Bahá’u’lláh and the New Era

John E. Esslemont

ver. 1.0

First published in 1923, Bahá’u’lláh and the New Era offers readers a thorough introduction to the Bahá’í Faith written by one of its early adherents. Through studious investigation of the young religion, aided by a close relationship with ‘Abdu’l‑Bahá—the son and successor of Bahá’u’lláh, its Prophet and Founder—Dr. John E. Esslemont gained rare insight into the history and teachings of a religion still in its infant stages.

Since its first publication, Dr. Esslemont’s book, now translated into sixty-seven different languages, remains one of the most enduring and widely used introductory books on the Bahá’í Faith.
