Teaching the Baha'i Faith: Spirit in Action

Availability: Ready to download

In the Bahá'í Faith, so its followers believe, may be found a healing message for the world - the fulfilment of the age-old promise of all religions. One of the greatest longings of a Bahá'í, then, is to see this message accepted by humanity as a whole. And since the Bahá'í Faith has no clergy or other class of professional religious teachers, it is the ordinary believers In the Bahá'í Faith, so its followers believe, may be found a healing message for the world - the fulfilment of the age-old promise of all religions. One of the greatest longings of a Bahá'í, then, is to see this message accepted by humanity as a whole. And since the Bahá'í Faith has no clergy or other class of professional religious teachers, it is the ordinary believers themselves who must bring their Faith to the notice of those who are as yet unaware of it. Coercion of any kind is forbidden in the Bahá'í teachings; instead, Bahá'ís are enjoined to teach their beliefs with 'wisdom and utterance' and people who accept the Bahá'í Faith must do so of their own free will and conscience. This book has been written with the express purpose of helping Bahá'ís to share their beliefs with others and to confirm new believers in the teachings of Bahá'u'lláh. Gathering together examples of successful teaching, gleaned both from his own experience and from that of others in many parts of the world, the author shows how Bahá'ís actually approach the teaching of their religion. But the book is not a mere handbook of techniques on how to be a successful Bahá'í teacher. Rather, the need for a spiritual awakening in the teacher is clearly demonstrated, and the book outlines the ways in which spiritual awareness may be attained, using the guidelines given by Bahá'u'lláh Himself. Thus in one book are described both the spiritual and the practical steps a Bahá'í needs to take in order to witness the growth of his Faith by the enrolment of new believers.
