IMAGINE AN ANCIENT, universal and Divinely-conceived plan that is binding together the world's great religions, unfolding over time and guiding humanity toward an ultimate, meaningful purpose. Such a Divine plan exists. All creation is the classroom. And Divine Educators have presented this soul-saving and civilization-advancing curriculum to all of humanity.
The Divine Curriculum is progressive and never-ending because the knowledge and grace of God cannot be exhausted. The six-volume Divine Curriculum series tells the surprising 4,000-year story of how the great Divine Educators were sent by God from the earliest times to educate humanity -- and yet, according to author Edward Price, this sweeping story has really just begun.
IMAGINE AN ANCIENT, universal and Divinely-conceived educational program in which all of creation is a classroom. For ages, God has been sending Divine Educators to humanity, such as Abraham, Moses, Jesus, Muhammad, the Báb, and Bahá'u'lláh. This book examines the life and teachings of the Báb ("the Gate). The story begins in 1844 in Persia when He shocks the nation with a new Revelation from God.
His ideas were remarkably modern: "All things" are reflections of God. The oneness and infinity of God. The unity of His Messengers. Searching for truth. Bringing joy not grief to others. Avoiding intolerance. Keeping the environment pure. Advancement of women. And more. The Báb was also the Forerunner of a Divine Educator greater than Himself.
The Faith was persecuted. The Báb was killed. 20,000 followers were martyred. Nevertheless, the Faith grew into a world religion, with over five million members in over 200 countries. Today it is known as the Baha'i Faith. The compelling drama begins with the heroic story of the Báb.
