At this stage in the evolution of the Bahá’í Faith, knowledge of the teachings of the Báb among most Bahá’ís is limited to a few vague generalities which do not adequately represent the broad range of the writings of the Báb. This book is an attempt to produce a systematic presentation of the teachings of the Báb insofar as this can be done from the translations presently available. In addition, Boris Handal looks at the prophecies relating to Bahá’u’lláh in the Bábí scriptures and the extent to which the Bab’s laws have been carried forward into the Bahá’i Revelation. We are still a long way from a full understanding of the Dispensation of the Báb but this book will help Bahá’ís take us a further step forward along that path. [M. Momen]
