'Abdu'l-Baha in New York

by Hussein Ahdieh and Hillary Chapman

Hong Kong: Juxta Publishing Co., 2012
Abstract: Of all the historical, religious and cultural events in the history of the United States, the arrival of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá in 1912 was the most important one of all. Many people—from all facets of society—had the honor to meet Him, attend His talks, benefit from His wisdom and witness His benevolence and humility. Their encounter with ‘Abdu’l-Bahá was life-altering: He touched the depths of their souls and awakened them spiritually. This re-telling of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá’s days in New York City is both inspiring and illuminating. It is intended to bring you closer to this unique figure in spiritual history, whose life will serve as a model of the true spiritual and ethical life for centuries to come.
