The Baha'i Faith in Words and Images by John Danesh, Seena Fazel

The Baha'i Faith in Words and Images



The Baha'i Faith in Words and Images by John Danesh, Seena Fazel

In an age where so many are preoccupied with global issues of freedom, human rights, peace and religious intolerance, the Baha'i Faith and its teachings are more relevant than ever before. This volume combines comprehensive coverage of the Faith's teachings, texts, practices, community life and organization, with images reflecting its rich architectural heritage and the international diversity of its members. Paul Slaughter spent three years travelling around the world to capture the photographs for The Baha'i Faith in Words and Images, from remote tribes in Papua New Guinea to villages in the mountains of Peru, taking in every continent. Breathtaking photography and intelligent accompanying text are combined to produce a beautiful coffee-table book, and accessible introduction to one of the fastest-growing religions of today.

Their sending me my first book to review 18 months ago re-awakened my fondness for reading, since then I have purchased some real gems.

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.

Sally Ellsmore

I love Lovereading because I get to read great books and then get to tell everybody how good they are.

A great place to go to find your next literary escape, and where you don't have to judge a book by its cover!

Lovereading takes the guesswork out of finding your next read with "if you like you'll love" and extracts to help with your decision.
