With Harold Rosen
What was the most significant transition for humanity in the 19th century? Baha’is believe that future historians, in response to this question, will point to the emergence of the Baha’i Faith. This new religion aims toward an ever-advancing global civilization, with peace, justice and prosperity for all people. October 2019 marks the 200th anniversary of the birth of the forerunner and herald of the Baha’i Faith. The Bab (‘Gate’) prepared the way for Baha’u’llah (‘Glory of God’), and these Twin Founders taught such principles as the independent investigation of truth, progressive revelation, consultative global governance, the complementary nature of science and religion, as well as racial and gender equality. Let’s explore the contemporary relevance of these historical events and universal principles.
