Abstract An academic article about the prophetic expectations of a covenant-breaker group, Baha’is Under the Provisions of the Covenant. Followed by "The End is Nearish," Chase's predictions satirized by Harper's.
Notes See also the author's earlier study, When the Bombs Drop: Reactions to Disconfirmed Prophecy in a Millennial Sect.

The "Baha'i sect" discussed in this article is not affiliated with the Baha'i Faith, follows a different set of writings, and has been sued by the legal trademark holders for illegitimate use of Baha'i terms; see WIPO Domain Name Dispute: Case D2005-0214, "uhj.net". On whether the real Baha'i Faith has "sects," see The Covenant, Bahá'u'lláh's "Supreme Gift", Protects The Bahá'í Faith From Schism (offsite).

This article was reprinted in a later collection, Expecting Armageddon: Essential Readings in Failed Prophecy, ed. Jon R. Stone (Routledge, 2000), pp. 269-282. Read both on Amazon: the 1997 publication and the 2000 publication. See below for "End is Nearish."
