Will and Testament of 'Abdu'l-Bahá:
Study Outlines

compiled by Brett Zamir.
These are a set of outlines of the Will and Testament of 'Abdu'l-Bahá.
The first is based on Shoghi Effendi's thematic outline given in God Passes By (with a few subtitles added as well as links to the relevant paragraph references);

the second is a detailed sequential outline which follows the text paragraph by paragraph;

the third is also thematic, but goes into greater detail (the outlines highlight the themes by section as well as for the entire book);

the fourth section is my own summary of what I perceive to be unique (or at least almost unique) elements of the Will and Testament of 'Abdu'l-Bahá, not found elsewhere in the Bahá'í Writings (to my knowledge at least--let me know if I am mistaken: ).

  1. Pre-Condensed Outlines (1-4)

  2. Pre-Expanded Outlines (1-4)

Please note: as I did not count the statement at the beginning of each part of the Will and Testament as a paragraph, my paragraph numbering differs slightly from the document to which I am linking. Nevertheless, I have set up my links to lead to the appropriate paragraph. For example, though the fifth paragraph of part three in my scheme is really no. 6 in the scheme at to which it is leading, any link to paragraph 5 in my document should lead appropriately to no. 6 in the other numbering scheme of the Will. (Keep in mind that the numbering of the paragraph that should appear will show up as a number one higher than that at the link from which you have come.)
