Vignettes From The Life Of Abdu'l-Baha
by Annamarie Honnold
A unique collection of stories, sayings and comments, providing a special insight into the life, character and station of 'Abdu'l-Bahá.
Vignettes from the Life of 'Abdu'l-Bahá is a unique collection of stories, sayings and comments, providing a special insight into the life, character and station of Bahá’u’lláh’s eldest son. He was universally known to Bahá’ís as the Master but wished only to be known as the Servant. Not only those qualities for which He was chosen as the Centre of Bahá’u’lláh’s Covenant, but also the human virtues which made Him the Perfect Exemplar for all Bahá’ís, are amply illustrated in over two hundred and fifty vignettes of His life, drawn from a very wide range of published, out-of-print and unpublished sources. The book is divided into three main sections, His Pure Heart, His Kindly Heart, and His Radiant Heart; and for those not already acquainted with the main events of His life, there is a brief factual introduction. The book is enhanced by a mixed selection of rare and well-loved photographs, and is itself dedicated to 'Abdu'l-Bahá.
