book will be featured at the 2011 New York Library Association Book Exhibit in Saratoga Springs, NY on November 2-5, 2011.
