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, 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. Professor John Danesh and Dr Seena Fazel have edited The Baha'i Studies Review for over a decade, and have written numerous articles on issues related to the Baha'i Faith. Paul Slaughter is an acclaimed photographer whose work has been exhibited all over the world, his clients include Time magazine and National Geographic.
